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 🙂

Baskets with teeny teddy inside are priced at £1.50 each, so make lovely stocking fillers or pocket money presents.

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! 🙂

Hanging Cradle Bags With Teddies Are Now Online

Hanging Cradle Bags With Teddies Are Now Online In These Pretty Colours:

new-cradles-online-1

Since making these little cradle bags for teddies, I have been asked if I would add them to an online store, as well as take them to Christmas Fairs.

So I have made some more in turquoise mix and lilac mix yarn and have posted 2 on Etsy and 2 on Ebay, as between them, these sites cover most craft items and toys.

The prices on both sites are £6.00 per cradle bag with teddy inside (wearing a scarf, of course 🙂 ) and there will be no further cost for postage, packing and processing.

The Etsy listings are:

turq-etsy-thumblilac-etsy-thumb-smlr

Crochet Cradle Toy with A Small Soft Teddy Inside – for the Turquoise mix basket with teddy.

and Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy – for the Lilac mix basket with teddy.

The Ebay listings are:

turq-ebay-thumblilac-ebay-thumb

Toy Crochet Cradle Swing with A Small Soft Teddy Inside – for the Turquoise mix basket with teddy.

and Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy – for the Lilac mix basket with teddy.

Please note: These are not the same teddies and cradles. Each listing is for a different teddy and basket, even though the colour mixes are similar.

I hope you like them 🙂

Micro Teddies in Gift Bags

The tiniest teddies you are likely to see this Christmas!

micro-teddies-1

I make bags for teddies of several different sizes, but now I’m introducing to you the tiniest teddies you are likely to find in a gift bag 🙂

These micro teddies have an average height of 3.5 cms (1.5 inches!), so they really are micro tiny!

They are available at fairs and markets only.

They come in a range of colours (and some are patchwork too) and a range of pretty gift bags.

Even though they are so, so tiny, these micro teddies still have jointed arms and legs, so you can move them around.

These are not suitable for small children, owing to their micro size, but for anyone over three, they make a lovely little gift for the Christmas tree or to slip inside a Christmas stocking as a surprise.

My little micro teddies in gift bags are priced at £1.00 each, so they make great pocket money toys for the over threes too!

Aren’t they sweet? 🙂

Teeny Tiny Baskets With Teddies Inside

These are really teeny tiny baskets!
little-collage-1
These are the tiniest little teddy bags I have made so far (hence the rather blurred close up pictures – my phone camera doesn’t handle tiny pictures that well!).

I call them ‘Teeny Tiny Baskets‘ and each one contains a tiny teddy which is just under 7cms in length.

tiny-bag-pink-mix-teddy-in-smaller

These are not for the under threes, because of the small parts, but for older children, and adults, they will make a lovely little present.
Perhaps you could hang them on the Christmas tree? They are about the size of a bauble.

tiny-bag-sparkle-completed-gift-smallerAs you can see from one of the pictures, if by chance you want to keep the teddy for yourself, but you still want to use the gift basket, you can always use it as a gift sack and put small items of jewellery inside, or perhaps chocolate coins or similar.

These teeny tiny baskets will be at Christmas fairs only.

They will be priced at £1.50 each, so they make a nice pocket money gift too.

Hope you like them!
