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

Here is a link full of information about how to use the Sulky Sticky Fabri Solvy - https://bustleandsew.com/embroidery/transferring-your-emroidery-pattern-using-sulky-sticky-fabri-solvy/

Here is something else you might have fun making sometime in the future (and there is more info about the Fabri Solvy near the bottom!) - I hope to make these ornaments next year sometime. http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days.html


I love all those beautiful butterflies! They remind me of my lacy butterfly, tatted by an elderly Italian Nonna who was selling them in the doorway of her home on one of Venice's islands. I bought just one and every year I put it up on our Christmas tree as a memory. Meg:)


Hi Lucy
The soluble embroidery fabric you mentioned is available on Amazon (of course!), it’s called “Sulky Solvy Water Soluble Stabilizer”. I used some last year, it was pretty good although you need to be careful which pen you use to draw your design, as you don’t want pen to bleed onto the actual fabric when you come to dissolve the Sulky. I have seen patterns that say you can feed it through a printer but I didn’t dare do that in case it gummed up my printer! The stuff I got was self adhesive so once I had drawn the design I stuck it to the felt, embroidered, then washed it away. I think non-adhesive is also available.
Best of luck with your cardigan, what a lovely idea x

Yes, Nienke Landman lives in the Netherlands, in Zwolle.
She even wrote a book.
Oh, I'm curious about your cardigan.
Can't wait to see it.

Gillian Roe

Oh my goodness Lucy, I am LOVING those folksy woollen embroideries so much! I want to embroider some mittens right now, and you are right, that style will be just perfect on that cardigan. Thanks for showing us your thought process and all those lovely links - I can't wait to see the finished result. xx
