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

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!!

Looking for something to make ..... Nothing grabbed me , then I saw your bag . I've lots of scraps of wool . So thank you for the inspiration . Can't wait to get started xxx


Beautiful bag, I think I will attemp it because I can see a great use for it, such as carrying my paints back and forth to school in a very colorful way. I am a grandma who taught herself to crochet so I can see myself having trouble following the instructions but I will find a way to make it.

Mandy Long

Thanks so much for the pattern - I can't wait to get started. I'm hoping that acrylic yarn will work OK as I have loads left from the rainbow blanket that I made. You are AWESOME!!

 Liz Boston

Thanks so much for the pattern! Just one question...do you sew the handles on with yarn or thread?


Lucy I LoVE your patterns, they always turn out perfect and your tutorials are the best there are! Have just made this bag up out of some leftover bits of Stylecraft and even with wacky colours it looks so fab! Thanks so much for sharing all your creative talents with us. (My bag came out a bit stretchy with the acrylic DK though so I might make a lining for it, if I do I'll put a how-to up and link back here if that's OK).

I absolutely love this bag!! Thank you for your beautiful pictures, very easy to follow instructions, and fun projects :) I just finished my bag and I absolutely LOVE it!!!


Thank you for another fabulous project! I made a version of it for my Mum for Mother's Day and she LOVES it! Here is a link to a photo of it http://instagram.com/p/mH8ygSNQxT/ hope you like it too!

Love the bag and I want to try to do it. So colorful it makes me smile. Thanks for sharing. love Victorians as we live part time at our sons in Boston Mass.


Hi! Thank you so much for your wonderful bag recipe; I'm looking forward to making one to use for holding all my yoga gear.
You are a gem for sharing!
(p.s. I wish you had your comments posted 'most-recent-ones' showing first. It took days to travel through the comments from 4 years past. But, I did see many great comments along the way... You have many fans! :D)
Thank you again.

I love this bag! And ALL of your tutorials! I taught myself to crochet from your site! I'm not sure if it is my affection for the UK ( daughter in law hails from there!) or just your lovely way of explaining in detail.....but you have a devoted fan! Thank you!
P.s.....first thing I made was your granny blanket. Actually 2 of them. I'm "hooked"!


Hi just love your work your a great inspiration!! wondering if you have any ideas, I'm just going back to crocheting again so quite rusty!!and need/want to make a little cream bag for my daughters communion! Any ideas or EASY patterns I could try? I was going to try the above smaller with drawstring instead of handle? But quite nervous any thoughts sal

Sharon Clarkson

Another great design Lucy, glad we can all prove that crochet is very much a growing craft again! Love the blog and love spreading the crochet word!
My bag that I made last week using your lovely pattern http://humbugshouse.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/stripey-crochet-bag-with-flowers/

Faye Simmons

This is Faye Simmons, I just finished my bag, it is so pretty, I just love it. Thanks for the pattern, it was very easy to understand. Thanks again!!!!!


I made two of you yarn bags last year, one for a friend of mine, and we brought them with us to the Houston International Quilt Show. Was so excited when several women in the crowd just said "Attic 24". I thought that was priceless...
Thanks so much for your lovely talent and I look forward to your creations for 2014...
God Bless,
