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.

Thank you so much for sharing this Lucy. What a lovely idea and so useful too.

On an earlier post, Bettina said, "The lure of new projects remains irresistible". I couldn't agree more! Sending you love.


This is a great idea. I don't like putting zips in, would rather use velcro. I will look for some of those zippy bags. Thank you.


What can I say?! You are brilliant!! Love this colorful and simplified project!! Thank you!!

I read your blog on holiday, ordered some canvas pouches for when I got home. I'm already half way through the first one using a multi coloured cotton I had in my stash. Thank you for another easy to follow pattern and inspiration! Xx

Will there be another Yarndale?


I made some small cotton granny squares and tried to line it and add a zip but these is such a better idea thank you.


Absolutely gorgeous, such a fabulous idea! Just what I needed in my life! I’m always needing a zip bag, I love cross stitch and this is perfect for those smaller projects, this way I can have my two favorite crafts at my fingertips! Thank you so much!

Gaye Brodie

Thank you Lucy! What a brilliant idea for using up little bits of yarn and would make lovely presents with a special something inside.


Love these little gems. I’m going to make some for Christmas presents and I will add a long strap to one for my little niece. Thanks for sharing 💕

Jeffery Jefferson

So clever and so pretty. I am making a tote bag like this and so excited for when it’s finished.


Can’t wait to try this pattern! Looks so fun!
Thank you for the pattern and tutorial!

These are just the cutest things ever! Just made a couple of little quilted bags for notions and such. Now I HAVE to make a few of these. Using the stitched chain as a foundation row is brilliant. Those old embroidery skills are good for something after all! I love the idea of making craft-y accessories for my craft-y tools and supplies!
Thanks for a very fun little project!

I can see this being done to a MUCH LARGER canvas shopping bag - no zip!
Thanks lovely Lucy xxx😘👍🎉

Pamela Beeching

Brilliantly addictive! I had no idea that I really needed at least 20 of these in my life!!!

Jane Bishop

I love these little pouches! They will make great Christmas presents with a little gift inside… I have sent for the pouches and the chenille needles which were sold out on Amazon (the Lucy@Attic24 effect!) but I found them on Jaycotts webpage.
Thanks Lucy x


They're so pretty!


My bags arrived on Wednesday, loads of colours in my stitch. Will start today. I may use them as little stocking fillers



Thank you Lucy, A great idea 😊. I think I'm going to make them and fill them as mini pamper gift bags for the nursery teacher's Christmas this year 💜


I can‘t wait to give this a try!
Thanks so much for sharing.

Jane McLellan

So clever!


You did it again, Lucy! They are adorable and cleverly designed. I’m so excited to start creating again. Sunday I’m back home from holiday and can’t wait to start on it as soon as the washing is in the washing machine;) Thank you! 😘


These are brilliant, Lucy! Looks like Christmas and birthday gifts are all sorted for the forseeable. I'm sitting in my loungeroom in the middle of sewing new lounge covers wondering how many purses I need to buy :-) The lure of new projects remains irresistible.

Shelly Bower

Brilliant way to use up my yarn leftovers!

Cathy Treadaway

I love them 😍. I don’t crochet though. I would love to buy one from you that has flowers on it.
