Brand New Cradle Swings Getting Ready for Christmas

Some of the New Cradle Swings at Teddy in a Bag:

One of most popular items at Teddy in a Bag are the dear little cradle swings with a small teddy inside.

Ever since I began making the ‘teddy cradles’ late last year, they have been loved by fair goers of all ages.

I have also placed some online. You can still see them in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop and again soon on Ebay (But I’ll post an update when that happens).

And this year, there are new colours available in teddy cradles.


We now have lilac, shades of pink, sparkly red, sparkly purple, turquoise, shades of blue, and firm favourites – turquoise mix and lilac mix.


And I’m sure there will be more colours to come 🙂

As always, all the teddies wear a jaunty scarf in a colour to match their cradle.

These little hanging cradles with teddies inside truly make an ideal gift, because they can be hung beside the bed, or desk, carried around with you, simply played with, or, of course, hung as a present on a Christmas tree…. 🙂

At markets and fairs, cradles with a teddy inside remain at the price of £3.50 each.

For online prices, and prices of all Teddy in a Bag items, please see the Teddy in a Bag Prices page for more details.

There will be much more to come in updates and new items in the run up to Christmas.


So don’t forget to check us out here at Teddy in a Bag and drop into one of our markets if you get the chance 🙂

Update:
You can now get one of these pretty swinging cradles even if you cannot attend one of the Teddy in a Bag Markets, because they are…

Sneak Peak at Teddy in a Bag Market Displays

Just one example of the lovely items you can see at the Teddy in a Bag tables at fairs and markets.

If you have yet to have the pleasure of meeting Teddy in a Bag at a table top sale or craft fair, here are a couple of pictures taken at the table top sale I attended this Saturday.

(Background of the pictures has been amended by the way – it was a very busy sale and it would not have been fair to include customers in the pictures when they hadn’t given their permission).

Not all the items we sell can be seen in the displays shown here, but I always aim to have the following on display:

  • Teddies in a wide range of shoulder bags,
  • Teddies in tote bags,
  • Teddies in backpacks,
  • Teddies in handbags,
  • Teddies in moses baskets,
  • Teddies in gift baskets,
  • Teddies in sleeping bags,
  • Teddies in cradles,
  • Teddies in swings,
  • Tiny teddies and bunnies in tiny baskets,
  • Teddies in gift sacks,
  • Teddies in purses,
  • Micro teddies in gift bags…

Plus a range of handmade gifts, including:

  • Elephant snuggles,
  • Sunshine snuggles,
  • Phone bags,
  • Purses,
  • Pouches/Clutch bags
  • Pencil cases with coloured pencils inside
  • A small range of children’s decorative shoulder bags,
  • A small range of women’s decorative shoulder bags,
  • Ornate market bags…

(and other items which I will remember after typing this 🙂 )

Soon I will be posting an up to date list of Christmas Fairs and Markets we will be attending in 2019.
And now you’ve seen what our indoor displays look like (together with our outdoor displays of course), you will know how best to look out for us over the coming months 🙂

In any case, you can look out for the Teddy in a Bag distinctive Logo, which, as you can see from the picture above, is always at the top of our side display.

See Teddy in a Bag at St Margarets Hall This Saturday

Teddy in a Bag is pleased to announce that we will be at the St Margarets Table Top Sale this Saturday, 28th September, 2019.

table-top-sale-st-margarets-689-widthThe Table Top Sale will be open from 1pm to 3pm.

The venue is St Margarets Church Hall, Highland Road, Southsea, PO4 9DD.

This is a great sale, with Free Entry to see lots of different tables and enjoy some refreshments. Just the thing for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon.

And the sale is in aid of helping the local community.

It’s always a pleasure to attend events which help good causes, so I’m making sure I will have some new stock on display, alongside all the favourites.

689-setting-out-new-stock-1a689

You can see from the picture above some of the lines I will be showing:

  • Teeny tiny baskets with tiny teddies and bunnies inside;
  • Teddies in swinging cradles; moses baskets, teddy cradles, small children’s baskets, backpacks, and shoulder bags, and pretty purses – all with a teddy inside.
  • And those brand new Decorative Baskets with a happy Teddy snuggled up inside which I featured in my previous post.
  • Then there are elephant ‘snuggle blankets’, and ‘sunshine’ snuggles.
  • There are some items for adults and teenagers too – the large crochet shopper on the right of the picture is just one example of this range.
  • And lots more besides from our original range.

So, I think you’ll agree that Teddy in a Bag will have a great range there 🙂

I do hope you will pop in to the St Margaret’s Table Top Sale this Saturday, and do please come over to say hello to us. That would be great.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Teddy in a Gift Basket the Ideal Present!

Teddy in a Gift Basket New To Teddy In A Bag:

basket-completed-3a-with-teddy-1

I have some lovely teddies holding red roses and I felt that they needed a special basket to sit in, so I am making them special Gift Baskets.

So far there is a Christmas colours gift basket and a Shades of turquoise gift basket and more to come.

basket-completed-8-two-made-2

The gift baskets have a crochet cover in pretty colours, with a shell-edged finish in white, which looks like snow on a roof edge.
Inside the baskets are soft cotton fabric cushions and a lovely, soft bolster to support the teddy in comfort :).

These are bigger teddies than usual, measuring 20cms x 19cms when seated, and they fit just right in the baskets.

However, when the teddies are taken out to play with, the baskets can be used to keep other items on the padded interior – perhaps jewellery or other toys, or keepsakes.

Or, remove the ‘teddy seating area’ and the baskets become very nice storage baskets for larger toys and keepsakes.

As you can tell, I’m very pleased with these teddies in gift baskets and they will be appearing at markets and fairs between now and Christmas.

However… you may like this idea and want to make a gift basket yourself. And to help, I have written a free pattern/tutorial on how to make your own special gift basket.

You can find it either on our crafts blog,  Elephant Sun Dog on this page:
Decorative Gift Basket – Free Crochet and Sewing Pattern.

Or you can download a pdf copy of the pattern for free from my pattern shop on Ravelry on this page:
Decorative Gift Basket by Silvi Veale

And you never know, I might just have started a whole new idea for upcoming Christmas gifts which you can all join in with 🙂

And it would be great to see you soon at our upcoming fairs and markets with more Teddy Bags.

Cute Teddies Inside Pretty Moses Baskets

Small Teddy swaddled in a blanket inside a pretty moses basket.
small-moses-basket-and-teddy-pink-mix-1

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!

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-blue-mix-2

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 🙂

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-pink-mix-8

I have placed one of these little moses baskets and teddy on our Etsy shop.
You can see it here:
Teddy Bear in a Crochet Moses Basket, in Soft Swaddle Blanket.

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.
