The Purple Stitch Project

The other day I stumbled across a great project – The Purple Stitch Project. The aim of this project is “to raise awareness of epilepsy one stitch at a time”. The idea is for lovely people to knit, crochet or sew gifts for babies, children and teenagers who have epilepsy to remind them that they have support and also to raise public awareness of the third most prevalent neurological disorder. All you have to do to take part is to make something purple and then post it off to the USA. You can also design and donate patterns for others to use.

I really wanted to take part and thought that a mini monster would be just the thing to make. A young person could pop it in their pocket and it would be a reminder of the wonderful community of people that they have supporting them and also a nice little gift. So I picked out four purple fabrics and got to work. Here they are, the monsters that will be in the post very shortly!

This monster is my favourite.

All wrapped up and ready to go!

    How do you find the time ? They are all lovely and will give people pleasure to own them. Your monsters are starting to travel, where will they venture next?

  3. What a great idea and for a good cause too. I had a boyfriend once who had epilepsy. Raising awareness is so important. They’ll love your monsters! x
