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!
Here are 4 more Small Cotton bags, each one with a small teddy sleeping inside, wrapped in his or her own crochet blanket.
I am making quite a few of these in the run up to Christmas, as they make excellent gifts, being suitable for all ages.
I try to make each small cotton bag in a different pattern to the rest, so each one is personal to the child who receives it. Small Cotton Bags with a Small Teddy inside sell at £6.00 each
I’m sure you know a little someone who would love one!
There is such lovely cotton material available to make bags, and I am still enjoying making crisp cotton small bags in a range of patterns.
This small bag is in two pink designs and is reversible, so you can choose whether you have small, dark pink roses or larger white roses on the outside.
And of course, inside the bag is a small teddy wrapped in a crochet blanket (just the thing for those cold winter nights 🙂 ).
Like all of our teddies, the small (5 inch high) teddy carries the CE mark and has moveable limbs, so he can sit down and chill out on top of his blanket if he prefers 🙂
This last picture shows the bag minus the teddy, so you can see more of the inside (or outside…) design and that it is roomy enough for carrying a few small toys or any other essentials.
With the small teddy and no extra tags or buttons, the small cotton bag with small teddy inside (in his blanket of course) is suitable for all ages.
All of our small cotton bags retail at £6.00 each and this includes the small teddy and his/her crochet blanket.
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.. 🙂
I really enjoy making these new Small Cotton Bags, so, among my other posts over the next few days, you may well see pictures of more of these bags for children of all ages.
This particular bag is again in crisp cotton, and is very much a patchwork design, using 4 different bright designs which complement each other.
And, as all of these small cotton bags are reversible, there should be something to please everyone.
The small teddy is wrapped in a colourful soft crochet blanket and of course can be taken out of the bag to give extra room to all those essential items 🙂
Like all the small cotton bags with small teddy and blanket, this bag retails at £6.00
I hope you like it as much as I liked making it 🙂
