Small Teddy swaddled in a blanket inside a pretty moses basket.

I introduced a picture of a new Moses Basket with a Small Teddy Inside as the closing picture of a post back in August.

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-blue-mix-1
I had made them for local fayres, but hadn’t had time to make a post about them.

Well here they are 🙂

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-pink-mix-7

I have made only a small number of these, because the plush little teddies that fit nicely inside are in short supply right now.

Now there are only 3 left I’m afraid. but I’m so pleased with them, I thought I would make a post about them anyway 🙂

The moses baskets are crocheted in pretty pastel colours and are deep enough to hold the teddy perfectly and the teddy inside comes wrapped in a large swaddling blanket to keep out the cold just in case!

The teddy comes with the CE safety tag. It measures just over 5 inches (13cms) from top of head to bottom of feet.
It is a chubby little teddy with jointed, moveable arms and legs.
And it wears a pretty red bow 🙂

I have placed one of these little moses baskets and teddy on our Etsy shop.
You can see it here:

The other two will be for sale at upcoming markets.

These small baskets with teddies are for children over the age of 36 months. And I’ve already discovered that children over 3 absolutely love them!

If I find more suitable-sized teddies, I will definitely make more of these cute moses basket sets, but for now, here are a couple more pictures of two of the remaining ones.

Little Crochet Pouches Make Ideal Gifts

Each of these pretty little crochet pouches is one of a kind.

small-pouches-front-and-back-and-teddies-1-500

Another brand new set for Teddy in a Bag are these dear little crochet pouches.

small-pouches-4-from-front-and-teddies-1-500

They are made from crochet ‘granny squares’ and each one is different in some way.

small-pouches-lots-from-back-and-teddies-1-500
As you can see from the pictures, from the front they may look alike, but turn them over and you may find a flower, a mandala pattern, a peacock’s tail, a spiral, a moon, or many other little patterns.

Suitable for adults and children over 3 years, these little pouches are ideal to store make up, keepsakes, small toys… or of course a tiny teddy 🙂
small-pouches-4-from-back-and-teddies-1-500

As they are individuals, sizes vary a little, but the average size of these little pouches is 10cms (4 inches) wide and 9cms (3.5 inches) in height.

They all have a button closure, but open they can also be fixed to a hook (in the bathroom, etc) to hold and display little items.
small-pouches-4-from-front-and-teddies-inside-1-500

At the moment, these little pouches are for sale only at markets and fayres, but may make an appearance in our Etsy shop later in the year.

Prices for markets and fayres is:
Pouch only – £3 each.
Pouch with tiny teddy inside – £3.50 each.

I would guess that these little crochet pouches would make ideal stocking fillers for Christmas too 🙂

Teddies in Sleeping Bags Join Teddy In A Bag!

Brand new to Teddy in a Bag are these sweet teddies in sleeping bags/papooses.
baby-pod-papoose-3-diff-500-2

I’ve made several different designs, from a sleeping bag for a small, 5 inch teddy, to larger ones with 8 inch soft bears inside.

Here are some of the new sleeping bags ready for Christmas Gifts:

This is the small papoose with a small, fluffy teddy inside:
(These will retail at £5 each – at markets and fayres only)

baby-pod-papoose-coral-500-tiny-2

And then there are sleeping bags for larger teddies, and these are in coral pink and white, turquoise blue and white, lemon and white mix, and pink, white, lemon, and blue multi-colours. They all have an 8 inch teddy bear inside, holding either a baby blue or soft pink snuggle blanket.

Here is a cheeky duo in their matching multi-colour bags.

baby-pod-papoose-mixed-duo-500

And a teddy with a blue snuggle blanket which has a sleeping bag in pretty shades of lemon and blue.

baby-pod-papoose-lemon-blue-500-teddy

Here is a cute soft teddy holding a pink snuggle blanket and sitting on their coral pink mix sleeping bag/papoose.

baby-pod-papoose-coral-500-teddy

I will have several of these sleeping bags/papooses at Christmas Markets (all with a teddy inside of course 🙂 ).

