Kate Marsden is the lovely lady behind 'Made by Mrs M'.
Kate worked for a Law Firm after studying Fashion and Textiles at Lincoln College in the mid 1990s, but soon realised she needed an outlet for her creativity. This led her to take part in a few short courses in textiles, painting and ceramics at Chelsea College of Art - ending in her developing the 'Made by Mrs M' label.
Surface Pattern Design is Kate's real passion. Her paintings and sketches create such lovely quirky, interesting patterns for a range of products - fabric, ceramics, cross stitch and knitting.
Here are a few of my favourite pieces from her newly updated website Made By Mrs M
Park Hill Cushions
I love little collections of fabric scraps; they are such cute presents for crafty people like myself!
I find Kate's cross stitch pieces so interesting. Each one uses her definitive style but are still different, which makes me look forward to seeing the next as you never know what great ideas she will come up with next!
Screen Prints - 50's city
Scribble cups, saucers and plates
These patterns and products are available to buy through Kate's website, Folksy and Society 6 - definitely worth a peek!!
Keep the great work coming Kate!
