New Crochet Shoulder Bags This Christmas Season

I have added extra colours to our popular shoulder bag range.

three-new-bags-600

The Teddy in a Bag small shoulder bags with a fluffy white teddy in the large front pocket are popular Christmas gifts each year.

I’m always looking for new colours in crochet yarn to make these little bags, while keeping the most popular colours also.

So this year, as well as our dark pink sparkle and cream small bags (very festive small bags which are great for Christmas in particular),

Cream and dark pink sparkle small bag and teddy bear

and the always-popular rose pink and cream bags,

I’ve already shown you the bright pink and white and the baby blue and cream shoulder bags,

but I’ve now added a light turquoise and cream selection too.

These small shoulder bags are great for children of all ages over 3 years. They have a deep front pocket as well as lots of room inside.
And everyone loves the fluffy teddy bears ๐Ÿงธ

At our fairs and markets running up to Christmas, these small bags, with a fluffy teddy bear in the front pocket, will retail at ยฃ5.00 each, so they make a great present which will be much appreciated and useful at the same time.

And with a lovely choice of colours, I think you will find at least one colour set to suit the small person you have in mind ๐Ÿ˜€.

Looking forward to seeing you this Christmas Season ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿงธ

Teddy in a Bag Christmas Fairs List for 2019

Teddy in a Bag now has a list of Christmas Fairs we are doing this November and December.

christmas-fairs-2019-t-in-bag-625

To see the full list, click on the following link: Teddy in a Bag at Christmas Fairs, or you can click on the link at the top of the right hand sidebar.

I’ve kept the list on the linked page simple, with mainly words and few images, so that it is print friendly.
So, if you want to keep the list to check on dates, you can either copy and paste it into Word or similar, or paste the url of our Christmas Fairs page into Print Friendly and download a pdf.

All the bags, beds and baskets shown here on Teddy in a Bag will be for sale at our markets and fairs, plus a few extras, including purses and bags for adults and other children’s gifts too.

The dates given on the Teddy in a Bag Christmas Fairs list are now confirmed, but there may be more to come later.

Just to give you a quick run down of fairs you will find there:

Our first Christmas Fair takes place this coming Saturday, 23rd November.
It’s the Salvation Army Christmas Fair which we do each year.
It’s a great beginning to the Christmas season. It’s a lovely, friendly fair, held in a very good cause, and I always look forward to this one.

salvation-army-1

Then there are two fairs the following week – Portsmouth Grammar Junior School Christmas Fair on Friday 29th November and Love Baffins Christmas Market on Saturday 30th November.

love-baffins-2019-625
These are both big fairs where there will be lots of stalls and loads of ideas for Christmas presents (and hopefully you will come and see Teddy in a Bag there too ๐Ÿ˜€ ).

We attend two fairs again the following week:
St Judes School Christmas Fayre on Friday 6th December and St Swithunโ€™s School Christmas Fair on Saturday 7th December.
These are school fairs which are open to friends, family and anyone who wants to share Christmas with the school children and their teachers and parents and enjoy a carol or two as well.
Great fun!

Then Teddy in a bag will be very busy the following weekend.
For three daysFriday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of December, you will find Teddy in a bag at our own stall at Tesco, Fratton Park (The Pompey Centre), Portsmouth.
We will be in the foyer each day from 10am to 4pm alongside other craft and art stalls with lots to interest you for Christmas.

tesco-fayre-2019-625-1
This is part of Tesco Fratton Park’s community engagement events and all Tesco profits from the craft market will be donated to local charities.

Just to add that Little Gifts of Southsea will also be at all of these events, often at an adjoining stall.
Little Gifts of Southsea sells Jewellery, Christmas Decorations, Keyrings, Handmade ornaments and much more, plus holds a lucky dip at School Fairs, so is well worth a visit too ๐Ÿ˜€ (you can also check out some of their stock on this page here: Sister Site Little Gifts of Southsea).

So that’s the confirmed list so far.
I really hope to see you at one or more of these events.
And please feel free to ask questions or just stop by for a chat.
It will be very much appreciated.

Also I must mention. Fair and market prices of Teddy in a Bag items are very reasonable. I often bring new extra items on the day, but if you want to check out the prices I charge at fairs for regular stock, then do see the Teddy in a Bag Prices page.

Anyway, I will post each fair again a day or two before it occurs.
But don’t forget that you can find the full list and times on this page:

Brand New Cradle Swings Getting Ready for Christmas

Some of the New Cradle Swings at Teddy in a Bag:

One of most popular items at Teddy in a Bag are the dear little cradle swings with a small teddy inside.

Ever since I began making the ‘teddy cradles’ late last year, they have been loved by fair goers of all ages.

I have also placed some online. You can still see them in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop and again soon on Ebay (But I’ll post an update when that happens).

And this year, there are new colours available in teddy cradles.


We now have lilac, shades of pink, sparkly red, sparkly purple, turquoise, shades of blue, and firm favourites – turquoise mix and lilac mix.


And I’m sure there will be more colours to come ๐Ÿ™‚

As always, all the teddies wear a jaunty scarf in a colour to match their cradle.

These little hanging cradles with teddies inside truly make an ideal gift, because they can be hung beside the bed, or desk, carried around with you, simply played with, or, of course, hung as a present on a Christmas tree…. ๐Ÿ™‚

At markets and fairs, cradles with a teddy inside remain at the price of ยฃ3.50 each.

For online prices, and prices of all Teddy in a Bag items, please see the Teddy in a Bag Prices page for more details.

There will be much more to come in updates and new items in the run up to Christmas.


So don’t forget to check us out here at Teddy in a Bag and drop into one of our markets if you get the chance ๐Ÿ™‚

Update:
You can now get one of these pretty swinging cradles even if you cannot attend one of the Teddy in a Bag Markets, because they are…
