See Teddy in a Bag at St Margarets Hall This Saturday

Teddy in a Bag is pleased to announce that we will be at the St Margarets Table Top Sale this Saturday, 28th September, 2019.

table-top-sale-st-margarets-689-widthThe Table Top Sale will be open from 1pm to 3pm.

The venue is St Margarets Church Hall, Highland Road, Southsea, PO4 9DD.

This is a great sale, with Free Entry to see lots of different tables and enjoy some refreshments. Just the thing for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon.

And the sale is in aid of helping the local community.

It’s always a pleasure to attend events which help good causes, so I’m making sure I will have some new stock on display, alongside all the favourites.

You can see from the picture above some of the lines I will be showing:

  • Teeny tiny baskets with tiny teddies and bunnies inside;
  • Teddies in swinging cradles; moses baskets, teddy cradles, small children’s baskets, backpacks, and shoulder bags, and pretty purses – all with a teddy inside.
  • And those brand new Decorative Baskets with a happy Teddy snuggled up inside which I featured in my previous post.
  • Then there are elephant ‘snuggle blankets’, and ‘sunshine’ snuggles.
  • There are some items for adults and teenagers too – the large crochet shopper on the right of the picture is just one example of this range.
  • And lots more besides from our original range.

So, I think you’ll agree that Teddy in a Bag will have a great range there πŸ™‚

I do hope you will pop in to the St Margaret’s Table Top Sale this Saturday, and do please come over to say hello to us. That would be great.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Little Crochet Pouches Make Ideal Gifts

Each of these pretty little crochet pouches is one of a kind.

Another brand new set for Teddy in a Bag are these dear little crochet pouches.

small-pouches-4-from-front-and-teddies-1-500

They are made from crochet ‘granny squares’ and each one is different in some way.

small-pouches-lots-from-back-and-teddies-1-500
As you can see from the pictures, from the front they may look alike, but turn them over and you may find a flower, a mandala pattern, a peacock’s tail, a spiral, a moon, or many other little patterns.

Suitable for adults and children over 3 years, these little pouches are ideal to store make up, keepsakes, small toys… or of course a tiny teddy πŸ™‚

As they are individuals, sizes vary a little, but the average size of these little pouches is 10cms (4 inches) wide and 9cms (3.5 inches) in height.

They all have a button closure, but open they can also be fixed to a hook (in the bathroom, etc) to hold and display little items.

At the moment, these little pouches are for sale only at markets and fayres, but may make an appearance in our Etsy shop later in the year.

Prices for markets and fayres is:
Pouch only – Β£3 each.
Pouch with tiny teddy inside – Β£3.50 each.

I would guess that these little crochet pouches would make ideal stocking fillers for Christmas too πŸ™‚

More Than Teddies This September!

I’ve been busy over the summer at Teddy in a Bag with summer markets and school fayres.
But now September is here, it is time to re-stock and to think about Christmas gifts (yes I know it’s a bit early but…Β  πŸ™‚ ).

There will be new Teddy Bags added here over the next couple of months, but in the meantime I’m stocking our Etsy Store (Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store) with all sorts of different items as well as Teddy Bags (and patterns for teddy/toy bags too).

There are already quite a few Teddy bags in the store, including the popular little teddies in hanging cradle swings, teddies in gift sacks, teddies in crochet and cotton shoulder bags, teddies in moses baskets, and more.
And that is just a few of them.

But I’ve also been working hard making Christmas gifts for adults too.

I’ve added some of our store items in the side panel and I thought I would show you a few of them in this post.

There are quite a few shoulder bags. All individual designs and colours and all fully lined.
Plus cotton string market bags to carry in your pocket and use instead of plastic shopping bags.

There is a small range of baby blankets and cot blankets in pretty colours and designs, and also a lovely ‘bright sunshine’ snuggle blanket which children love.

As fun home decor for children and adults, we have some pretty wall hangings; some with dear little chubby owls and others with hearts or stars.

Then there is a great range of coaster sets and table sets (doilies with matching coasters).
These have so many different uses – from holding a warm coffee mug, or making an elegant party drinks setting, to making dressing table sets or just to have around the home as pretty decor.

I have also been busy making crochet patterns, mainly to put teddies in at the moment, but no doubt I’ll be making some new patterns soon.

So, as you can see, I’ve been busy.
And there’s more to come as we (like it or not… πŸ™‚ ) move towards Christmas.

But there will also be more teddy bags on these pages very soon.

So please don’t forget to check back and I’ll see you soon πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Baskets with teeny teddy inside are priced at Β£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! πŸ™‚
