Beginning the Christmas Season

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!

Pink Tones Cotton Bag With Tiny Teddy

Pink Tones Cotton Bag with Tiny Teddy in Pocket

Here is another of our cotton Bags. This one has a pretty pattern with pink and blue tiny birds and the lining (or reverse side) is in pink with white polka dots.
The strong shoulder strap is also in two patterns and of course this bag would not be complete without a tiny teddy in the front pocket.

I try to make each one of our cotton bags a little unique, with a number of different patterns, tones and pocket colours, so you will never be buying one exactly the same as your friend.
Cotton bags are suitable for children over 3 years (and adults too of course).
They are medium size, good quality, crisp cotton, fully lined (see picture below) and are priced at £8.50 each.

I really hope you like our crisp cotton bags. I do 🙂

Lilac Polka Dot Bag with Tiny Teddy

Lila Polka Dot Cotton Reversible Bag with Tiny Teddy

At Teddy in a Bag, we sew as well as crochet and here is one of our cotton bags which I hope you will like.
This is a pretty polka dot cotton bag in lilac with small white polka dots and a plain lilac lining (or reverse side if you prefer).
And in the front pocket is one of our tiny teddies.
If the bag is reversed, the pocket will be a secret pocket inside the bag.
Cotton bags are medium sized, good quality, and suitable for children over 3 years and adults too.
Cotton bags have a strong shoulder strap or can be used as totes if you prefer.
They retail at £8.50 each and will make a present to treasure.

Lilac Shades Tote-Handbag with Tiny Teddy

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

Dark Pink and Cream Tote-Handbag with Tiny Teddy

Dark Pink and Cream Tote Handbag with Tiny Teddy

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.

Tote-Handbag with Tiny Teddy

torquiose-cream-tote-handbag-1
This is one of our popular Tote/Handbag style bags at Teddy in a Bag.

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.
