Exciting Pre-Christmas Update for Teddy in a Bag

Some of the Teddy in a Bag Online Sales

For the last few months, Teddy in a Bag has been quiet, but that’s changing right now.
In previous months, because of the pandemic, we have had no markets to do and I decided to take time off to concentrate on my family.

Nevertheless, as the months have gone by, we have been increasingly busy with online sales.

Part of the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store

Alongside the teddy bags, we have been making all sorts of items for our Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store.
Everythings from scarves, shawls, ponchos and tops for children, to Christmas decorations, jewellery, and a wide range of face masks for all ages and sizes.

More from the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store

We now have a wide range of items in our Etsy Store which I would love you to see.

But I mustn’t forget the Teddy bags and Christmas gifts right here ๐Ÿ™‚
The Teddy in a Bag Online Sales Pages are still up and running and updated as items sell.

Our online sales are accessable via Paypal which offers a range of digital payments.
Postage and packing is free (Sorry – that’s UK only) and everything is packed carefully and posted first class within 1-2 business days.

The same applies to our Etsy store.
Depending, of course, on circumstances for Royal Mail, items bought from our store and from this site, are wrapped carefully and posted very quickly.

So, either way, if ordered in time, then we can offer a quick turn around on orders for Christmas gifts ๐ŸŽ… ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿงธ

The pictures here are all examples of current items in our Etsy store and up to date items on the Teddy in a Bag Online Sales Pages.
I hope you like them.

So, I hope you all enjoy your Christmas as much as you can ๐ŸŽ… ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿงธ
And do please stay safe xx

New Crochet Shoulder Bags This Christmas Season

I have added extra colours to our popular shoulder bag range.


The Teddy in a Bag small shoulder bags with a fluffy white teddy in the large front pocket are popular Christmas gifts each year.

I’m always looking for new colours in crochet yarn to make these little bags, while keeping the most popular colours also.

Dark Pink sparkle Small Shoulder Bag with Teddy

So this year, as well as our dark pink sparkle and cream small bags (very festive small bags which are great for Christmas in particular),

Cream and dark pink sparkle small bag and teddy bear

and the always-popular rose pink and cream bags,

Rose pink and cream small bag and teddy.

this year I have added new colours to the Teddy in a Bag range

Bright pink and white small shoulder bag and teddy

I’ve already shown you the bright pink and white and the baby blue and cream shoulder bags,

Baby blue and cream shoulder bag and teddy

but I’ve now added a light turquoise and cream selection too.

Light turquoise and cream small shoulder bag and fluffy teddy bear

These small shoulder bags are great for children of all ages over 3 years. They have a deep front pocket as well as lots of room inside.
And everyone loves the fluffy teddy bears ๐Ÿงธ

Light turquoise and cream small bag with fluffy teddy outside

At our fairs and markets running up to Christmas, these small bags, with a fluffy teddy bear in the front pocket, will retail at ยฃ5.00 each, so they make a great present which will be much appreciated and useful at the same time.

And with a lovely choice of colours, I think you will find at least one colour set to suit the small person you have in mind ๐Ÿ˜€.

Looking forward to seeing you this Christmas Season ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿงธ

Help finding your favourite Teddy in a Bag items.


It’s been a bit of a job, but I’ve finally got our Online Sales Pages sorted out ๐Ÿ™‚.

This means that, even though I post about individual bags, baskets, cradles and gift bags, and these posts mount up…you can now access them from a particular page.

Because there are so many different teddy bags, in all shapes and sizes, I have divided the sales pages according to category.

So, there is a Main Online Sales Page which lists sub pages for each of these categories as listed below:

baby-pink-and-cream-200-1Childrens Crochet Shoulder Bags






elephant-print-200-2Childrens Cotton Bags






blue-basket-3-200Childrens Crochet Tote Bags and Small Baskets





dark-pink-sparkle-200-1Teddies in Cradle Swings






mixed-pinks-and-blues-200-1Teddies in Crochet Sleeping Bags and Cradles







Gift Sacks and Teeny Tiny Basketslilac-pink-brn-teddy-200-1






micro-patchwork-1-200-aTree Presents and Tiny Stocking Fillers





And, as this post disappears as others appear, you can still find these pages via the Teddy in a Bag Online Sales Page, which is listed at the top of this blog, and also in the ‘Pages‘ links in the sidebar.

I must stress that the prices quoted are only for Online Sales direct from Teddy in a Bag.

My next venture will be updating the Teddy in a Bag Prices page.
Most of the prices there refer to prices charged at Markets and Fairs (which are less, because they do not need postage and packing added).

So look out for an update of our prices page next.

Also to stress: there will be no price increases at this time – just more clarity of prices and updates which link to to more recent posts made.

Pink Crochet Cradle Bag with Teddy Sleeping Inside

Useful Little Bag Turns Into a Cradle For A Very Sweet Teddy Bear


I introduced a range of these little cradle bags to you this time last year and they have proved very popular at at markets and fairs.

One of the most popular of the cradle bags is in pink and cream, so I made a few more and am sharing one of these online, for anyone who cannot get to one of our Christmas Fairs.


This style is unique among all my teddy bags. It is a clever little design. The base of the bag is in the shape of a cradle, and when you turn the bag inside out, you have a real little cradle, with decorative sides and a little hood, so that the teddy (or any other soft toy of similar size), can be fitted snuggly and comfortably inside.


And when the bag is turned back the other way, the tie string handle can be tightened and carried as a handbag, or wrapped around the wrist as a wrist strap for the bag.


The cradle bag comes complete with a pretty crochet blanket to wrap around the teddy bear which comes with the bag.


And it’s all in baby pink with cream edging.

Here are more details about the cradle bag and teddy bear for those who are unable to see it ‘in person’ before purchase:

Cradle bag Measurements:

(all measurements were made while the bag was laid flat)
The bag ‘gives’ a little in height and width once the teddy (or other items) are placed inside it.

  • Height: 14 cms (5.5 inches).
  • Width at base: 15.5 cms (6.25 inches).
  • Width at top of bag (before tie pulled to close): 32 cms (12.75 inches).
  • Tie handle: Threads through bag. Approximately 28 cms are left either side to tie in a bow and hold after tie is tightened.

Teddy Bear details:

  • Height from top of head to bottom of feet: 12.5 cms (5 inches).
  • Made with plush, cream fabric.
  • Safety eyes.
  • Jointed arms and legs.
  • Wears a pretty, red silky bow.

As this particular little cradle bag and teddy is available to purchase online, here are the details and the PayPal link:

Pink and Cream Cradle Bag and Teddy
