New Crochet Shoulder Bags This Christmas Season

I have added extra colours to our popular shoulder bag range.

three-new-bags-600

The Teddy in a Bag small shoulder bags with a fluffy white teddy in the large front pocket are popular Christmas gifts each year.

I’m always looking for new colours in crochet yarn to make these little bags, while keeping the most popular colours also.

Dark Pink sparkle Small Shoulder Bag with Teddy

So this year, as well as our dark pink sparkle and cream small bags (very festive small bags which are great for Christmas in particular),

cream-and-dp-sparkle-600-1
Cream and dark pink sparkle small bag and teddy bear

and the always-popular rose pink and cream bags,

this year I have added new colours to the Teddy in a Bag range

I’ve already shown you the bright pink and white and the baby blue and cream shoulder bags,

baby-blue-and-cream-1

but I’ve now added a light turquoise and cream selection too.

turquoise-and-cream-2
Light turquoise and cream small shoulder bag and fluffy teddy bear

These small shoulder bags are great for children of all ages over 3 years. They have a deep front pocket as well as lots of room inside.
And everyone loves the fluffy teddy bears ๐Ÿงธ

At our fairs and markets running up to Christmas, these small bags, with a fluffy teddy bear in the front pocket, will retail at ยฃ5.00 each, so they make a great present which will be much appreciated and useful at the same time.

And with a lovely choice of colours, I think you will find at least one colour set to suit the small person you have in mind ๐Ÿ˜€.

Looking forward to seeing you this Christmas Season ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿงธ

Teddy in a Bag Christmas Fairs List for 2019

Teddy in a Bag now has a list of Christmas Fairs we are doing this November and December.

christmas-fairs-2019-t-in-bag-625

To see the full list, click on the following link: Teddy in a Bag at Christmas Fairs, or you can click on the link at the top of the right hand sidebar.

I’ve kept the list on the linked page simple, with mainly words and few images, so that it is print friendly.
So, if you want to keep the list to check on dates, you can either copy and paste it into Word or similar, or paste the url of our Christmas Fairs page into Print Friendly and download a pdf.

All the bags, beds and baskets shown here on Teddy in a Bag will be for sale at our markets and fairs, plus a few extras, including purses and bags for adults and other children’s gifts too.

The dates given on the Teddy in a Bag Christmas Fairs list are now confirmed, but there may be more to come later.

Just to give you a quick run down of fairs you will find there:

Our first Christmas Fair takes place this coming Saturday, 23rd November.
It’s the Salvation Army Christmas Fair which we do each year.
It’s a great beginning to the Christmas season. It’s a lovely, friendly fair, held in a very good cause, and I always look forward to this one.

salvation-army-1

Then there are two fairs the following week – Portsmouth Grammar Junior School Christmas Fair on Friday 29th November and Love Baffins Christmas Market on Saturday 30th November.

love-baffins-2019-625
These are both big fairs where there will be lots of stalls and loads of ideas for Christmas presents (and hopefully you will come and see Teddy in a Bag there too ๐Ÿ˜€ ).

We attend two fairs again the following week:
St Judes School Christmas Fayre on Friday 6th December and St Swithunโ€™s School Christmas Fair on Saturday 7th December.
These are school fairs which are open to friends, family and anyone who wants to share Christmas with the school children and their teachers and parents and enjoy a carol or two as well.
Great fun!

Then Teddy in a bag will be very busy the following weekend.
For three daysFriday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of December, you will find Teddy in a bag at our own stall at Tesco, Fratton Park (The Pompey Centre), Portsmouth.
We will be in the foyer each day from 10am to 4pm alongside other craft and art stalls with lots to interest you for Christmas.

tesco-fayre-2019-625-1
This is part of Tesco Fratton Park’s community engagement events and all Tesco profits from the craft market will be donated to local charities.

Just to add that Little Gifts of Southsea will also be at all of these events, often at an adjoining stall.
Little Gifts of Southsea sells Jewellery, Christmas Decorations, Keyrings, Handmade ornaments and much more, plus holds a lucky dip at School Fairs, so is well worth a visit too ๐Ÿ˜€ (you can also check out some of their stock on this page here: Sister Site Little Gifts of Southsea).

