Learn how to sew, craft and make all sorts of fabulous gifts and accessories with felt. Felt is a really easy material to work with because it doesn't fray when cut, and it comes in lots of great colours.
Laura Howard is a craft guru who is particularly fond of felt. Laura set up her online store Lupin Handmade in 2007 (lauralupinhandmade.com), selling a range of adorable felt brooches, flower headbands, animal masks and so much more! Her stunning creations are available on Etsy and she has over 6,000 followers on Facebook. Her blog, Bugs & Fishes (bugsandfishes.blogspot.co.uk), also displays her beautiful work and even offers the occasional free pattern! All of her felted masterpieces are 100% hand-stitched and all of the pieces are cut by hand from her own original patterns. Laura's work has been featured in a number of magazines, including Cloth, Metro, Vogue and Sew Hip. Laura is also the author of Super-Cute Felt Animals. She is based in Gloucester.
