Two Small crochet Baskets with Fluffy Teddy Bears

I’ve posted several times before about our little baskets with teddies inside, but I just want to let you know that they are still available at Teddy in a Bag and are doing great in the popularity stakes ๐Ÿ˜€.

So, I thought it would be nice to put a couple of these lovely small bags for sale here for anyone who can’t make it to our fairs and markets this Christmas season.

Baby Blue Fleck Crochet Basket and White Fluffy Teddy.

blue-basket-1-540

It’s surprising how many children love our baby blue baskets and this style is no exception.

blue-basket-2-540

This small basket is crocheted in baby blue and cream fleck acrylic yarn.
It is a cozy little bag. Just right for the fluffy teddy bear nestled inside.

The teddy has a matching baby blue scarf to keep out the cold as well๐Ÿ˜€

Turquoise Mix Crochet Basket and White Fluffy Teddy

turq-mix-1-540

Another very popular colour for these small baskets is turquoise mix, so I’ve included one here. It’s a colour that is bright and cheerful and appeals to many children.

turq-mix-2-540

This small basket bag, crocheted in turquoise mix acrylic yarn, makes a very snuggly sleeping place for the fluffy teddy inside. Although he does appear to like peeking out as well…

turq-mix-4-540
The Teddy has a matching scarf in light turquoise. And I got a little carried away making this one – the scarf is almost a wrap!
But I think it suits the teddy anyway ๐Ÿ˜€.

You can find both versions of these teddy baskets and others besides, when you visit Teddy in a Bag at our Christmas fairs.
But if you can’t make it to our fairs:

these two are available to purchase direct from Teddy in a Bag via PayPal.

PayPal is a safe and secure way to make payment for goods online. It will inform me of the sale and the address to send your purchase too, while keeping your details secure.

Buy Direct From Teddy in a Bag

Now You Can Buy from Teddy in a Bag via PayPal

teddy-bag-sales-620-1

It’s great to see so many people at our Markets and Fairs, and I love this type of selling the best.
But I know that sometimes you can’t make it to a market, but would still like to purchase a Teddy Bag which you have seen posted here.

I have already placed some Teddy in a Bag items online, in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, and also on Ebay where stated.
But, owing to listing costs, I have to limit the items I place there.

However, I now have permission to sell direct to you via PayPal.

This means that any item that I post about I can sell to you whilst it’s available and it will have a PayPal button in the post.

Of course, some items are limited in numbers, particularly the larger ones. And these will sell at a first come first served basis.
But most of the small teddy bags will be available to purchase throughout the year.

Sales via PayPal are covered by their terms for your security.
You do not need a PayPal account to order this way, but you do need to have access to an acceptable credit or debit card.

Over the next few days, I will be adding a new Teddy in a Bag Sales Section.

You will also begin to see PayPal buttons on posts.

And in the meantime, here is a small selection of the Teddy Bags, baskets and cradles now available to be purchased via PayPal:

Teddy in a Gift Basket the Ideal Present!

Teddy in a Gift Basket New To Teddy In A Bag:

basket-completed-3a-with-teddy-1

I have some lovely teddies holding red roses and I felt that they needed a special basket to sit in, so I am making them special Gift Baskets.

So far there is a Christmas colours gift basket and a Shades of turquoise gift basket and more to come.

basket-completed-8-two-made-2

The gift baskets have a crochet cover in pretty colours, with a shell-edged finish in white, which looks like snow on a roof edge.
Inside the baskets are soft cotton fabric cushions and a lovely, soft bolster to support the teddy in comfort :).

These are bigger teddies than usual, measuring 20cms x 19cms when seated, and they fit just right in the baskets.

However, when the teddies are taken out to play with, the baskets can be used to keep other items on the padded interior – perhaps jewellery or other toys, or keepsakes.

Or, remove the ‘teddy seating area’ and the baskets become very nice storage baskets for larger toys and keepsakes.

As you can tell, I’m very pleased with these teddies in gift baskets and they will be appearing at markets and fairs between now and Christmas.

However… you may like this idea and want to make a gift basket yourself. And to help, I have written a free pattern/tutorial on how to make your own special gift basket.