So that’s the confirmed list so far.
I really hope to see you at one or more of these events.
And please feel free to ask questions or just stop by for a chat.
It will be very much appreciated.

Also I must mention. Fair and market prices of Teddy in a Bag items are very reasonable. I often bring new extra items on the day, but if you want to check out the prices I charge at fairs for regular stock, then do see the Teddy in a Bag Prices page.

Anyway, I will post each fair again a day or two before it occurs.
But don’t forget that you can find the full list and times on this page:

Micro Teddies in Organza Bags Fantastic Stocking Fillers!

Very tiny little teddies in gift bags ready for Christmas.

micro-patchwork-selections-620-1

If you are looking for the sweetest stocking fillers, then go no further.
These micro teddy bears will fit the bill for almost all ages!

At an average height of 4.5 cms, but still with moveable arms and legs, these little teddy bears take cuteness to a whole new level ๐Ÿ™‚

Please Note: pictures in this post may make the teddies appear larger than they are. 4.5 cms is very tiny but can look quite huge in an up close camera shot!

Also Please Note: Owing to their small size, micro teddy bears are not recommended as a present to children under 36 months.

But back to these lovely little micro teddies:

micro-patchwork-1
A selection of some of these dear little micro bears

Each little teddy is an individual. They are all made with patterned fabric: gingham, floral, stripes, spots, sparkle, burberry, and more!

Patterns on the teddy bears are made up of lots of different colours too: pink, blue, black, white, beige, brown, green, grey, red, and more!

And each little teddy bear comes in a small (9cm x 7cm) organza gift bag which has a silver hearts pattern and is tied with silky white ribbon.

micro-patchwork-4

Ideal as a surprise gift to add to the Christmas stocking, or to hang on the Christmas tree, you really would be hard pressed to find anyone who wouldn’t appreciate one of these as a gift.

Teddies and Bunnies in Tiny Baskets For Sale Online

Tiny Teddies and Tiny Bunnies In Tiny Baskets ๐Ÿ™‚

Teddies and Bunnies in Teeny Tiny Baskets are very popular at fairs and markets, so I thought I would share a selection here as well.

teddies-on-christmas-tree
Teddies in Tiny Baskets on a small Christmas Tree

And, as you can see from the picture above, which is from Christmas last year (with just teddy bears in baskets), they make great Christmas tree presents ๐Ÿ™‚

You will be able to see a large selection of tiny teddies and bunnies in their little baskets if you visit Teddy in a Bag at this year’s Christmas Fairs.

But I have saved a very good selection for online sales too.

bunny-selection-1-540
A few from the large bunny in a basket selection

Every single teeny tiny basket is different, so I have sorted them into the following categories:

  • All shades of purple and lilac.
  • All shades of pink to red.
  • All shades of blue and green.
  • Shades of cream with different colour edgings.
teddy-selection-1-540

As you can see from the pictures, shade ranges have a variety within them also, but they are all very pretty.

Teddies vary too – there are white, tan and brown tiny teddy bears.

Tiny 7 cm Teddy bears

Bunnies are all white with pink ears.

tiny-bunnies-1
Tiny 7.5 cm Bunnies

And they are all cute ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฐ

A note on measurements:

Tiny Baskets:

  • Tiny Baskets vary a little in size according to yarn used, but measure approximately 6.5 cms in height and in width (laid flat).
  • Basket handles measure approximately 11.5 cms.

Teddies:

  • Teddies vary a little in size, but measure approximately 7 cms from top of head to bottom of feet.
  • Teddies have jointed arms and legs.

Bunnies:

  • Bunnies measure approximately 7.5 cms from tips of ears to bottom of feet.
  • Bunnies have jointed arms and legs.

I must, however, let you know that I do not recommend these little gifts for children under 3 years old. This is because of small parts.

So please remember this when choosing the recipient of your gift. And children over 4 appreciate them much more anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰.
