These little crochet cradle bags are quite a novel idea.
Folded down, the bag makes a cradle for the teddy and then, turn the covers the other way and the cradle turns into a sweet little bag with a teddy inside!
Evidently, they are very popular in the US where they are called ‘Basinnet purses’, and children love them. I made some of these from a pattern by a lovely lady called Beverly A. Qualheim (her pattern is on Etsy here at BevsCountryCottage).
I have made several of these little cradle bags for markets (and perhaps for Etsy too) in a variety of colours and will be posting pictures of them over the next few days. And each teddy has its very own crochet blanket to keep it nice and snug 🙂
Each cradle bag complete with small teddy will cost £7.00 at markets and fairs (postage will be added if I add them to my Etsy shop).
These small bags in cream and dark pink have a sweet, fluffy teddy in the front pocket:
I have been busy making more small shoulder bags and putting small teddies in the front pockets. The dark sparkle pink and cream bags, like those I wrote about here, are very popular, but I thought that reversing the colours to have cream with dark sparkle pink as an extra would look great too. And I think just like the others these small bags they look perfect for Christmas.
They also have a new small teddy in the pocket. This is a lovely, fluffy, chubby version of the small, joined bear and I think they are really cute (and certainly cuddly!). Here’s one of them sitting outside the bag to show you 🙂
These small bags with a small teddy in the pretty front pocket will cost £5.00 each at markets and fayres. Purchases online will cost more owing to postage and processing costs.
I think they look lovely and all ready to make sweet Christmas gifts.
Pretty Pink small bags with a teddy in the front pocket:
I’ve already posted a picture of the new, dark pink sparkle bags I am making (and putting small teddies in the front pocket of course).
But I’m also making these small bags in other shades.
Here are examples of the pink shades you will also find these pretty bags in.
Pale rose pink with a cream trim is always a favourite colour (it always reminds me of pink and cream icecream, which is why it might be my favourite 🙂 ).
But pink small bags also come in multi shades, from rose pink and candy pink, through to lilac and cream.
Here are four examples of these pretty bags:
Just like the pink sparkle bags, these small bags, complete with small teddy, are for sale at fairs and markets for £5.00 each (postage and processing is added to the online price).
So, these lovely little bags make an ideal gift which will be very much appreciated!
Pretty little bags all with a tiny teddy in the front pocket.
I’ve already posted an update on the Little Lilac Bags I have been busy making to replenish Teddy in a Bag stock, but also extremely popular in our small bags range are the little bags made with dark pink sparkle yarn and a cream trim.
Of course, just like the lilac bags, these pretty bags are extra popular because they all carry a tiny teddy in the front pocket 🙂
So, I am busy making more of these little bags, ready for Christmas fairs and markets.
Each bag, complete with tiny (3.5 inch) teddy, costs £5.00 to purchase at one of our markets or fairs.
It will cost a little more if we sell them online, owing to postage and processing costs.
But either way, these are well-loved little bags, which will make any child happy when they receive them.
