Teddy Nice and Snug In His Warm Turquoise Basket

Sweet small teddy nice and warm with his soft scarf and matching turquoise basket to sleep in.

baskets-mermaid-turq-1

On my previous post about my Multi Coloured Lilac Baskets With Teddies Inside, I said I was making some turquoise ones as well. Well here they are.

baskets-mermaid-turq-3

This small, 5 inch teddy is wearing a lovely warm scarf in soft turquoise yarn to match his turquoise-mix basket.
He’s quite a fashion icon 🙂

Just like the other baskets in this style, with small, 5 inch teddies inside, the price of these baskets with their teddy is £4.00 each at markets and fairs.

And once I have a few more made, I will post them online in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop too. I hope to update this page when I do so.

In the meantime, if you are in the Portsmouth UK area, please come along to our markets and fairs to see all of our teddies in bags.
We’d love to see you!

Multi Coloured Lilac Baskets With Teddies Inside

Sweet teddy with his lilac multi-coloured basket and matching scarf.

baskets-mermaid-lilac-4

My small crochet baskets with teddies inside are very popular, so I have been adding more colours to the collection.

I’ve already shown you the New Small Teddies in Baskets in Pink shades, and now here are new baskets in lilac and lovely bright multi colours.

baskets-mermaid-lilac-1

The small teddy is wearing a lovely warm lilac scarf to match the lilac shades in his basket, and looks very snug 🙂

All small crochet baskets in this design and with a small, 5 inch, teddy wearing a matching scarf, are priced at £4.00 each at markets and fairs and will soon be posted online too (of course, postage and processing costs will have to be added to online sales).

baskets-mermaid-lilac-3

I am now making some in turquoise multi-colours, so will show them to you too, when they are completed.

You can never have too many teddies in baskets 🙂

New Small Teddies In Baskets in Pink

Here are two new small pink baskets with teddies inside.

pink-basket-500-5

I try to make a range of colours for these dear little baskets and so I have just added a new shade of pink called ‘candyfloss’, alongside the pale rose pink.

Together with this new colour, we have rose pink and baby pink, as well as baby blue and dark rose sparkle and cream. You can see some of the other colour baskets here.

But I thought I would show off the new candy floss colour basket (with small teddy with matching scarf of course 🙂 ), and soon to follow will be some new blue shades and maybe lilacs too.

pink-basket-500-2

These little baskets are ideal for small hands to carry and they each contain a 5 inch teddy with room to spare.
They are among our most popular little teddy bags.

pink-basket-500-3

These little baskets with teddy in a scarf are priced at £4.00 each at markets and fairs.
If I get the time I will put a few online as well, but they will cost a little more, owing to postage and packing charges.

pink-basket-500-4

You can never have too many teddies in little baskets 🙂

New Lilac Crochet Backpack with Small Teddy

Another brand new backpack! This one is in a lovely shade of lilac with a silky lining inside the bag and in the front pocket.

new-lilac-backpack-500-teddy-a1

And of course it comes with a small teddy snuggled down in the roomy front pocket.

This is one of a range of backpacks you will see at our Christmas fairs and markets.
I have them in lilac, baby blue, pink and Christmas red and cream.

Because they are handmade crochet items, backpacks do vary in size a little, but this one is pretty average and measures 9.5 inches in length and 7.5 inches in width (and will stretch a little more when filled).

new-lilac-backpack-500-back
Shoulder straps are each 14 inches long but will stretch a little to fit a child’s shoulders.

All backpacks are lined – inside the bag and in the front pocket.

And not forgetting the teddy. Teddies in backpacks are all 5 inch teddies with moveable arms and legs, so they can sit as well as stand (and lie down 🙂 ).

new-lilac-backpack-500-teddy-2

Medium backpacks like this are suitable for most children.
They are priced at £8.00 at fairs and markets. When posted to our Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, they will cost £8.00 plus postage and packing and processing.

new-lilac-backpack-500-1

I hope you like this lovely lilac backpack.
It’s a lovely, roomy little bag and with the teddy and just right for a lovely gift!

