You could say I started because I'm a fabric hoarder or "collector" - that sounds better.
But it all really started out of a desire to have a pretty pink apron which I found difficult to source. So one day In 2007 I took my scissors to my pair of rose printed Laura Ashley curtains and lo and behold a couple of hours later, I was wearing my latest up-cycled creation while baking a cake for tea.

Friends liked it so much, they asked me to make them a bespoke one too. Their friends then wanted some and by word of mouth my designs went from strength to strength, so much so that everyone started asking " What's Mrs Madden making now?"
My Brand name was born - mrs madden makes - sort of rolls off the tongue and is unique to and registered to me.

I had recently retired from a career in the fashion industry and I was looking for something to occupy my time...so I began doing craft fairs and opened my Etsy shop to sell fabrics initially and also launched my website. I now also have a business page on Facebook which works really well and attracts a lot of ladies who bake who are looking for bespoke aprons and accessories. I make quite a few stock lines but also have an order book and waiting list for commissions.

As with all of my products a lot of care and love goes into the process for making each one.
The fun starts with the fabrics where they are lovingly themed in colours to create a unique co-ordinated look.
Each apron is designed by me, is a one-off creation and has a top quality quirky embroidery.
On a serious note, all fabrics are suitable for machine washing and all stress points are double stitched for durability.
To complete the process every component and stage of sewing is double checked before the products are lovingly wrapped in tissue and parcelled off with a kiss and a cuddle to their new
homes..

Thanks for shopping with me! I really do appreciate it.

All of my fabric products are machine pieced and some parts are hand-sewn. I take great pride in the uniqueness of each product I create.
Care of your product:
I recommend that the more delicate items are hand washed, but generally they can be machine washed at 30 degrees and line dried.
