I just want to suggest that you might be able to attach that fabric to the old curtains with iron-on hemming tape? I'm thinking it will be much quicker.



The cushions and the curtains look so sweet! I think you may need a little potted geranium to complete the picture though! ;)


What pretty curtains! It's a great idea to attach them to the original curtains - warm and pretty. I'm most impressed at the colourful Connievan prettiness, and I need to join the fan club for your pin cushion. That's gorgeous! Mine looks really dull in comparison...

Hi Lucy, it occurs to me that you'll find it easier to stitch with a much smaller needle - so long as your thread is thin also. Love the idea and combination - if I lived any nearer I'd come and give you a hand. Love all your stuff. Elainexx


Lovely Lucy as always. Your patterns and blog are truly an inspiration to me and the whole lot of color junkie crocheters!

Love everything about the Connievan. Hope you have a fabulous time and a great celebration.

Inspired by your granny stripe i have done my own too.. Tried on a flowery edge.


Lots of love n color,


Thank you for a look in your life, at the funny caravan and on the nice cusions!

I remember Little Grey Rabbit from 60 years ago. I still think they are delightful. What memories seeing your pictures bring back!

I love the gingham curtains too, I have some in my kitchen and when I went to find rugs for my floor I ended up crocheting some to match because I couldn't find any to match, or what I wanted. It is quite fun to decorate, and I can see you are having good fun with your little camper.

Oh how colorful! you made me look for caravans myself! How wonderful and I love your book about retro caravans!

we have a bit of damp in our camper too. Buy some anti-damp packs from the supermarket and place them under the seats etc. It helps a bit.


Connievan is really lucky to have you as her interior(and external!!) designer!!!

oh my I wish you hadnt shown me that cutlery, I need spooty cutlery in my life!


Just love what you're doing with Connievan she'll be gorgeous when she's finished and I can't wait for the photos! You're colourful creations brighten my day and the happiness you find in simple pleasures and small things is always a delight =o) I absolutely love the stories and illustrations of Jill Barklem's Brambly Hedge books and find they influence my own decorating ideas...so I completely understand the Little Grey Rabbit thing you have going =o)
Have a lovely weekend Lucy and thankyou xx


OMG Lucy, I love love love your curtain revamp, its totally gorgie ... the weird thing is that the material/ricrac combo is so good that I'm kind of getting the desire to wear your curtains!! ...if you don't mind me asking, what is the lovely flowery material that you have teamed with scrummy gingham and ricrac ... that's just incase I miraculously learn how to sew in my dreams or something!?! x

Lisa Ruff

Everything you make is so darn cute!!


I'm a bit giddy after that post! I think my caravan is one of the most exciting things I own, so i am completely getting your happiness. I am aloud to go a little mad in mine, I think my husband thinks that if my creative outlet goes in the caravan it means it wont be in the house! You did so well getting the flowers on, I would never get away with it. Im sure you could sneakily add a few more on when no one is looking! I am loving the curtains - was looking forward to seeing them and they didn't disappoint. The cushions look great next to the crochet, it's all starting to come together beautifully. Don't forget to get some bunting up too! Hope you have a lovely time away and go somewhere nice. I can never sleep on my first night away - too excited, do you find that too?! xxxx


Hi Lucy , so much wonderful caravan inspiration here...so many lovely links ...I've been lost in caravan dreams too :0)
I love the way you are doing the curtains...so pretty but wonderfully practical.
I have a post ready to publish about some books from my childhood...not those ones but similar in many ways ..... Tales from the End Cottage do you know them ...just finished reading them to the boys tonight , bit sad about that.
Have a great holiday .

Woo hoo! Go Connie Go!


I have fallen in love with your little gingham curtains, they are simply adorable. Your sweet little Connievan will be so lovely when you have finished working your magic.


Connievan is looking beautiful!

Un-Frig-in.....happy as can be here. Thrilled to have popped across to see what's up, girlie. I thought is was Connie time. Just look at all those new finds. You will be up all night in dreamland with all those ideas. Peace out for a great weekend. And Flower Power on...

OMGoodness, your pillows made me swoon!!!
DeLovely. **blows kisses* Deborah


Oh,you've brought back some lovely memories of my mother reading me those Little Grey Rabbit books...I adored them....still do! :0)

Thomasina Tittlemouse

What a fantastically holidayish post! I grew up on the Little Grey Rabbit books and when my son was very little I got him or rather, got me, secondhand copies of the original editions. They've been republished recently but the new editions have been abridged to make them shorter and I presume more child-friendly but in the shortening a lot of the atmospheric description is what has been cut which is a real pity as this is where Alison Uttley excels as well as in the basic story-telling. Those Margaret Tempest illustrations are so iconic and evocative. I adore them and can so understand the siren call of the gingham curtains. Do you remember Little Grey Rabbit's strawberry jam topped with a lid made from a strawberry leaf tied with a blade of grass? And Hare and the Easter Eggs with Hare's visit to the village shop to buy chocolate eggs with Roman gold and Hare's eccentric counting "one for Hare, one for Grey Rabbit and one for Hare, one for Fuzzypeg and one for Hare and one for Hare. How many is that? I can only count up to seven."!!! Just enchanting! Enjoy all your lovely caravanny plans - I love the decals and the curtains will be worth every stitch. Elizabeth xx
