Another brand new backpack! This one is in a lovely shade of lilac with a silky lining inside the bag and in the front pocket.
And of course it comes with a small teddy snuggled down in the roomy front pocket.
This is one of a range of backpacks you will see at our Christmas fairs and markets.
I have them in lilac, baby blue, pink and Christmas red and cream.
Because they are handmade crochet items, backpacks do vary in size a little, but this one is pretty average and measures 9.5 inches in length and 7.5 inches in width (and will stretch a little more when filled).
Shoulder straps are each 14 inches long but will stretch a little to fit a child’s shoulders.
All backpacks are lined – inside the bag and in the front pocket.
And not forgetting the teddy. Teddies in backpacks are all 5 inch teddies with moveable arms and legs, so they can sit as well as stand (and lie down 🙂 ).
Medium backpacks like this are suitable for most children.
They are priced at £8.00 at fairs and markets. When posted to our Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, they will cost £8.00 plus postage and packing and processing.
I hope you like this lovely lilac backpack.
It’s a lovely, roomy little bag and with the teddy and just right for a lovely gift!
Backpacks make a gift which is useful as well as pretty and our crochet backpacks not only come in lovely colours, but of course every one has a small teddy in the front pocket.
Our backpacks are made in light rose pink (like the backpack here), baby blue, lilac, or red (a lovely colour for Christmas).
All backpacks have a cream trim and full cotton or silk lining to match the yarn colour used.
They have lots of room inside to carry toys, school books, or even to act as a pretty lunch bag, and the pocket is not only big enough to carry a 5 inch teddy, it is also roomy enough to take other items if you prefer.
At fairs and markets, each backpack with teddy will cost £8.00.
For anyone who wants to purchase one of these lovely backpacks, but cannot get to our fairs or markets in the Portsmouth area, I will also be adding them to the Etsy shop soon, but there will be an additional charge of £2.95 for postage, packing and processing when purchased there.
I have been very busy over the summer, attending craft fairs and, of course, making new bags for teddies.
This picture is just a few of the new teddy bags I have made. And over the next few days, I will be sharing more.
There are some old favourites and some new designs as well. All made with love and very reasonably priced too.
Other news is that I now share an Etsy shop, called Elephant Sun Dog on Etsy, with my daughter, Crystal, who runs Little Gifts of Southsea.
So, please have a look if you have the time. You can see some of the other items I make, as well as Teddy Bags (although there are more of those at the moment 🙂 ).
We also run a shared blog called Elephant Sun Dog, where we talk about our craft makes and share crochet patterns too. So crafters might well find something they like there.
But in the meantime, I will take some more pictures of the new Teddy in a Bag stock and tell you more about it.
And hopefully we will then be all ready for Christmas! 🙂
I have been very busy lately, making new bags for Christmas Fayres, so updates have been quiet. You can actually see some of the bags I have made recently on the Teddy in a Bag Instagram feed, posted in the sidebar here as well.
But to keep you updated, here is a picture of the Teddy in a Bag display at the Salvation Army Christmas Fayre, this last Saturday. As you can see, there are plenty of bags, all different sizes, some crochet and some cotton and many in Christmas colours (and all with teddies in of course). The elephant print bags are particularly popular (elephants and teddies, what more could you want! 😉 ) and I have found a nice range of cotton fabric to make very pretty bags for Christmas gifts.
The next Christmas Fayre that Teddy in a Bag has a stall at is this coming Saturday (25th November), at the Love Baffins Fayre, in Tangiers Road, Portsmouth, so I’d better get back to making more bags right now!
As Christmas is not too far away, I thought it would be nice to make some very ‘Christmasy’ bags and the lovely red in this child’s backpack is not only festive, but is nice and bright as well.
As with our other crochet backpacks, the red backpack comes with a small teddy in the roomy front pocket.
The backpack is fully lined and has room for all those special items.
The toggle fastening is tightly sewn to prevent mishaps and the small-sized (5 inch) teddy carries the CE mark and is suitable for all ages.
So, if you know a child who would like a very special Christmas gift, I’m sure they would love this Teddy in a bright red Backpack.
All of our backpacks in this style are priced at £8.00 each.
Although we have many different colours in our Teddy in a Bag designs, pink is a a very popular colour, so here we have the Pink Backpack.
In pale rose pink with light cream edging and a pretty white toggle, the pink backpack will make an ideal gift for any child (or an adult who loves pink and wants a small backpack for special occasions).
The backpack is fully lined, with back straps, and of course it comes with a small teddy in the front pocket.
Like all of our current children’s backpacks, the pink backpack retails at £8.00
Here is another of our children’s backpacks.
This one is in lilac with a cream trim.
Toggle for closure is sewn on very tightly for safety and the backpack is fully lined.
And of course it comes with a small teddy in the front pocket.
Pictures show the 5 inch teddy inside and outside the pocket, so that you can see the size of the backpack, which is ideal for a child.
Backpacks are for sale at £8.00 each.
And there is plenty of room inside for all those essential items 🙂
