Hi Lucy,

I'm just finishing making this bag for a friend - it's a joy to make - thank you!


Thank you for the pattern & color inspiration. I absolutely LOVE your work. I am working on crocheting every day & getting better. (I'm a newbie since November) After the scarf I'm working on, this bag is my next project and I am excited! Hug hug hug!!!

Love your taste and your colourful crochet bag!

Hi Lucy, I love this bag and use mine all the time. I have been asked to make a few for other people, and just wanted to clarify what your position is on me charging for them, mainly to cover the costs of materials, plus a little for my time. I always tell people that the pattern is on your website, but these are people who either don't crochet, or don't have the time to make one. I'd appreciate your feedback on this, before I commit to making them. Thanks, and hope to make it to Yarndale this year and maybe get to meet you!


Oh !!! I had my pack today for a self-made birthday present !! I'm so happy and in love with the colors and I can't start working on my bag ! Indeed a happy birthday for me :)

My daughter bought me the pack for this bag for Christmas and I have almost finished it! Just the flowers and leaves to stitch on. It has been such a lovely project for the time between Christmas and New Year. Many thanks for the pattern and putting together the pack. Janet

I ordered my package of yarn for the Jolly Chunky bag. (The second one you made) I can't wait for it to arrive! I am so in love with the colors and the way it looks. Even though I am currently working on the Cosy afghan as well I am so excited about working on both of the projects together. I always work on two things at the same time. It is very relaxing to me. Especially when I get in a bit of frustration with one I just hop over to the other project until I am relaxed once again. Lucy I adore your blog and all of your brillant crocheted projects. You are such a talented woman. Thanks once again for all of the color that you add to my world. Love and joy to you and your family.

I am interested in ordering yarn for the Original Crochet Bag but I need a list of the colors and how many of each to order. I love the colors and the size of the first bag. The second bag is really lovely but it has much more red and I am in love with the colors of the first bag. I hope you reply quickly as I am excited to place an order and get to hooking. Thanks for sharing your talents!

Just got my pack for this and thoroughly enjoying every round. Have donated my appreciation to your coffee fund. Many thanks.


Hi there. I've just made one of these bags using two strands of the Stylecraft dk. It works out the same as using chunky and of course you have wonderful colours available in the dk. Thanks Lucy for all your input into making us all so excited about colour and creating. Long may you keep up the good work.

I have just completed my bag for my step mum and lined it with some cath kidson fabric to make it a little more secure when carrying things in it as she plans to use it as a day to day bag!!!

Thank you so much for providing the lovely pattern xx

Janet Ellis

I have just ordered this yarn pack to make this lovely bag. I simply cannot get these luscious colours in my town. I am really looking forward to beginning to make this. I can see me making more visits to Wool Warehouse!

Thanks Lucy x

Jacqueline Smee

Please can you tell me if I could use this yarn to make the big version of your bag and, if so, would 2 packs of the yarn be enough? Very new to crochet but just love the bags. Thank you for such a marvellous source of information




May I have your permission to use your first photo for the a Ravelry database for the pattern page I worked on for the Jolly Chunky Bag?

Thank you,

Judith Rigg

Thank you so much Lucy for your patterns and hour lovely smiles and happy posts. Finished both patterns and they look great. Looking forward to Yarndale!


I bought one of your packs from Wool Wearhouse and I love the yarn!!! I'm keeping that yarn for another project, but I used your pattern to make one of these super cute bags to give to my childrens teacher as a gift. Here's a picture of how mine turned out! Thank you for all that you do and your sharing! http://thebuttonbuffalo.blogspot.ca/2014/05/variation-on-theme-lucys-jolly-chunky.html


Help - my base is all puckered and I've followed the pattern SO carefully! What Have I done wrong?

Corey Elliott

I've finished the body of my Raindrops cushion, just need my hubby to retrieve my darning needle to sew up the edges. My 2 year old daughter is pretty sure it is her's. I might need to order a second pack if I want a cushion for myself. Started my bag last night and got the bottom finished. It is working up so quickly and I am loving the colors you chose. So glad to hear you are earning a commission from the packs! Have a blessed Sunday!

Paige Price Mitchell

Hi Lucy - I absolutely adore your work. Your color sense and mirth are so inspirational! Thank you so much from the USA! xoxo Paige

lynn taylor

Hi Lucy
Thank you so much for the pattern. I am just learning to crochet and ordered the pack to make the bag and the raindrops cushion. The bag worked out really well though I made it smaller with longer, narrower handles. Haven't quite got to grips with the raindrops cushion but will keep trying. Love your work and wish I was closer to visit Yarndale!!
Best wishes
