Everyone on our block is walking an adorable new puppy these days, and the temptation to bring home a best friend is strong--but the idea of adding ?Dog Hair Wrangler? to our résumés keeps us from taking the plunge.
Thankfully, we?ve found an easier way to become pet owners.
Ready to embrace a simpler existence, Mino was taking classes at the Farm School in Athol, Massachusetts, when he became hooked (pun intended) on needle felting.
The irresistible animal sculptures--which include everything from pigs to donkeys--are available at ODLCO, a by-appointment design studio in the West Loop; they range from $50 for smaller creations like a two-inch-tall lamb to $400 for a five-inch-tall grizzly bear.
Want to immortalize your beloved golden retriever or childhood pony? Mino takes orders for custom animals through his website. Just provide him with photos from several angles; the pet sculptures also cost between $50 and $400.
No pre-dawn walks or 50-pound bags of kibble required.
