Homemade with love

And after!
 My felted tote!
This was a fun project for me. I am a beginner knitter (does that sound strange)? I was so pleased how my felted tote turned out for my dear friend Bobby Jean. I made this larger tote for Bobby Jean for her dog gear. She has a love for animals and has rescued many dogs. She treats her pets so well. I thought a large tote for her items, she needs when taking the dogs for a ride, would be a great Christmas gift for her. I had a lot of fun knitting this tote. The best part is putting it in the washer and felting. It is amazing how it turns out!
Time to start working on 2013 Christmas projects.
That is, if I can get to my knitting?


  1. Bobby will LOVE that!! So I'm assuming you didn't try to felt the kitty with it? lol

  2. What a sweet and thoughtful gift. Homemade gifts are priceless. I am sure Bobby Jean loved it. I can't wait to see what you make for 2013!
