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

Your cushion is beautiful! Thank you so much for this informative tutorial. I have been hoping you would make one for this project. Now I can proceed with confidence, following your instructions/photos to create my very own cushion.

Hi Lucy, Love the way you walk us through the steps! Very understandable...what do you use for the pillow part inside. Is it premake or do you make a stuffing?!Thanks in advance. Greetings from Vermont,USA

Hi Lucy, thankyou for writing/photographing this tutorial, I am very inspired. I definately want to try one of these cushions however I don't think that one is going to be enough lol....Jess


Dearest Lucy,
I love my few minutes of daily escape, visiting your blog. I am always so inspired, not only by the designs, but the pure joy and generosity that you send around the world. Thanks for sharing with us. You are a real legend in the Melbourne craft community.
Fantastic tutorials.
Take care


I've waited all my life for this tutorial x

What a lovely tutorial! Thank you for sharing. xx

med nål och tråd

How colorful and lovly!


Thank you! You have written it out very clearly, even for a beginner like me. I just love your ideas!


fantastic! thank you so much Lucy, I've wondered what method you've used for assembling your scrumptious cushions... now itching to get out to the charity shops to find a suitable jumper myself! xxx


Thank you so much for sharing! I had been wanting to know how you made your pretty cushions. One more thing for my crafty to do list.


Lucy - Thanks so much for the cushion tutorial. How generous of you to share it. And your cushion looks wonderful.


Wow that is a great idea, I have been following your blog for a while and love to check in for a creative fix. You never dissapoint. Keep up the good work.


This is such a beautiful project and a wonderful way of recycling old jumpers. Thank you. You're so generous with your time that I feel rude asking a question, but here goes... With the smaller rectangle that you cut from the sleeve, do you do anything to the cut edge that the buttons will be placed on before zigzagging through both pieces? Sorry, I'm a beginner prone to making mistakes! Vera, Sydney
