Pink Crochet Cradle Bag with Teddy Sleeping Inside

Useful Little Bag Turns Into a Cradle For A Very Sweet Teddy Bear

pink-cradle-b-540-1a

I introduced a range of these little cradle bags to you this time last year and they have proved very popular at at markets and fairs.

One of the most popular of the cradle bags is in pink and cream, so I made a few more and am sharing one of these online, for anyone who cannot get to one of our Christmas Fairs.

This style is unique among all my teddy bags. It is a clever little design. The base of the bag is in the shape of a cradle, and when you turn the bag inside out, you have a real little cradle, with decorative sides and a little hood, so that the teddy (or any other soft toy of similar size), can be fitted snuggly and comfortably inside.

And when the bag is turned back the other way, the tie string handle can be tightened and carried as a handbag, or wrapped around the wrist as a wrist strap for the bag.

The cradle bag comes complete with a pretty crochet blanket to wrap around the teddy bear which comes with the bag.

And it’s all in baby pink with cream edging.

Here are more details about the cradle bag and teddy bear for those who are unable to see it ‘in person’ before purchase:

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.

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-cradles-online-1

Since making these little cradle bags for teddies, I have been asked if I would add them to an online store, as well as take them to Christmas Fairs.

So I have made some more in turquoise mix and lilac mix yarn and have posted 2 on Etsy and 2 on Ebay, as between them, these sites cover most craft items and toys.

The prices on both sites are Β£6.00 per cradle bag with teddy inside (wearing a scarf, of course πŸ™‚ ) and there will be no further cost for postage, packing and processing.

The Etsy listings are:

turq-etsy-thumblilac-etsy-thumb-smlr

Crochet Cradle Toy with A Small Soft Teddy Inside – for the Turquoise mix basket with teddy.

and Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy – for the Lilac mix basket with teddy.

The Ebay listings are:

turq-ebay-thumblilac-ebay-thumb

Toy Crochet Cradle Swing with A Small Soft Teddy Inside – for the Turquoise mix basket with teddy.

and Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy – for the Lilac mix basket with teddy.

Please note: These are not the same teddies and cradles. Each listing is for a different teddy and basket, even though the colour mixes are similar.

I hope you like them πŸ™‚

When I made my post about the Pretty Peach Cradle Bag with Teddy, you may have noticed a pink cradle bag in the last picture.

Well here it is. I couldn’t leave out the pink and cream version of this lovely small bag.

Here is the cradle on its own (as you can see, it can be used for any soft toy or doll of around 5 inches in length).

pink-basinnette-4

And here it is with the teddy which will be inside.

pink-basinnette-1

As always, the small teddy inside is wrapped in its own crochet blanket and turn the covers out and up and you have a dear little drawstring bag.

pink-basinnette-5

Mustn’t forget to let the teddy peek out now and again though πŸ™‚

pink-basinnette-3

Prices for all the cradle bags with a small teddy inside are Β£7.00 each when purchased at Fairs or Markets (but the cost of postage and processing fees will be added when purchased from Etsy).

I have already posted the turquoise version of this sweet cradle bag, as well as the baby blue one, but I could not forget to post the pretty peach version.

This is the same colour of peach I used to make some of the moses baskets for toddlers posted earlier, and it is equally as sweet making a cradle bag for a small teddy.

peachy-basinette-1

As with all the crochet cradle bags, there is a 5 inch teddy snuggled inside and then wrapped in its own crochet blanket.

It looks very sweet peaking out when the bag is opened too πŸ™‚

peachy-basinette-4

Just like the other cradle bags with small teddy, this will cost Β£7.00 when purchased at Markets and Fairs and postage and processing will be added to any purchased on Etsy.

These are such lovely little bags, I just can’t help making more! πŸ™‚
