I love your bunting, it has inspired me to make some granny pattern ones and I am busy churning them out in all colors, I have ordered some little bells too from Ebay and will now make some of your tiny hearts and flowers to embellish them all ready to go under my awning for the summer!! Thanks for all your inspirations!


AWESOME! I would never have thought to trace directly off the computer screen. Thanks so much for sharing ~ :)

Supremely lovely Lucy!


Perfect! no other word for it.
Congrats to both you and little man for the creation.


Lucy, you always do such a wonderful job....your children are going to have such precious memories when they get older.




Fun and Joy, that's so spot on it's perfect. I hadn't seen your post about your art work before, they are amazing, just stunning. It explains why everything you do has such a wonderfully authentic look about it, such a sense of style. BTW I loved your last post and your summing up of your sense of home, I feel just the same way, I'd have commented earlier but I've had my hands full of baby :o)

Fun and Joy. How perfect! Love these pendants. I'm picturing something for the kitchen (once I get the kitchen remodeled) saying something like 'Spice It Up'. Use as window treatment rather than buying a valance for the kitchen window.


Fabulous! My hooky wheels are already spinning with colors & ideas for making one myself.


Love it, Lucy! It looks so beautiful, just like everything you do!


I love this bunting and would like to make some for my daughter's wedding. How many 'pennants' can be made from one ball of Rico cotton please?


Lovely bunting! And very Lucy--joyful and fun. One question, why do you have to flip the letters? Can't you just cut them out and flip them then? I must be missing something.


Oh my, I don't know which words to use to describe your work - stunning, awesome and perfect pop into mind! Absolutely love your bunting, the colours you use make me feel alive.


simply beautiful!
love, xxx


One more thing...I can vision, Valentine's Day, St. Pat's Day, Easter, etc...

I love this!!!


LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I know there are 12 months until xmas again, but I think I'm going to have to make some, or maybe something else in the meantime :)

Happy new year, I just adore your blog. Your patterns have helped me get started on crochet and I have even started a blog myself. Look forward to reading more in 2012.


Hello Lucy,

And a very happy new year to you and your family! I love your latest creation, love that Little Man was so wise in his choice ;-P, and have just finished 4 of them already (1 O'clock in the morning, but who's counting??!!) Thank you, as always, for being so generous in sharing that amazing creativity of yours :-)
All the best,


I just love this bunting.. makes my heart go skippedy skip!!
Have a great day :)

Fun and joy! What marvelous words. Only I have to translate to Spanish to make sense to my family! Perhaps I'll ask my little people as you did. Wonderful idea! Thánks, Lucy.You're so sweet. Happy New Year to all of you at the Attic.

Oops I meant bondaweb not wonderweb!


That is such nice bunting! Love the design and your word choice. I have got some materials in for Christmas makes and I plan to do stuff now or at least before it all gets so hectic before Christmas.

I did manage to make a Christmas stocking garland which turned out very nicely but I would love one of these.

I'm not sure if moths eat cotton but they surely do wool. I have had several things eaten lately made from expensive yarn which was quite upsetting. I am trying to put things away carefully and using essential oils to get the moths to stay away. But they literally seemed to eat my scarf while I was wearing it. It's a big shame and with something like Christmas decorations which you want to keep year upon year it would be awful to have them eaten up!

I know lots of people, me included use acrylic for decorations and I was wondering if using iron on wonderweb would melt the crochet underneath? I'm not sure how hot the iron needs to be but I would be very careful if using stylecraft etc and perhaps find an alternative method.

This is definitely going on my list of makes as I love it!

Lucy I love this so much. Now I don't know what to make first. The bunting or a blanket. Thank you for the pattern and the idea!!


Dear Lucy, a beautiful idea. Thanks for sharing. You are "an artist". Hugs from southern Spain.

Beautiful Lucy! Thank you for writing out the pattern for your gorgeous, festive bunting.
