See Teddy in a Bag at St Margarets Hall This Saturday

Teddy in a Bag is pleased to announce that we will be at the St Margarets Table Top Sale this Saturday, 28th September, 2019.

table-top-sale-st-margarets-689-widthThe Table Top Sale will be open from 1pm to 3pm.

The venue is St Margarets Church Hall, Highland Road, Southsea, PO4 9DD.

This is a great sale, with Free Entry to see lots of different tables and enjoy some refreshments. Just the thing for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon.

And the sale is in aid of helping the local community.

It’s always a pleasure to attend events which help good causes, so I’m making sure I will have some new stock on display, alongside all the favourites.

You can see from the picture above some of the lines I will be showing:

  • Teeny tiny baskets with tiny teddies and bunnies inside;
  • Teddies in swinging cradles; moses baskets, teddy cradles, small children’s baskets, backpacks, and shoulder bags, and pretty purses – all with a teddy inside.
  • And those brand new Decorative Baskets with a happy Teddy snuggled up inside which I featured in my previous post.
  • Then there are elephant ‘snuggle blankets’, and ‘sunshine’ snuggles.
  • There are some items for adults and teenagers too – the large crochet shopper on the right of the picture is just one example of this range.
  • And lots more besides from our original range.

So, I think you’ll agree that Teddy in a Bag will have a great range there πŸ™‚

I do hope you will pop in to the St Margaret’s Table Top Sale this Saturday, and do please come over to say hello to us. That would be great.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Teddies in Sleeping Bags Join Teddy In A Bag!

Brand new to Teddy in a Bag are these sweet teddies in sleeping bags/papooses.
baby-pod-papoose-3-diff-500-2

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.

baby-pod-papoose-lemon-blue-500-teddy

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

baby-pod-papoose-coral-500-teddy

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:

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.

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™‚

New Small Blue Bags With Fluffy Teddies

Three of the new blue and cream small crochet bags with fluffy teddies inside:

small-blue-bags-500-2

I have been busy making more of the small bags with a small teddy in the front pocket.
And I thought it would be nice to make some more in blue and cream because they are so pretty.

Well, here are 3 of the new bags, each with a fluffy teddy in the front pocket of course.
They seem very happy teddies too πŸ™‚

small-blue-bags-500-1

These small bags, just like the pink ones, or the cream and sparkle ones, measure approximately 6 inches long by 5.75 inches wide, with comfy shoulder/carry straps which are around 15-17 inches long.
(All measurements are approximate and will vary a little as crochet items always do)

small-blue-bags-500-3

Little fluffy bears are nice and chubby, with moving arms and legs, and measure approximately 5 inches from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet.

small-blue-bags-500-1a

As you can see, the front pocket, being large enough to take a 5 inch chubby teddy, is also suitable for providing extra space for other small items and the bags are roomy inside too.

These little blue and cream bags with teddy bears in will be available at Christmas markets this year (and if I get time to make a few more, may also be on Etsy or Ebay).
Prices of each bag with teddy at markets and fairs is Β£5.00. If I post some to Etsy, they will cost more, owing to posting, packaging and processing charges.

small-blue-bags-500-4

I think these little bags are so sweet with their teddies inside.
And I hope you like them too.
