Delicate designs with an illustrative edge - highly detailed surface pattern and illustration, inspired by life and created with love. Sarah Fleming is a graduate of Cleveland College of Art & Design, where she studied Textiles and Surface Design, specialising in design for the home furnishings and greetings market. Inspired by the detail and beautiful patterns found in nature and her surroundings, Sarah is motivated to achieve beautiful, highly informative observational drawings. She showed an interest in Art from a very early age and has developed a great passion for Textiles and Surface Design. This huge passion spurs her on to work extremely hard, full of enthusiasm to create new and exciting design ideas. Sarah has developed a detailed, tight drawing style which helps her to achieve her beautiful observational drawings. However, she is also able to work in a very sketchy, illustrative style too - showing her as a very versatile designer, capable of adapting where relevant to confidently produce designs for both the commercial and more niche markets.

Feature Friday - Kate Marsden


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

Guildhall Plate

 Park Hill Cushions

 Fabric Scraps

I love little collections of fabric scraps; they are such cute presents for crafty people like myself!

Cross stitich

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!
