COLOUR-LOVING CROCHET DESIGNER KATIE JONES CREATED OUR HEART PATCHES
“Give your wardrobe some love with this set of signature heart patches. You can cover up a hole or stain, or give that jacket you have at the back of the wardrobe a new lease of life!
As a designer promoting fashion sustainability, I love how crafting and caring for your wardrobe has become an act of activism and how the simple act of fixing something
or customising increases the length we own our clothes and how this knock-on effect drastically reduces landfill.
I love using crochet to customise and these hearts are the ultimate piece if you’re new to the craft as they only use basic stitches. The hearts are so quick to whip up and can add so much to a piece – I love to wear mine on my fave festival
denim jacket for cowgirl Dolly Parton vibes! These patches are also out just in time for Valentine’s, so why don’t you give one of the pair to a pal?”
