What is your crafting story?
When I was a kid if I didn’t have my nose in a book I was almost definitely busy making something. I made all sorts of different crafty projects with whatever I could get my hands on (cereal boxes, old clothes, scraps of wrapping paper, etc.) but I especially loved hand sewing and making things from felt.
Then years later, after University, I rediscovered some of my crafty childhood hobbies and decided to make felt ornaments for my friends as Christmas gifts. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up opening a little online shop selling my felt designs… which gradually turned into a bigger shop full of felt-y things… which then led to what I do now: designing patterns and writing tutorials for books, blogs, and magazines. I miss sending out customer orders sometimes, but I love the challenge of working on something different each week!
What do you enjoy most about working with felt?
I love how quick and easy felt is to work with: no fraying edges, no fancy equipment, you just cut and sew! I also love the process of hand stitching – curling up in front of the TV in the evening with a bit of sewing is so relaxing and a great way to unwind after a busy day.
Where do you get your inspiration for your projects?
All sorts of places! Sometimes I’m inspired by the material itself (“what could I make with this gorgeous color?”), sometimes by something I’ve seen (“ooh, I wonder if I could make that from felt?”) and other times ideas get sparked by projects I’ve already completed – ideas that didn’t quite work become the seeds of new ideas, or I try a technique that I liked and I wonder what else I could use it for. I often think of creativity like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it gets.
Do you have a favorite pattern in your book, Super-cute Felt, and why?
Honestly, it changes all the time but I’m particularly fond of the Cat and Mouse (and Cheese!) Puppets – they make me smile a lot (especially that silly cheese puppet). My family is big fans of the Gingerbread Cookie Garland; at their request, I’ve stitched several sets of Gingerbread Cookie ornaments as Christmas gifts!
Laura Howard is looking forward to a romantic future with Midsomer Murders. As the series reaches its 10th series, happiness is just around the corner for Cully – as she falls in love with the manager of a rock band. Explains Laura: “Cully’s role is to show the other side of Barnaby, and obviously you can’t shoehorn the character into things that don’t work because she is part of the domestic scene. So it’s been a little bit quiet for her in recent episodes but that’s all set to change when Cully meets her intended.
“Sam Hazeldine is playing my boyfriend and he’s charming. We meet at a festival and he’s in the music industry, so Barnaby’s not keen at first because of his preconceptions about musicians. But he becomes more established as a boyfriend as things go on, then eventually we’ll have the engagement and the wedding.” Laura is delighted about Cully’s newfound love – and hopes it might also lead to a wedding in real life with her boyfriend Nwora.
“I live with my feller and we’ve been together for about two years and we’ve talked about getting married. It’s definitely something that we’d like to do but he’s just started his own business and for the last six months that’s really been the focus. I think it’s a male thing – they want to be grounded and sorted before they go off and ask your dad. “We’ve talked about what we’d like to do and where we’d like to do it, but as for actual rings on the finger – not yet. But at least I get to try it out on telly and see how it feels!”
“It’s lovely to be a part of Midsomer Murders. When I was offered the role in the pilot, I had no idea what it would turn into. Here we are 10 years on – it’s been fabulous. It’s not really like work for me because I might only have one long day a week. The directors are great, John is delightful and Jane Wymark and I get to hang out together. It sounds a bit clichéd to say it’s like a family, but it can’t help but be like that after 10 years.
“The episodes that stick in my mind are the ones where I have things to do with the guest actors. It’s a real treat when you get involved, see the wonderful guest actors do their stuff and hang out with them when we’re not filming.”
