I have been so busy with Christmas markets, that there has been little time to update this blog, so, here is a quick run down on some of the newest items added to Teddy in a Bag:
There is a large range of very affordable Stocking Fillers, including small crochet baskets containing small teddies wearing matching scarves; tiny teddies in organza ‘wing’ bags; and tiny teddies in crochet gift sacks. Not to mention a new range of mini tiny teddies in organza bags which make excellent stocking fillers for children over 3 years.
There is a whole new range of small, reversible cotton bags, in many colour tones including blue, floral and teddy print. And all have a small teddy inside, wrapped in a crochet blanket.
We have a whole range of Elephant Print cotton bags, including double-side shoulder bags, small reversible bags, two-tone tote bags, and children’s shoppers (with double pockets).
There is a new range of cotton, double-sided shoulder bags, in a range of pretty prints. These make ‘best bags’ for children, and are large enough to be used by adults too.
Those are just a few of the new bags made in the last few weeks. And, as stock is constantly moving, particularly at Christmas markets, I’m sure that there will be many more to show you in the New Year.
See us at Castle Road Christmas Festival This Saturday and Sunday 2nd and 3rd of December:
The Castle Road Christmas Festival makes a great weekend out.
Not only are there loads of interesting stalls where you can buy great Christmas gifts, but there is also a great range of music too.
Have a look at the poster to see who is performing each day.
And don’t forget to pop in and See Teddy in a Bag at the Little Gifts of Southsea stall. we are there on Saturday and Sunday all day. You’ll really like the gifts that you see there!
Come and see us at the Love Baffins Christmas Market tomorrow (Saturday 25th November).
There will be lots of stalls, local bands and performers, food, face painting, and Santa’s Grotto!
Love Baffins Christmas Market is at Tangiers Road, Portsmouth, from 11am to 3pm.
We will be in the City Life Church (85 Tangier Road), along with stalls, performers, music, Santa, and much more.
Hope to see you there!
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! 😉 ) 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!
The ‘tassle’ bag is a new design I am making. The first few are in pink-multi like the pretty bag above, but there will be a number of different colour combinations to follow.
All these bags have a full lining.
And of course every bag has a front pocket with a tiny teddy inside.
Or outside…. 🙂
Tassle bags are a size up from our smallest bags, so there is room inside for quite a few small items.
Tassle bags are for sale at £6.00 each and they would make a lovely gift for anyone over three who loves pretty bags.
Here is another of our small crochet bags with a tiny teddy in the front pocket. This one is in dark pink ‘sparkle’, with a nice cream trim and cream bow/drawstring, and it looks very ‘festive’ and ready for Christmas!
These bags may be small, but they have room for many of those ‘little essentials’ (and there’s still room for the tiny teddy in the front pocket, unless he wants to come out of course).
As this design has a tiny teddy, it is for children (or adults) over three years old and I am sure there are many who would love one!
In fact, here are four Dark Pink Sparkle Bags all with a Tiny Teddy in the pocket, so that no one gets left out (and of course making another set of quads just like our Lilac Bags With Tiny Teddy 🙂 )
Like our other Small Crochet bags, these (including the tiny teddy in the front pocket) are for sale at £5.00 each.
Just right for a lovely present for that special little someone…or two.. 🙂
When I make a new bag for Teddy in a Bag I always make more than one. This is because people may like to buy for sisters, cousins or friends who like the same things.
So, when I decided to make a lilac and cream version of the small bag with tiny teddy and bow, as I had 4 tiny teddies just waiting for a home, I made them one each!
So here they are – the quads 🙂
