post a patch.

i heart...

when a plan comes together.

after struggling to find a charity willing to accept the donation of our community-made blankets (read more here), thanks to your help we've now found one!

Starter Packs Glasgow is a charity that provides starter packs of basic household necessities for homeless households in glasgow. our blankets will be gladly received by people who don't have much & are striving for a fresh start.

so let the knitting commence!

all you need to do is...

  • knit/crochet a 10cm x 10cm patch, in any colour or pattern you wish - be as creative as you like!
  • send your patch to:
i heart...
21 Burnside Avenue
PH22 1SE
  • we will then sew all your beautiful patches into lovely blankets & send them to Start Pack Glasgow, who will pass them onto people who will benefit immensely from them.
there's no deadline on this as i would like it to be an ongoing project which could hopefully help other charities as well, but the quicker you get knitting the quicker the blankets will be made & enjoyed by people in need around glasgow.

go get your knitting needles out!

  1. Right, I am a complete beginner, as I haven't knitted since my teens, but I'll try and knit some patches! I work in homelessness in Inverness and know that these blankets will be of great help to homeless people making a new start in life. X
