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! 😉 ) 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!

Cotton Bag In Love Birds Print With Tiny Teddy

Cotton Bag in Lovebird Print with Tiny Teddy in front pocket

Here is another pretty cotton bag. This one is in a ‘love bird’ cotton print and has pink cotton with white polka dots on the reverse side.
The bag would not be complete without a Tiny Teddy in the front pocket and, as with all our teddies, the tiny teddy can stay in the pocket all the time, or come out to play outside.

This style of cotton bag is medium size, so quite roomy. It is in two-sided (reversible) crisp cotton with a shoulder strap.
This style of cotton bag retails at £8.50 each.

Crochet Shoulder Bag With Tassles And Tiny Teddy

Crochet ‘Tassle’ Bag With Tiny Teddy in front pocket

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.

Cotton Bag With Doily Print and Tiny Teddy

This one is in a lovely deep pink ‘doily’ pattern, with a reversible lining in pink polka dot and matching polka dot pocket.
And of course the pocket contains a Tiny Teddy.

This style of Cotton bags is medium size, strong, and will hold a fair few items.
There are many different patterns and each bag is individually made, so yours will be special to you.

As with all bags containing a Tiny Teddy, These bags are for children over three years old (or for adults of course).

Cotton Bags make a lovely, quality gift all year round.
These medium size cotton bags are priced at £8.50 each.

I’m sure you, or someone you know, would love one 🙂

Lilac Polka Dot Bag with Tiny Teddy

Lila Polka Dot Cotton Reversible Bag with Tiny Teddy

At Teddy in a Bag, we sew as well as crochet and here is one of our cotton bags which I hope you will like.
This is a pretty polka dot cotton bag in lilac with small white polka dots and a plain lilac lining (or reverse side if you prefer).
And in the front pocket is one of our tiny teddies.
If the bag is reversed, the pocket will be a secret pocket inside the bag.
Cotton bags are medium sized, good quality, and suitable for children over 3 years and adults too.
Cotton bags have a strong shoulder strap or can be used as totes if you prefer.
They retail at £8.50 each and will make a present to treasure.

Small Bag in Pink and Cream Is Like Ice Cream!

pink-cream-small-bag-teddy-outside
I just had to share with you another of our small bags in pink and cream.
This one is in pale rose pink with a ‘granny square-style’ front pocket in alternate rows of cream and pale rose, and edging around the bag and within the shoulder strap is in cream.
This little bag is so pretty and reminds me of strawberry ice cream!
And of course, the front pocket on this small bag is large enough to take a full length small 5inch teddy and there is still room in the actual bag compartment for carrying all sorts of keepsakes.

Ideal for children of all ages.
These small bags with small teddy retail at £5.00 each.
