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.

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!
