COLOUR-LOV­ING CRO­CHET DE­SIGNER KATIE JONES CRE­ATED OUR HEART PATCHES

Mollie Makes - - Contents -

“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?”
