About Me

  • 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

Nice one, Luce, looks super cute and very you - yes, I didn't have you down as a handbag type now you come to mention it! Don't know where you get the Rowan DK cotton in such yummy colours though. Munch and I are just back from J Lewis Oxford Street and I added a few more colours to my stash but nothing like as exciting as yours!
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

Gorgeous! I'm looking forward to seeing your bag when you've done with it ~ I love the idea of flowers and buttons and leaves. =)


I love your blog, and have fingers that are itching to crochet. Can't wait to try this. I also was wondering about the heart bunting. Is there a tutorial for this, where might I find this?
Thanks for all you do!!
Kelly :D


Cara Lucy, i tuoi lavori sono sempre stupendi e a loro mi ispiro molto. Ti auguro di passare delle belle festività in famiglia con tanta serenità.
Da Trento, Italia, un abbraccio. Renata


Your current bag literally describes mine (except its quite a big bag) - as you say a bit of an embarrassment when viewed from an aesthetic view point. But I do plan to replace it - with your other beautiful bag once I can muster up funds for the yarn. I have to have a large enough bag to put a newspaper in - my only criteria really, apart from that it must have a shoulder strap (I can't remember what handle your bag has but I will make it go over my shoulder but quite snugly.) I'm always hysterically checking my bag to make sure its still there so I like to feel it. I thought I could tell what kind of bag as soon as I saw the first picture, I think it might be called a Messenger bag (a bit like posties have). They don't normally get to have pretty flowers and other treasures on though and usually are pretty dull. I think it is shaping up wonderfully and look forward to seeing it with all its accessories - personalised in the Lucy style. It will be a stunner of a bag. Have visited your flickr bag group too - great choices; aren't people clever?


What a nice and colourful bag! Ana López.


Beautiful bag Lucy! Hope you and your family have a Happy christmas and a Happy new year.x


Gorgeous, Lucy, as always! Will you bless us with a pattern/tutorial, oh please please please pleeeeeeeeeeeease?!

Hugs from snowy Colorado!


I love it Lucy! It's going to be great when it's finished, and I think flowers will be perfect on it. So handy with a little babe in arms if it's firmly slung around you. Great job, can't wait to see it when it's finished.

Looks great Lucy! Can't wait to see what it turns out like. I do like the across the body kinda bags. I also like the way the bag comes together with the strap. I crocheted a little travel bag for my mum in a similar style.


What a wonderful bag,so convenient,so practical. I hate it too when my bag gets in the way.
Merry Christmas to you and your family. xxxxxxx

Oooh, I can tell I'm gonna LOVE this. I already do at this stage, and then you mention embellishments and my heart rate increases : )! So fun, and I love the across-the-body style. Can't wait to see it all done!


Wow... it's simply beautiful! The colors and the shape.... I love the other one in the picture too!


The bag is looking lovely! One of the first fabric things I made totally on my own without having to enlist mum's help was a bag. I used the same construction method as you. It wasn't anywhere near as beautiful though, I used a funny apricot-coloured fabric from the bargain bin. But I did have some very funky big silver daisy buttons to fasten it. I wonder how you will fasten your bag? I know it will be just gorgeous when it's finished!


Beautiful, once again you bring us a lovely bright colourful creation to brighten our cold wintry days.
Thank you.

What a simple and great idea!Of course, your very special colours make the bag stylishly and first of all bright!
Well done, Lucy!May you wear it in health! (It's an approximate translation of a Romanian wishing when someone get something new)


I love it!

Lovely colours as usual. you have such a talent for putting them together.


che bella questa borsa!!!!!
Un abbraccio e tanti auguri!


This will become a beautiful bag! I love love love the bright colours!


The colours of your WiP bag are super. I can not wait to see how the bag will look like in the end.

Here in Germany we celebrate Christmas already on Dec. 24 in the evening. We call it "Heiligabend" - Holy Night. Therefore I today would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.



Hurray Lucy, So wanted to see your WiP bag. IT LOOKS FANTASTIC!!! Love the idea and style of the flap, sides and strap. You do nice work. Can you believe Santa day is almost here. I have lost a day because I was under the weather yesterday and so I have to be in full swing today....I'm trying, but wanted to stop and talk to you first! Have a wonderful day and holiday...I don't imagine you will be bloging much over the holidays, so enjoy, relax, and know we are thinking of you and your bundle! Love, Robbie
