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

I know this is a very old post but I had to say - I had an idea to recycle a passata jar and some yarn to create a pretty vase and so checked out the Internet for inspiration. This pic popped up and I just knew it was going to be an attic 24 creation. Xx


Hi Lucy, After finding your article in Issue 18 of Simply Crochet I just had to have a nose at your blog! Like you I love making things for the home and wanted to share with you a similar creation to your Jar Jackets (http://www.mygirllollipop.com/), I crocheted a flowerpot cover out of recycled carrier bags - a waterproof version for the garden! :-)
Quick projects like these are definitely addictive!!


Hi Lucy,
i really like your way of decorating your house and your choice of matching colors and the result is always cheerful and amazing.
i just want to ask you how to make the jar covers for wavy jars like Nescafe's jars for example?
I'm waiting your reply and thanks a lot.


Dear Lucy

I love to crochet and your blog is awesome.
Thank you for sharing all your ideas and for the great tutorials.

Hi there! I found your blog earlier this year and I love it soooo much! I used your jar jacket pattern to make a cozy for my coffee jar and I wanted to say thank you for your free patterns and making my coffee bearable to carry with me. :) Here is a link to what I made... http://bookwormofsexiness.blogspot.com/2012/09/i-finally-made-myself-few-cozies-for-my.html

@Hazel, I think it would work on plant pots, but don't expect it to hold water or something because it would just destroy the thread.


Thanks for the great idea!! I made one and just blogged it - http://sophieslim.blogspot.com/2011/09/revelio-jar-cover.html

Amazing jars with jacket. I like your creative idea about jacket jar. It looking for something to store utensils. I and my daughter will try out for this.


Just the idea I needed to cover up a nasty brown plastic plant pot on my window sill. Thanks.


hey,its very good idea,see my moncler jacket http://www.monclershower.com/moncler-men-jackets/Moncler-Men-down-Jacket-Red,thanks!


Thankyou for this lovely idea. My daughter wanted to learn to crochet and these lovely jar covers really inspired us - brilliant to do on the train back to london!


I've just made this jar cover, my first ever crochet project. Thank you for posting it - so easy and so effective! I LOVE your blog :)
