Hanging Cradle Bags With Teddies Are Now Online

Hanging Cradle Bags With Teddies Are Now Online In These Pretty Colours:

new-cradles-online-1

Since making these little cradle bags for teddies, I have been asked if I would add them to an online store, as well as take them to Christmas Fairs.

So I have made some more in turquoise mix and lilac mix yarn and have posted 2 on Etsy and 2 on Ebay, as between them, these sites cover most craft items and toys.

The prices on both sites are £6.00 per cradle bag with teddy inside (wearing a scarf, of course 🙂 ) and there will be no further cost for postage, packing and processing.

The Etsy listings are:

turq-etsy-thumblilac-etsy-thumb-smlr

Crochet Cradle Toy with A Small Soft Teddy Inside – for the Turquoise mix basket with teddy.

and Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy – for the Lilac mix basket with teddy.

The Ebay listings are:

turq-ebay-thumblilac-ebay-thumb

Toy Crochet Cradle Swing with A Small Soft Teddy Inside – for the Turquoise mix basket with teddy.

and Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy – for the Lilac mix basket with teddy.

Please note: These are not the same teddies and cradles. Each listing is for a different teddy and basket, even though the colour mixes are similar.

I hope you like them 🙂

Childs Teddy Print Cotton Shopper With Teddy

Everyone loves teddies and what could be better than a shopping bag in teddy print with a teddy in the front pocket!

teddy-shopper-1-500

This pretty cotton shopper is ideal for a child to carry lots of toys inside, or if they go to school, it will carry their boooks, or be a roomy lunch bag.

The bag is sewn with double-cotton fabric. On the outside is a cute teddy print and on the inside is a pretty daisy print to match. The daisy print is carried forward into the trimming, handles and long pocket both sides (which is roomy enough for several pencils or coloured pens or more!).

And of course a really nice bonus is the small teddy sitting in the front pocket.
You can see the teddy outside the bag as well. It is a little plush teddy with jointed arms and legs so that it can sit as well as stand.

Bag measures approximately 8.75 inches (22.5 cms) in height (not counting handles) and is 10.75 inches (27.5 cms) wide.
The two handles measure 8 inches (20 cms) [3.5 inches actual carrying depth] each one.

The tiny teddy is 3 inches (7.5 cms) tall.

Although the teddy has a CE mark, I would not recommend leaving the teddy in the bag when giving to children under 3 years old to play with unsupervised, owing to small parts.

This roomy bag is for teddy lovers and it is an ideal present for both girls and boys.

Price of each bag with teddy is £8.00 each at Fairs and Markets and is £11.50 (which includes careful packaging, postage and processing) on the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop.

I hope you love our teddy shopping bags as much as we do!

New Small Teddies In Baskets in Pink

Here are two new small pink baskets with teddies inside.

pink-basket-500-5

I try to make a range of colours for these dear little baskets and so I have just added a new shade of pink called ‘candyfloss’, alongside the pale rose pink.

Together with this new colour, we have rose pink and baby pink, as well as baby blue and dark rose sparkle and cream. You can see some of the other colour baskets here.

But I thought I would show off the new candy floss colour basket (with small teddy with matching scarf of course 🙂 ), and soon to follow will be some new blue shades and maybe lilacs too.

pink-basket-500-2

These little baskets are ideal for small hands to carry and they each contain a 5 inch teddy with room to spare.
They are among our most popular little teddy bags.

pink-basket-500-3

These little baskets with teddy in a scarf are priced at £4.00 each at markets and fairs.
If I get the time I will put a few online as well, but they will cost a little more, owing to postage and packing charges.

You can never have too many teddies in little baskets 🙂

Elephant Print Cotton Tote Bag With Teddy In Pocket

Here is another of the cotton tote bags which are very popular at our markets.

elephant-tote-3-500

This one is in a lovely elephant print (with very cute elephants 🙂 ) and the trim and reversible lining is a beautiful, bright star print.

Of course, each elephant print tote has a tiny teddy in the pocket.
And as all the tiny teddies are jointed, each can sit quite happily outside the bag too 🙂

elephant-tote-2-500

Cotton tote bags measure approximately 9 inches in length (not counting the shoulder strap) by 7.5 inches wide, and the tiny teddy is approximately 3 inches high when standing.

As the tiny teddy is quite small, although the teddy has a cE mark, for safety I recommend that the teddy is not given to under threes to play with unsupervised.

These little bags are priced at £6.50 at Christmas markets or at £9.00 (includes postage, packing and processing costs) when available in our Etsy shop.

Children love them and the bags are so useful too!
