These are the tiniest little teddy bags I have made so far (hence the rather blurred close up pictures – my phone camera doesn’t handle tiny pictures that well!).
I call them ‘Teeny Tiny Baskets‘ and each one contains a tiny teddy which is just under 7cms in length.
These are not for the under threes, because of the small parts, but for older children, and adults, they will make a lovely little present.
Perhaps you could hang them on the Christmas tree? They are about the size of a bauble.
As you can see from one of the pictures, if by chance you want to keep the teddy for yourself, but you still want to use the gift basket, you can always use it as a gift sack and put small items of jewellery inside, or perhaps chocolate coins or similar.
These teeny tiny baskets will be at Christmas fairs only.
They will be priced at £1.50 each, so they make a nice pocket money gift too.
This is one of my latest Teddy in a Bag designs and I’m really pleased with it.
It’s a teddy in a crochet moses basket which has been made so that it can be played with by a toddler or an older child.
The basket is designed so that it has short handles for safety and the basket and matching blanket is made with stitches suitable for tiny hands.
There is a thick mattress inside. The mattress is lined with card, rather than stuck on filling, as an extra safety feature, and the teddy inside is made from soft fabric.
Sizes are approximate, because handmade items do vary slightly, but each moses basket measures approximately 10.5 inches long by 5.5 inches wide and the teddy is 8 inches in length. The basket will take a soft toy or doll up to 10 inches, with a snug fit, so, if the teddy is being cuddled elsewhere, the basket can be used for other special toys as well.
As you can see from the pictures here, the basket is available in three colour schemes:
Pinky peach with a turquoise trim;
Turquoise with a pinky peach trim;
Pink with a cream trim;
and Baby blue with a cream trim.
Moses baskets in all the colours are available in our Etsy shop, and I will have some at Christmas Fairs as well.
Cost of Moses baskets with teddy included:
£12.00 at markets and fairs.
Etsy price = £12.00 plus postage and packing – online sales (to UK only)
I’m really pleased with these little moses baskets with their soft teddy inside and I hope you like them too.