You can find it either on our crafts blog,ย  Elephant Sun Dog on this page:
Decorative Gift Basket – Free Crochet and Sewing Pattern.

Or you can download a pdf copy of the pattern for free from my pattern shop on Ravelry on this page:
Decorative Gift Basket by Silvi Veale

And you never know, I might just have started a whole new idea for upcoming Christmas gifts which you can all join in with ๐Ÿ™‚

And it would be great to see you soon at our upcoming fairs and markets with more Teddy Bags.

Cute Teddies Inside Pretty Moses Baskets

Small Teddy swaddled in a blanket inside a pretty moses basket.
small-moses-basket-and-teddy-pink-mix-1

I introduced a picture of a new Moses Basket with a Small Teddy Inside as the closing picture of a post back in August.

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-blue-mix-1
I had made them for local fayres, but hadn’t had time to make a post about them.

Well here they are ๐Ÿ™‚

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-pink-mix-7

I have made only a small number of these, because the plush little teddies that fit nicely inside are in short supply right now.

Now there are only 3 left I’m afraid. but I’m so pleased with them, I thought I would make a post about them anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

The moses baskets are crocheted in pretty pastel colours and are deep enough to hold the teddy perfectly and the teddy inside comes wrapped in a large swaddling blanket to keep out the cold just in case!

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-blue-mix-2

The teddy comes with the CE safety tag. It measures just over 5 inches (13cms) from top of head to bottom of feet.
It is a chubby little teddy with jointed, moveable arms and legs.
And it wears a pretty red bow ๐Ÿ™‚

small-moses-basket-and-teddy-pink-mix-8

I have placed one of these little moses baskets and teddy on our Etsy shop.
You can see it here:

Tessy Bear In A Crochet Moses basket, In A Soft Swaddle Blanket

The other two will be for sale at upcoming markets.

These small baskets with teddies are for children over the age of 36 months. And I’ve already discovered that children over 3 absolutely love them!

If I find more suitable-sized teddies, I will definitely make more of these cute moses basket sets, but for now, here are a couple more pictures of two of the remaining ones.

Summer Fayres and New Stock at Teddy in a Bag

It has been a busy summer so far for Teddy in a Bag.
We have had a great time in the sun at school fayres. Last weekend, we had two great days at Pop Up on the Pier, Southsea, and this coming Saturday, 3rd August, we will be at Castle Fields, Southsea, for the Rowans Hospice Summer Fete (more about that in the next post).

Here is a side view of the stall shared with Little Gifts of Southsea at Pop Up on the Pier.

As you can see, it was a little windy but there was so much for all the family to see and do, it was a great event.

In the picture, you may have caught a glimpse of some of the new items for sale at Teddy in a Bag.
I like to make sure that there is always something new and interesting to see and this year there are bunnies as well as teddies on display!

There are tiny crochet baskets, some with a teddy inside and some with a bunny inside and they are extremely cute! And just as important, our Bunny in a Basket and Teddy in a Basket gifts are very reasonably priced, at ยฃ2.00 for each basket with Teddy or Bunny inside. so they make lovely gifts and pocket money toys.

Alongside the little baskets, some of the most popular items are our Teddy in a swinging crochet cradle.
They look lovely hanging from a door, from the side of a child’s bed, or holding as a teddy wing.
At ยฃ3.50 each, the cradle swings are also a great gift for a child.

But there is loads of stock at Teddy in a Bag for you to choose from.
The picture below shows more of a closeup of just some of the items on display.

We also have adult’s and children’s bags (including eco-friendly cotton shoppers) and children’s snuggle blankets with bright sunshine or elephant centres. And these complement our bags, backpacks, cradles, moses baskets, little baskets and more and in lots of different sizes.

When you visit us at a fayre or market, there is always someone on hand to talk to if you want to ask questions. For instance, there are special bags and teddies which are safe for toddlers, while there are others which are loved by and safe for children of all ages (and adults too!).

You can see some Teddy in a Bag stock at the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, but to see much more and to view stock which is not always for sale online, do try to see us at our next markets.
We’d love to see you there.

And the next post is about exactly that…. our next market!
