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

small-pouches-4-from-front-and-teddies-1-500

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 πŸ™‚

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 – Β£3 each.
Pouch with tiny teddy inside – Β£3.50 each.

I would guess that these little crochet pouches would make ideal stocking fillers for Christmas too πŸ™‚

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…Β  πŸ™‚ ).

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.

So, as you can see, I’ve been busy.
And there’s more to come as we (like it or not… πŸ™‚ ) move towards Christmas.

But there will also be more teddy bags on these pages very soon.

So please don’t forget to check back and I’ll see you soon πŸ™‚

Micro Teddies in Gift Bags

The tiniest teddies you are likely to see this Christmas!

micro-teddies-1

I make bags for teddies of several different sizes, but now I’m introducing to you the tiniest teddies you are likely to find in a gift bag πŸ™‚

These micro teddies have an average height of 3.5 cms (1.5 inches!), so they really are micro tiny!

They are available at fairs and markets only.

They come in a range of colours (and some are patchwork too) and a range of pretty gift bags.

Even though they are so, so tiny, these micro teddies still have jointed arms and legs, so you can move them around.

These are not suitable for small children, owing to their micro size, but for anyone over three, they make a lovely little gift for the Christmas tree or to slip inside a Christmas stocking as a surprise.

My little micro teddies in gift bags are priced at Β£1.00 each, so they make great pocket money toys for the over threes too!

Aren’t they sweet? πŸ™‚

Rainbow Crochet Gift Sacks With Tiny Teddy

Pretty rainbow gifts sacks – all with a tiny teddy inside!

I started making these little crochet gift sacks towards the end of the Christmas season last year and they were very well-liked.

Each little gift sack is approximately 3.5 inches (9cms) wide by 4 inches 10 cms) long and stretches a little to take some nice gifts. So, they are ideal as stocking fillers.

However, because every bag I make comes with a teddy, I of course put a tiny, 7.5 cm teddy in each sack and I must admit, they are very well-loved!

The rainbow yarn used to make these little gift sacks makes them lovely and bright and suitable for a gift any time of the year.

At fairs and markets, these little gift sacks with teddy inside will cost Β£2.50 each (they will cost a little more online to allow for shipping and processing costs).

So they make a lovely, very reasonably-priced stocking filler or just a special little gift!