By the way, the larger sleeping bags measure between 12.5 and 12.75 inches in length (sizes depend on particular yarn used) and, as well as taking a teddy bear, these are also large enough for a child to use for a doll or other soft toy – up to around 11 inches in length) for a change.

And I have just added two to our Etsy Shop.

First, a sweet, soft teddy holding a pink snuggle blanket and cozy inside a pink-multi colour sleeping bag. You can see this listing on Etsy here:
Teddy Bear In Papoose, Cute Soft Teddy in Pink Multi-Coloured Sleeping Bag.

baby-pod-papoose-mixed-pink-500

And  you will also find a very cute soft teddy with a baby blue snuggle blanket and a pretty turquoise blue and white sleeping bag/papoose.
You can find this cute teddy in papoose here:
Teddy Bear In Crochet Papoose, Turquoise and White Sleeping Bag.

baby-pod-papoose-blue-500-teddy

So, that’s the first of the new stock this season at Teddy in a bag.

I hope you like it. I’m biased, because I think they are all extremely cute! 🙂

More Than Teddies This September!

I’ve been busy over the summer at Teddy in a Bag with summer markets and school fayres.
But now September is here, it is time to re-stock and to think about Christmas gifts (yes I know it’s a bit early but…  🙂 ).

There will be new Teddy Bags added here over the next couple of months, but in the meantime I’m stocking our Etsy Store (Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store) with all sorts of different items as well as Teddy Bags (and patterns for teddy/toy bags too).

Some of the Teddy Bags In Our Etsy Store

There are already quite a few Teddy bags in the store, including the popular little teddies in hanging cradle swings, teddies in gift sacks, teddies in crochet and cotton shoulder bags, teddies in moses baskets, and more.
And that is just a few of them.

But I’ve also been working hard making Christmas gifts for adults too.

I’ve added some of our store items in the side panel and I thought I would show you a few of them in this post.

There are quite a few shoulder bags. All individual designs and colours and all fully lined.
Plus cotton string market bags to carry in your pocket and use instead of plastic shopping bags.

Bags for sale in our Etsy store

There is a small range of baby blankets and cot blankets in pretty colours and designs, and also a lovely ‘bright sunshine’ snuggle blanket which children love.

As fun home decor for children and adults, we have some pretty wall hangings; some with dear little chubby owls and others with hearts or stars.

Then there is a great range of coaster sets and table sets (doilies with matching coasters).
These have so many different uses – from holding a warm coffee mug, or making an elegant party drinks setting, to making dressing table sets or just to have around the home as pretty decor.

I have also been busy making crochet patterns, mainly to put teddies in at the moment, but no doubt I’ll be making some new patterns soon.

So, as you can see, I’ve been busy.
And there’s more to come as we (like it or not… 🙂 ) move towards Christmas.

But there will also be more teddy bags on these pages very soon.

So please don’t forget to check back and I’ll see you soon 🙂

Summer Fayres and New Stock at Teddy in a Bag

It has been a busy summer so far for Teddy in a Bag.
We have had a great time in the sun at school fayres. Last weekend, we had two great days at Pop Up on the Pier, Southsea, and this coming Saturday, 3rd August, we will be at Castle Fields, Southsea, for the Rowans Hospice Summer Fete (more about that in the next post).

Here is a side view of the stall shared with Little Gifts of Southsea at Pop Up on the Pier.

Teddy in a Bag seaside display

As you can see, it was a little windy but there was so much for all the family to see and do, it was a great event.

In the picture, you may have caught a glimpse of some of the new items for sale at Teddy in a Bag.
I like to make sure that there is always something new and interesting to see and this year there are bunnies as well as teddies on display!

There are tiny crochet baskets, some with a teddy inside and some with a bunny inside and they are extremely cute! And just as important, our Bunny in a Basket and Teddy in a Basket gifts are very reasonably priced, at £2.00 for each basket with Teddy or Bunny inside. so they make lovely gifts and pocket money toys.

