Cotton Shoulder Bags For Children

Each Cotton Bag Has A Tiny Teddy in the Front Pocket

Most of the Teddy Bags I make are crochet bags, but I do a small range of cotton bags too – all for children.

They are all made with 100 percent cotton fabric and contain interface to ensure that they keep their shape. They are all also double-sided, with two cotton fabrics which contrast but complement each other.

These pretty shoulder bags are from the range I call ‘puff’ style (because they remind me of ‘puff skirts’ ๐Ÿ™‚). And of course, each bag has a tiny teddy sitting comfortably in the front pocket.

Each little teddy bear measures approximately 8 cms (3.5 cms) and has jointed arms and legs.

I’ll show you one of my favourites first:

Elephant Print Cotton Shoulder Bag

Elephant Print Cotton Bag With Tiny Teddy

This pretty shoulder bag is made in elephant print fabric, with a colourful stars pattern on the reverse side.
There is a square pocket on the outside front, which is big enough to hold the tiny white teddy, plus a couple of small keepsakes too :).


So if you love elephants as well as teddies, this one’s for you ๐Ÿ™‚

Little Birds Cotton Shoulder Bag

Next is a very pretty cotton shoulder bag for a child who likes pink and cute birds.
I call it the ‘Little Birds’ bag. It has a sweet pattern with tiny birds in shades of pink and turquoise playing on a light pink background. Reverse side is pink with tiny white polka dots.


And the pocket, also in pink with white polka dots, contains a sweet little brown teddy bear.

Lilac Cotton Shoulder Bag Bag with Polka Dots

And for those children who want a pretty bag for smart occasions, the lilac bag with tiny white polka dots is smart as well as pretty.

The lilac pocket contains a dear little white teddy bear who would appreciate that special occasion too ๐Ÿ™‚


Like the other two bags above, the lilac and polka dots cotton shoulder bag is reversible. This one has a plain lilac reverse side.
