About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Lovely pattern... So easy to follow!
Just one thing, what do I do to make the base a little rigid? It's all droopy when I put things in it. :(


Nobu Murakawa

Woooo!!! What a lovely colorful crochet designs :)
I will definitely try it. Here is the another link where i found lovely crochet designs as yours.


I just started one of these tonight and I can't wait to see it finished. I'm using scraps of leftover pink skeins :) different textures, colors, yarns, and fibers. Thank you so much for the great tutorial! :)


I paid $7.50 USD for this pattern several years ago. I should have waited.



I found this on Deramores which says it's Aran weight not DK, will this do?

Is there any way to read the answers you give to previous comments as there are a few I would like to know the answer to but don't want to keep bugging you! I always find the Q&A in the comments section really helpful on blogs. Thanks!

Thks so much Lucy - I will attempt to make this soon :-) You r very inspirational... thks a mil xxx

Mia Robbins

Hi Lucy, can you tell me how much yarn you used for this bag pls? Thks! Mia x


How many balls of wool would I need to make this bag. Would 17 100 balls of DK (one in each different colour) be enough?
Many thanks

Hi Lucy!
Thanks so much for this tutorial! I have really enjoyed the simplicity and repetition of this pattern and it was so easy to finish. Wish there was an easier way to sew ends in though :-)
Thanks also for the link to the cute little flowers!!