Alongside the little baskets, some of the most popular items are our Teddy in a swinging crochet cradle.
They look lovely hanging from a door, from the side of a child’s bed, or holding as a teddy wing.
At £3.50 each, the cradle swings are also a great gift for a child.

But there is loads of stock at Teddy in a Bag for you to choose from.
The picture below shows more of a closeup of just some of the items on display.

We also have adult’s and children’s bags (including eco-friendly cotton shoppers) and children’s snuggle blankets with bright sunshine or elephant centres. And these complement our bags, backpacks, cradles, moses baskets, little baskets and more and in lots of different sizes.

When you visit us at a fayre or market, there is always someone on hand to talk to if you want to ask questions. For instance, there are special bags and teddies which are safe for toddlers, while there are others which are loved by and safe for children of all ages (and adults too!).

You can see some Teddy in a Bag stock at the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, but to see much more and to view stock which is not always for sale online, do try to see us at our next markets.
We’d love to see you there.

And the next post is about exactly that…. our next market!

New Small Blue Bags With Fluffy Teddies

Three of the new blue and cream small crochet bags with fluffy teddies inside:

small-blue-bags-500-2

I have been busy making more of the small bags with a small teddy in the front pocket.
And I thought it would be nice to make some more in blue and cream because they are so pretty.

Well, here are 3 of the new bags, each with a fluffy teddy in the front pocket of course.
They seem very happy teddies too 🙂

small-blue-bags-500-1

These small bags, just like the pink ones, or the cream and sparkle ones, measure approximately 6 inches long by 5.75 inches wide, with comfy shoulder/carry straps which are around 15-17 inches long.
(All measurements are approximate and will vary a little as crochet items always do)

small-blue-bags-500-3

Little fluffy bears are nice and chubby, with moving arms and legs, and measure approximately 5 inches from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet.

small-blue-bags-500-1a

As you can see, the front pocket, being large enough to take a 5 inch chubby teddy, is also suitable for providing extra space for other small items and the bags are roomy inside too.

These little blue and cream bags with teddy bears in will be available at Christmas markets this year (and if I get time to make a few more, may also be on Etsy or Ebay).
Prices of each bag with teddy at markets and fairs is £5.00. If I post some to Etsy, they will cost more, owing to posting, packaging and processing charges.

small-blue-bags-500-4

I think these little bags are so sweet with their teddies inside.
And I hope you like them too.

Teddy Nice and Snug In His Warm Turquoise Basket

Sweet small teddy nice and warm with his soft scarf and matching turquoise basket to sleep in.

baskets-mermaid-turq-1

On my previous post about my Multi Coloured Lilac Baskets With Teddies Inside, I said I was making some turquoise ones as well. Well here they are.

baskets-mermaid-turq-3

This small, 5 inch teddy is wearing a lovely warm scarf in soft turquoise yarn to match his turquoise-mix basket.
He’s quite a fashion icon 🙂

Just like the other baskets in this style, with small, 5 inch teddies inside, the price of these baskets with their teddy is £4.00 each at markets and fairs.

And once I have a few more made, I will post them online in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop too. I hope to update this page when I do so.

In the meantime, if you are in the Portsmouth UK area, please come along to our markets and fairs to see all of our teddies in bags.
We’d love to see you!

Multi Coloured Lilac Baskets With Teddies Inside

Sweet teddy with his lilac multi-coloured basket and matching scarf.

baskets-mermaid-lilac-4

My small crochet baskets with teddies inside are very popular, so I have been adding more colours to the collection.

I’ve already shown you the New Small Teddies in Baskets in Pink shades, and now here are new baskets in lilac and lovely bright multi colours.

baskets-mermaid-lilac-1

The small teddy is wearing a lovely warm lilac scarf to match the lilac shades in his basket, and looks very snug 🙂

All small crochet baskets in this design and with a small, 5 inch, teddy wearing a matching scarf, are priced at £4.00 each at markets and fairs and will soon be posted online too (of course, postage and processing costs will have to be added to online sales).

baskets-mermaid-lilac-3

I am now making some in turquoise multi-colours, so will show them to you too, when they are completed.

You can never have too many teddies in baskets 🙂
