Childs Teddy Print Cotton Shopper With Teddy

Everyone loves teddies and what could be better than a shopping bag in teddy print with a teddy in the front pocket!

teddy-shopper-1-500

This pretty cotton shopper is ideal for a child to carry lots of toys inside, or if they go to school, it will carry their boooks, or be a roomy lunch bag.

The bag is sewn with double-cotton fabric. On the outside is a cute teddy print and on the inside is a pretty daisy print to match. The daisy print is carried forward into the trimming, handles and long pocket both sides (which is roomy enough for several pencils or coloured pens or more!).

And of course a really nice bonus is the small teddy sitting in the front pocket.
You can see the teddy outside the bag as well. It is a little plush teddy with jointed arms and legs so that it can sit as well as stand.

Bag measures approximately 8.75 inches (22.5 cms) in height (not counting handles) and is 10.75 inches (27.5 cms) wide.
The two handles measure 8 inches (20 cms) [3.5 inches actual carrying depth] each one.

The tiny teddy is 3 inches (7.5 cms) tall.

Although the teddy has a CE mark, I would not recommend leaving the teddy in the bag when giving to children under 3 years old to play with unsupervised, owing to small parts.

This roomy bag is for teddy lovers and it is an ideal present for both girls and boys.

Price of each bag with teddy is £8.00 each at Fairs and Markets and is £11.50 (which includes careful packaging, postage and processing) on the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop.

I hope you love our teddy shopping bags as much as we do!

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.

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.

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!

Lovely cotton shopper/tote for a child, with a tiny teddy in the front pocket:

I have already posted about one child’s cotton shopper bag with the floral print cotton shopper.
But I think you will like this addition just as much if not more: It’s a lovely double-sided shopper made with pretty elephant print cotton, coupled with stars. And all in a nice, bright red – just right for Christmas (and the rest of the year too 🙂 ).

elephant-shopper-4-500

And of course I mustn’t forget to add that there will be a tiny teddy in the front pocket of each shopper.

This little bag is made in tote/shopper style. It is very roomy inside and has deep little pockmets front and back to carry pens, pencils….or a tiny teddy 🙂

Bag measures approximately 8.75 inches (22.5 cms) in height (not counting handles) and is 10.75 inches (27.5 cms) wide.
The two handles measure 8 inches (20 cms) [3.5 inches actual carrying depth] each one.

elephant-shopper-3-500

Small, jointed teddy is 3 inches (7.5 cms) tall.

This little shopper/tote will make a lovely gift for a child who wants to help with the shopping or to take their special items to school or just to carry toys and play.

However, although the teddy has a CE mark, I would not recommend leaving the teddy in the bag when giving to children under 3 years old to play with unsupervised, owing to small parts.

These children’s shoppers sell at £8.00 each at Markets (this includes the tiny teddy of course) and will retail for £11.50 online and in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy shop (online price includes postage, packing and processing fees).

I’m sure you will agree that they are an ideal present for children, both boys and girls.

New Stock at Teddy in a Bag

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:

stocking-fillers-1
Some of our Stocking Fillers

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.

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).

more-shoulder-bags
Cotton, double-sided shoulder bags with tiny teddies in the front pocket

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.

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.

teddy-in-a-bag-display

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!