Crochet Cradle Bag In Pink with Teddy Inside

Pretty Pink Cradle Bag with a Sweet Small Teddy Snuggled Inside:

pink-basinnette-2

When I made my post about the Pretty Peach Cradle Bag with Teddy, you may have noticed a pink cradle bag in the last picture.

Well here it is. I couldn’t leave out the pink and cream version of this lovely small bag.

Here is the cradle on its own (as you can see, it can be used for any soft toy or doll of around 5 inches in length).

pink-basinnette-4

And here it is with the teddy which will be inside.

pink-basinnette-1

As always, the small teddy inside is wrapped in its own crochet blanket and turn the covers out and up and you have a dear little drawstring bag.

pink-basinnette-5

Mustn’t forget to let the teddy peek out now and again though 🙂

pink-basinnette-3

Prices for all the cradle bags with a small teddy inside are £7.00 each when purchased at Fairs or Markets (but the cost of postage and processing fees will be added when purchased from Etsy).

mixed-basinettes-4a

These are definitely a lovely present for a child who wants a gift to treasure!

Hanging Cradle Bags With Teddy Inside

These sweet little cradle nesting bags are new to Teddy In a Bag.

2-hanging-nest-for-teddy-turq-2-tog

These little hanging cradles make great gifts.
In a range of pretty colours and all with a small, soft teddy sitting comfortably inside, they will delight many children.

2-hanging-nest-for-teddy-lilac-mix-1a

And the teddy has a scarf to keep them warm in cold weather 🙂

You could hang these little cradles from a bedroom door, or next to a bed, or carry them around with the teddy inside. The hanging tag is just right to carry too and to act as a gentle swing for the small teddy.

2-hanging-nest-for-teddy-lilac-violet-2-nests-1

The cradles come in lovely colours of baby blue, pretty pinks, lilac, and mixes of lilac and turquoise.
And as you can see, each teddy has a scarf to match their cradle.

2-hanging-nest-for-teddy-mixed-6

These little cradles with teddies will be at Christmas fairs and markets over the next few weeks, and after the weekend, I should have made enough to put on Etsy too.

2-hanging-nest-for-teddy-pinks

Price of each cradle with teddy inside is £3.50 at markets and fairs.
I have now added two of the cradles with teddies in to our Elephant Sun Dog Etsy shop.
The price on Etsy is £6.00 inclusive to include postage, packing and processing.

I will post more pictures in the coming days, and I’m sure you will love these little cradles and their teddies as much as we do.

Little Cotton Bag in Daisies and Flamingoes

This sweet little bag is in daisies and flamingoes cotton prints and it has a small teddy wrapped up in a crochet blanket inside.

daisies-and-flamingoes-1-500-1

I’ve posted about these particular little bags before. They are all made in cotton and are reversible too. Here is one of them from last year to show you another style : Small Cotton bag In Pathwork Design With Small Teddy

The little bags are very popular with children (and adults too!), because they not only work as a carry bag for the sleeping teddy (or another soft toy if the child prefers), but because they come in lots of pretty cotton prints in all colours, so there are many to choose from.

daisies-and-flamingoes-1a-500-1

And what makes them extra special, is that each bag has a small, 5 inch teddy inside, wrapped up in its own crochet blanket.

daisies-and-flamingoes-3-500-1

Like all handmade items, the bags do vary a little in size.
This one measures 6 inches (15 cms) in length by 9 inches (23 cms) in width at the base.
Shoulder strap is 19 inches (48 cms) long.

This little bag in daisies and flamingo print is in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop as I type this. I will post more there for those who cannot make it to our Christmas Fairs. The bags are all in different colour cottons. No little bag is exactly the same.

On Etsy, the little bags with teddy inside retail at £9.00 each. This price includes packaging, postage and processing.

I also sell these dear little bags and teddies at Markets and Fairs, where, for now, the price will remain at £6.00 per bag with teddy.

daisies-and-flamingoes-2-500-1

These bags are an ideal bag for a child who would like to use it as a carry case for the teddy, or other soft toys or dolls.

The bag is surprisingly roomy too, so the teddy could have some other small toys to join him inside 🙂

I will post some more of these little cotton bags soon, to show you the many variations we have in stock.
