This post finds me in an extremely delighted state and I’ll tell you why – Simply Crochet magazine issue 61 is out now…

and with this month’s magazine there is an added ‘Crochet Edits’ supplement with three bonus floral patterns – and one of those patterns is mine!! 😁🎉

I’m always inspired by the different ways you can embellish a crochet project (and there are so many!) and cross-stitch was a method that I was really eager to incorporate into a design.  Now you can sharpen your crochet and cross stitch skills with my new Perfect Pansy Cross Body Bag.

Bold print and vintage inspired, this bag is perfect for women, like me, who prefer to be hands-free when out and about.  Cross body bags are, in my opinion, a perfectly practical style solution – a case of fashion meeting function (which is why I love them!). 

Pansy’s and viola’s are some of my favourite flowers; their rounded velvety petals and vibrant colours always make an appearance in my flower pots. I’m not exactly what you call green fingered, I’m more of a nicely arranged patio pot kind of gal, but I love the fact that these hardy annuals are a) hard to kill off and b) always bring some bright rainbow cheer to the garden even when the sun isn’t shining!

Appearing in this supplement for Simply Crochet magazine is quite a special moment for me! When I first started crocheting again, just over five years ago, Simply Crochet was the first magazine I bought and later had a subscription to. And I just love how they have styled the section for my pattern with pretty feminine shades that I think perfectly complement my floral design!

If you are not familiar with Simply Crochet magazine it can be found in all major supermarkets and/or magazine suppliers in the UK.  Each issue features loads of crochet patterns each month; advice on techniques; step-by-step guides and crochet inspiration – you’ll be hooked from the very first page! They also offer worldwide subscriptions! This starts from £25.95 (in the UK) for six issues. 

With issue 61 you also get a rather funky floral 4mm polymer clay hook – which incidentally happens to be the perfect size for hooking my bag 😉.

I can’t wait to see how your bag projects turn out! Be sure to share your photos with me on social media (facebooktwitter or instagram) – I love to see what you make!

Until next time, keep calm and crochet on my friends x

  1. Congratulations! I have seen this magazine in our co op and haven’t bought it yet, mainly as I never make the projects from magazines because my WIP list is so long! Maybe I’ll have a look at my budget and see if I can afford it. So excited for you!

    • Aww thank you so much! I hear you about a long WIP list lol! I’m a bit of a crochet magazine addict! What I do instead of birthday presents or things like that is to suggest to my family that they club together for a magazine subscription, that way I get to enjoy a present all year round too 🙂
