I think it's beautiful! How large are the holes? Why don't you try weaving some more yarn through the holes and then refelting a bit? It looks so great. If they're not very big, I'd forget them!

Thanks, Jouf and Margie!!

And Jouf, I almost did just what you suggest, but I'm afraid to felt the bag any further; it's already much smaller than it should be.

Oh well. I'll live! And at least I know now just how beautiful snickerdoodle is when it felts!

Angelia --- It's beautiful! Where are the holes? Could you use some embroidery thread and monogram it for her, or are they in weird place for that.

Places are too weird, unfortunately. The dh suggested I sew on buttons of various sizes randomly (and not so randomly!) on the bag. Not a bad idea, really!

She'll just laugh when I tell her about the holes; this is just so typically ME that she'll find it hilarious.

If someone knitted a bag like that for me (holes or no holes) I would be absolutely thrilled. It looks fabulous.

I think it looks fab! I really like that pattern...I've gone back and forth about buying it...how much yarn does it require??

Yardage varies according to the size you knit. I used about 600 or 700 for that particular bag.
