New Small Blue Bags With Fluffy Teddies

Three of the new blue and cream small crochet bags with fluffy teddies inside:

small-blue-bags-500-2

I have been busy making more of the small bags with a small teddy in the front pocket.
And I thought it would be nice to make some more in blue and cream because they are so pretty.

Well, here are 3 of the new bags, each with a fluffy teddy in the front pocket of course.
They seem very happy teddies too 🙂

small-blue-bags-500-1

These small bags, just like the pink ones, or the cream and sparkle ones, measure approximately 6 inches long by 5.75 inches wide, with comfy shoulder/carry straps which are around 15-17 inches long.
(All measurements are approximate and will vary a little as crochet items always do)

small-blue-bags-500-3

Little fluffy bears are nice and chubby, with moving arms and legs, and measure approximately 5 inches from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet.

small-blue-bags-500-1a

As you can see, the front pocket, being large enough to take a 5 inch chubby teddy, is also suitable for providing extra space for other small items and the bags are roomy inside too.

These little blue and cream bags with teddy bears in will be available at Christmas markets this year (and if I get time to make a few more, may also be on Etsy or Ebay).
Prices of each bag with teddy at markets and fairs is £5.00. If I post some to Etsy, they will cost more, owing to posting, packaging and processing charges.

small-blue-bags-500-4

I think these little bags are so sweet with their teddies inside.
And I hope you like them too.

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!

Multi Coloured Lilac Baskets With Teddies Inside

Sweet teddy with his lilac multi-coloured basket and matching scarf.

baskets-mermaid-lilac-4

My small crochet baskets with teddies inside are very popular, so I have been adding more colours to the collection.

I’ve already shown you the New Small Teddies in Baskets in Pink shades, and now here are new baskets in lilac and lovely bright multi colours.

baskets-mermaid-lilac-1

The small teddy is wearing a lovely warm lilac scarf to match the lilac shades in his basket, and looks very snug 🙂

All small crochet baskets in this design and with a small, 5 inch, teddy wearing a matching scarf, are priced at £4.00 each at markets and fairs and will soon be posted online too (of course, postage and processing costs will have to be added to online sales).

baskets-mermaid-lilac-3

I am now making some in turquoise multi-colours, so will show them to you too, when they are completed.

You can never have too many teddies in baskets 🙂

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 Lilac Crochet Backpack with Small Teddy

Another brand new backpack! This one is in a lovely shade of lilac with a silky lining inside the bag and in the front pocket.

new-lilac-backpack-500-teddy-a1

And of course it comes with a small teddy snuggled down in the roomy front pocket.

This is one of a range of backpacks you will see at our Christmas fairs and markets.
I have them in lilac, baby blue, pink and Christmas red and cream.

Because they are handmade crochet items, backpacks do vary in size a little, but this one is pretty average and measures 9.5 inches in length and 7.5 inches in width (and will stretch a little more when filled).

new-lilac-backpack-500-back
Shoulder straps are each 14 inches long but will stretch a little to fit a child’s shoulders.

All backpacks are lined – inside the bag and in the front pocket.

And not forgetting the teddy. Teddies in backpacks are all 5 inch teddies with moveable arms and legs, so they can sit as well as stand (and lie down 🙂 ).

new-lilac-backpack-500-teddy-2

Medium backpacks like this are suitable for most children.
They are priced at £8.00 at fairs and markets. When posted to our Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, they will cost £8.00 plus postage and packing and processing.

new-lilac-backpack-500-1

I hope you like this lovely lilac backpack.
It’s a lovely, roomy little bag and with the teddy and just right for a lovely gift!
