Pretty rainbow gifts sacks – all with a tiny teddy inside!

I started making these little crochet gift sacks towards the end of the Christmas season last year and they were very well-liked.

Each little gift sack is approximately 3.5 inches (9cms) wide by 4 inches 10 cms) long and stretches a little to take some nice gifts. So, they are ideal as stocking fillers.

However, because every bag I make comes with a teddy, I of course put a tiny, 7.5 cm teddy in each sack and I must admit, they are very well-loved!

The rainbow yarn used to make these little gift sacks makes them lovely and bright and suitable for a gift any time of the year.

At fairs and markets, these little gift sacks with teddy inside will cost Β£2.50 each (they will cost a little more online to allow for shipping and processing costs).

So they make a lovely, very reasonably-priced stocking filler or just a special little gift!

Beginning the Christmas Season

I have been very busy lately, making new bags for Christmas Fayres, so updates have been quiet. You can actually see some of the bags I have made recently on the Teddy in a Bag Instagram feed, posted in the sidebar here as well.

But to keep you updated, here is a picture of the Teddy in a Bag display at the Salvation Army Christmas Fayre, this last Saturday. As you can see, there are plenty of bags, all different sizes, some crochet and some cotton and many in Christmas colours (and all with teddies in of course). The elephant print bags are particularly popular (elephants and teddies, what more could you want! πŸ˜‰ ) and I have found a nice range of cotton fabric to make very pretty bags for Christmas gifts.

The next Christmas Fayre that Teddy in a Bag has a stall at is this coming Saturday (25th November), at the Love Baffins Fayre, in Tangiers Road, Portsmouth, so I’d better get back to making more bags right now!
