Woobly Circles Felted Tote

This was part of Christmas gift 2006 for my FIL's wife. Let's just say that they want for absolutely nothing, which makes gifts for either of them incredibly difficult. This past year I thought that I would make Christmas gifts for her so that I could give her something that she simply could not buy.
I suppose that I had hoped that she would both like and appreciate the time and effort that I had put into things, but I don't think that I really expected her to... However, this past weekend, we spent a night with them. Now if someone has given me a gift that I don't like, I do try to be a least gracious enough to not make it obvious. Having spotted the bag in a pile of purses thrown on the floor in the corner of the bedroom we slept in, I decided to take the opportunity to take a picture of the bag.
I dislike the notion that we need to spend lots of money for a gift to be "nice". I personally always appreciate a handmade gift. Next year they may be getting lumps or coal or potatoes!

I love the bag! So many just don't appreciate handmade thoughtful presents.....I have had this experience also with relatives. Love the pattern of circles!

I didn't see this post before, as it was before I started reading your blog. I was looking at your FO's to find your tiger socks. Mine came this week. I love this purse...and can not believe that someone would leave it laying around. Next time you visit steal it back. =0)
