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!

More Small Cotton Bags With Small Teddies!

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!

Pink Shades Small Cotton Bag With Small Teddy

Pink Shades Small Cotton Reversible Bag with Small Teddy in a Crochet Blanket

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.

Small Cotton Bag In Patchwork Design With Small Teddy

Small Cotton Bag In Patchwork Design with Small Teddy

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 🙂

Small Cotton Bag With Sleeping Teddy Inside

Introducing all new small cotton bags with a small teddy wrapped up and sleeping inside!

I try to make bags for children of all ages, and all of the bags I make are suitable for children over 3 years, but sometimes it is good to have a bag (and teddy) which is suitable for under threes too.
I recommend the small crochet bags with a small teddy in the large front pocket for under threes (Here are a couple of examples: Dark Pink Sparkle Bag With Small Teddy and Rose Pink Multi Bag with small Teddy)  and the backpacks (like this for example: Backpack for Children with Small Teddy ) are fine too as they have a small teddy in the pocket (rather than a tiny teddy) (just be aware of the toggle fastening on the backpacks – they are sewn on incredibly tight, but please be aware).

However, children under three like to carry around a teddy in a bag, so I think it is important to give them plenty of choices 🙂 So, over the last couple of days I have been making more bags which are suitable for all ages and here they are:

Introducing all new Small Cotton Bags with a small teddy inside wrapped in a crochet blanket.
Each bag is made in crisp cotton with no fastenings (and each bag is reversible for a whole new look too).
Inside the bag is ideal for a sleeping teddy, but there is also a good amount of room for toys and other ‘essentials’. And of course the teddy can come out too…

Each small bag is slightly different, with a mix of colours and patterns, but they are all very appealing.

The Small Cotton bags with Small Teddy in blanket included are for sale at £6.00 each.
I will be making more of these over the next few weeks as I am sure they will be very popular and make a lovely gift for a special little person 🙂
