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.

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!

Cotton Bag In Lilac Flowers With Tiny Teddy

There are so many lovely cotton fabrics that I am trying to make these crisp cotton bags in a number of colour combinations.
This particular bag has pretty lilac roses on the outside and lilac with white polka dots on the reverse side.
And of course there is a tiny teddy in the pocket.
Or outside having a look around… 🙂

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.
