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!
Another of our popular medium-sized bags is our Tote/Handbag.
The bags are hard wearing and fully lined and each has a front pocket with a tiny teddy nestled inside.
This one is in lilac and purple and is nice and bright and useful for everything from carrying toys to carrying pencils, pens and other stationary, or, for an older teddy lover, more grown up items.
The tote bag with tiny teddy is suitable for all ages over three years old.
Tote/handbags with tiny teddy retail at £8.00 each
Pink is a very popular colour in our small bags, so I decided to add a new colour – candy pink.
This small bag is a bright, pretty colour in plain candy pink, with a multi print pocket almost the length of the bag so that it takes a 5 inch small teddy with room to spare.
And just to demonstrate, here are the pictures of small teddy inside and outside the bag.
Small bags can be used as shoulder bags for a child or as handbags.
They are for sale, including the small teddy, at £5.00 each.
Here is another of our satchel bags. This one is in lilac multi-colours which are very pretty and eye-catching.
The satchel-style handbag is fully lined, with space for a number of items.
It has toggle fastening tightly attached for safety.
In the front pocket is one of our tiny teddies sleeping peacefully 🙂
The satchel bag with tiny teddy is a medium-sized bag and ideal for children over 3 years and for anyone else who wants an eye-catching bag with a tiny teddy!
Satchel bags retail at £7.00 each.
Here is another of our classic tote/handbags. This one is in a lovely shade of dark pink (which is almost red but not quite).
This is a medium sized bag which will make a lovely gift for a child over three, a teenager, or an adult who wants something cute for days or evenings.
The tote is fully lined and sturdy to take a variety of contents.
And of course in the front pocket sleeps a tiny teddy 🙂
Our tote/handbags come in a range of colours and can be purchased for £8.00 each.
These are well-made, sturdy bags which are fully-lined and each have a pocket on the front containing a tiny teddy.
These are among our medium-sized bags and are ideal for children from age 3 upwards and for adults who want something different and useful.
Most of my bags are made from my own-designed patterns, but this classy little tote is made (with slight alterations to design additions) from a pattern by KerryJayneDesigns on Etsy and I can highly recommend Kerry Jayne for her unique and easy-to-follow patterns.
This bag is in turquoise and cream, but comes in a range of colours and can be purchased from the stall for £8.00.
