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!

Teeny Tiny Teddies In Baskets for Christmas

These Teeny Tiny Teddies in baskets look great on the Christmas tree!

teeny-bags-on-tree-1-500

I have already introduced you to my Teeny Tiny Baskets with Teddies Inside, and I am pleased to say that they are very popular at Christmas Fairs.

So I have been busy making new teeny tiny baskets with their teeny tidy teddies and here they are. Resplendent on their very own Christmas tree 🙂

You will be able to find these sweet little baskets at the Christmas Fairs and Markets I am doing in the weeks coming up to Christmas. The teddies inside are either fluffy beige or smooth white and just under 7cms in length. And they are all very sweet 🙂

10-teeny-tinies-1a

Baskets with teeny teddy inside are priced at £1.50 each, so make lovely stocking fillers or pocket money presents.

four-teeny-tiny-baskets-smaller

I’m afraid that I won’t be posting these online at this time, because postage and packing costs would have to be added.
However, if anyone reading this cannot make it to our markets, but wants to contact me about purchasing one or more, I’ll see what I can do.

They do look great on the Christmas tree! 🙂

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 🙂

Micro Teddies in Gift Bags

The tiniest teddies you are likely to see this Christmas!

micro-teddies-1

I make bags for teddies of several different sizes, but now I’m introducing to you the tiniest teddies you are likely to find in a gift bag 🙂

These micro teddies have an average height of 3.5 cms (1.5 inches!), so they really are micro tiny!

They are available at fairs and markets only.

They come in a range of colours (and some are patchwork too) and a range of pretty gift bags.

Even though they are so, so tiny, these micro teddies still have jointed arms and legs, so you can move them around.

These are not suitable for small children, owing to their micro size, but for anyone over three, they make a lovely little gift for the Christmas tree or to slip inside a Christmas stocking as a surprise.

My little micro teddies in gift bags are priced at £1.00 each, so they make great pocket money toys for the over threes too!

Aren’t they sweet? 🙂

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.

Childs Elephant Print Cotton Shopper With Teddy

Lovely cotton shopper/tote for a child, with a tiny teddy in the front pocket:

elephant-shopper-1-500

I have already posted about one child’s cotton shopper bag with the floral print cotton shopper.
But I think you will like this addition just as much if not more: It’s a lovely double-sided shopper made with pretty elephant print cotton, coupled with stars. And all in a nice, bright red – just right for Christmas (and the rest of the year too 🙂 ).

elephant-shopper-4-500

And of course I mustn’t forget to add that there will be a tiny teddy in the front pocket of each shopper.

This little bag is made in tote/shopper style. It is very roomy inside and has deep little pockmets front and back to carry pens, pencils….or a tiny teddy 🙂

Bag measures approximately 8.75 inches (22.5 cms) in height (not counting handles) and is 10.75 inches (27.5 cms) wide.
The two handles measure 8 inches (20 cms) [3.5 inches actual carrying depth] each one.

elephant-shopper-3-500

Small, jointed teddy is 3 inches (7.5 cms) tall.

This little shopper/tote will make a lovely gift for a child who wants to help with the shopping or to take their special items to school or just to carry toys and play.

However, although the teddy has a CE mark, I would not recommend leaving the teddy in the bag when giving to children under 3 years old to play with unsupervised, owing to small parts.

These children’s shoppers sell at £8.00 each at Markets (this includes the tiny teddy of course) and will retail for £11.50 online and in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy shop (online price includes postage, packing and processing fees).

elephant-shopper-2-500

I’m sure you will agree that they are an ideal present for children, both boys and girls.

Cute Cotton Tote Bags In Teddy Print

These little tote bags are very popular, especially as they all have a tiny teddy in the pocket 🙂
teddy-tote-1-500

They are made with 2 coordinating cotton fabrics and they are double-sided (so that you can actually reverse them and have the pocket on the inside if you prefer).

This little bag has a tiny teddy in the pocket which matches the teddies on the print.
And, when the teddy is outside, the large pocket is roomy enough to carry small treasures too.

teddy-tote-2-500

The bag is approximately 9 inches in length (not counting the shoulder strap) by 7.5 inches wide, and the tiny teddy is 3 inches high.

This is a lovely bag to give to a child for Christmas, birthdays or just because you like them 🙂

I would recommend though, that for the under threes, even though the tiny teddy is guaranteed with a CE mark, that it is taken out, or supervised, owing to small parts.

These little bags are priced at £6.50 at Christmas markets or at £9.00 (includes postage, packing and processing costs) in our Etsy shop.

I will post some more of these pretty tote bag designs soon.
