I have got all my yarns ready to make a bag, I haven't really crocheted for around 40 years but so excited about this bag, If it works out well I might even make a smaller one for my gorgeous little grand daughter

Hi Lucy!
I'm practicing on some scrap yarn until my order from woolwarehouse arrives to my humble abode here in sunny San Jose, California. Whilst (love this word, and we never get to use it in my neck of the woods) ending each round, I seem to have a gap that keeps showing up no matter how closely I follow your instructions. Any pointers?
I finished the garden square blanket a few weeks ago and gave it to my 10 year old niece who loved it! Thanks so much for your blog!!

I've been making this bag for my daughter's birthday on Wednesday. Since I travel 6 hours to visit, I decided to finish it up here. Guess what? No buttons packed! I will be forced to go to the craft store. Oh no. :) Thank you for sharing this pattern. I really love it! I lined mine with a bright and happy polka dot cotton!

Next is the pillow and I hope the seaside blanket is up by the time I finish! *hope hope*

I love bright colors and I am going to attempt your pattern. I live in Canada so will have to substitute the brand of yarn. Thanks for sharing.

Elaine Link

I love this!!!!


Thank you Lucy!!! I just got in LOVE with this bag instantly. I ran to the store and got my yarn. I am pretty busy at college but my study must have to wait!! Greetings from Costa Rica!

Lori Martinez

Hi Lucy, I am working on the cushion and can't wait to make the bag too. I havent done any crocheting for 40 years, but your blog has inspired me to take it up again. I hope you are getting a decent commission, it makes me feel better too. I might even attempt to try making a mandala for your Yarndale project! Thank you.


BRILLIANT news Lucy. I am so thrilled for you. Really rightened up my day hearing this news. Well done. I am now very tempted indeed to make the cushion. x


I love this bag! I've been after a pattern for a while and this is perfect! Well done on achieving some commission for the yarn packs, you definitely deserve it. xx

Just bought a pack, Lucy xx


I'm happy to say that for Mother's Day my husband ordered one of your packages from Wool Wearhouse that he knew I was longing for along with a couple of other goodies! I've been so anxious to get my hands on the Stylecraft Special Chunky since you seem so fond of it (and we don't have it in Canada). I'm double happy that you benefit from this purchase. Thank you for all you do!

Hello Lucy, your work is lovely. I'm pleased for you. You give such a lot of pleasure with your creativity, you should have something back. Thank-you.

Lizy Tish

So pretty! I love the pictures of your hooking/snacking/sipping!


Hello Lucy. I'm making the bag and it's beautiful. I would never in a million years had the courage to put the colours together like you've done....but you did it for me, and they are so gorgeous, as is the pattern. I shall go forward after this with a new eye for colour!

Gorgeous bag, I love it.


This is funky-fabulous!! I've just finished making the original bag using stylecraft DK & it did turn out a bit stretchy, so I can't wait to have a go at this one with the chunky yarn, it looks pretty sturdy! Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous patterns here with us all. (And I LoVE Wool Warehouse, whoohoo!)


Great post and fabulous bag project. I agree with all of those above- you are perfectly entitled to make something from these and other projects that you design and create. Last time I looked they'd sold out. Go You!!! Karen xx


They are sold out already!! Can't wait to make both though!! Thank you so much for your sharing!
