Little Crochet Pouches Make Ideal Gifts

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

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

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

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 🙂

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.

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.

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)

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
