Anchorage Museum: Dog Blanket

After seeing this dog blanket, I decided I must create something special for my dog when we go on walks! He will not like it at all, but what a fun project to bead and applique!

 For special occasions, Gwich'in chiefs and wealthy men dressed their sled dog teams in beaded, embroidered velvet blankets with sleigh bells and long yarn fringes.
