Sorry I wasn’t able to get this up yesterday…I am feeling much better now and am so excited that we will have some guest posts coming up over the next couple of weeks from the lovely Laura of Lupin. I have been in love with Laura’s handmade felt pieces for some time, but this chica’s creative side goes well beyond her totally awesome shop, Lupin. She has also some wonderful DIY tutorials on her blog, which I love, love, love! But before we jump into her incredible gift wrapping tutorials that I’ll be posting over the next couple of weeks, let’s take some time to get to know Laura (Lupin) herself….
Abstract Felt Mobile or Wall Hanging
Papernstitch: Tell us a little more about yourself.
Papernstitch: Tell us about your shop, Lupin.
Laura: I’ve always enjoyed solving the problem of “how can I make one of those?”, and making stuff has always been my favourite way to while away an afternoon so it’s wonderful to have the chance to make stuff
for a living. I get inspired a lot by the vibrant colours of the felt I use in my work, and draw a lot of my ideas from nature. The more I make the more things I think of to make – one idea sparks another five and it’s just a shame that there are never enough hours in the day to sew them all.
