Teddies in Sleeping Bags Join Teddy In A Bag!

Brand new to Teddy in a Bag are these sweet teddies in sleeping bags/papooses.

I’ve made several different designs, from a sleeping bag for a small, 5 inch teddy, to larger ones with 8 inch soft bears inside.

Here are some of the new sleeping bags ready for Christmas Gifts:

This is the small papoose with a small, fluffy teddy inside:
(These will retail at Β£5 each – at markets and fayres only)

And then there are sleeping bags for larger teddies, and these are in coral pink and white, turquoise blue and white, lemon and white mix, and pink, white, lemon, and blue multi-colours. They all have an 8 inch teddy bear inside, holding either a baby blue or soft pink snuggle blanket.

Here is a cheeky duo in their matching multi-colour bags.

And a teddy with a blue snuggle blanket which has a sleeping bag in pretty shades of lemon and blue.

Here is a cute soft teddy holding a pink snuggle blanket and sitting on their coral pink mix sleeping bag/papoose.

I will have several of these sleeping bags/papooses at Christmas Markets (all with a teddy inside of course πŸ™‚ ).

By the way, the larger sleeping bags measure between 12.5 and 12.75 inches in length (sizes depend on particular yarn used) and, as well as taking a teddy bear, these are also large enough for a child to use for a doll or other soft toy – up to around 11 inches in length) for a change.

And I have just added two to our Etsy Shop.

First, a sweet, soft teddy holding a pink snuggle blanket and cozy inside a pink-multi colour sleeping bag. You can see this listing on Etsy here:
Teddy Bear In Papoose, Cute Soft Teddy in Pink Multi-Coloured Sleeping Bag.

AndΒ  you will also find a very cute soft teddy with a baby blue snuggle blanket and a pretty turquoise blue and white sleeping bag/papoose.
You can find this cute teddy in papoose here:
Teddy Bear In Crochet Papoose, Turquoise and White Sleeping Bag.

So, that’s the first of the new stock this season at Teddy in a bag.

I hope you like it. I’m biased, because I think they are all extremely cute! πŸ™‚

More Than Teddies This September!

I’ve been busy over the summer at Teddy in a Bag with summer markets and school fayres.
But now September is here, it is time to re-stock and to think about Christmas gifts (yes I know it’s a bit early but…Β  πŸ™‚ ).

There will be new Teddy Bags added here over the next couple of months, but in the meantime I’m stocking our Etsy Store (Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store) with all sorts of different items as well as Teddy Bags (and patterns for teddy/toy bags too).

There are already quite a few Teddy bags in the store, including the popular little teddies in hanging cradle swings, teddies in gift sacks, teddies in crochet and cotton shoulder bags, teddies in moses baskets, and more.
And that is just a few of them.

But I’ve also been working hard making Christmas gifts for adults too.

I’ve added some of our store items in the side panel and I thought I would show you a few of them in this post.

There are quite a few shoulder bags. All individual designs and colours and all fully lined.
Plus cotton string market bags to carry in your pocket and use instead of plastic shopping bags.

There is a small range of baby blankets and cot blankets in pretty colours and designs, and also a lovely ‘bright sunshine’ snuggle blanket which children love.

As fun home decor for children and adults, we have some pretty wall hangings; some with dear little chubby owls and others with hearts or stars.

Then there is a great range of coaster sets and table sets (doilies with matching coasters).
These have so many different uses – from holding a warm coffee mug, or making an elegant party drinks setting, to making dressing table sets or just to have around the home as pretty decor.

I have also been busy making crochet patterns, mainly to put teddies in at the moment, but no doubt I’ll be making some new patterns soon.

If you would like to have a look at the items shown above and other handmade items we have for sale in our Etsy Store, it would be great if you dropped in to check it out.

You can visit us here:Β  Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store.

So, as you can see, I’ve been busy.
And there’s more to come as we (like it or not… πŸ™‚ ) move towards Christmas.

But there will also be more teddy bags on these pages very soon.

So please don’t forget to check back and I’ll see you soon πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Just like the other baskets in this style, with small, 5 inch teddies inside, the price of these baskets with their teddy is Β£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!
