I'm Laura "Lupin" Howard. I'm a designer, maker and craft writer living near London, England. I drink a lot of tea, am partial to a nice bit of cake, and I love to make stuff.

When I'm not busy making things, I'm usually writing about making things. I've written two books about felt crafting: Super-Cute Felt and Super-Cute Felt Animals.

I also share lots of free crafty projects on my blog, Bugs & Fishes, and write tutorials for magazines and craft books. Click here to read more about me and my work.


Visit my shop on Etsy for instant pattern downloads and occasional sample sales. My shop is looking a little empty at the moment but I'm busy behind the scenes working on lots of new things!



Follow me on social media for lots of colourful, crafty updates. You'll find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook
