Megan's Profile

About

Hi! I'm Megan! By day, I'm an analytical chemist. By night, I am an analytical seamstress. I burn the midnight LED bulb meticulously sewing my blankets and other cuddly soft items. Although I have only been an Etsy seller for a short time, I have been on a sewing machine on and off since sometime before Kindergarten. Currently I have four machines going in my little nook, which is a far leap from where I started.

Thanks to my kiddos, I started this shop. My son had a blanket that needed a twin because he used it so much, so I made one. My daughter stole it and took her first two-hour nap, then nursed like a champ while cuddled in it. I made her one (with my collegiate colors – go UK!), then both of my god daughters wanted one. When my best friend’s grandmother had a stroke, I made her one as well. Now, I use my daughter to determine how awesome the blankets are. If…

If the thumb pops in her mouth before the blanket even touches her hands, I know it’s a winner and it goes into my shop.

I LOVE what I do and I'd be happy to explore creative options with you. I'm not the end-all, be-all in the creative department - look through Etsy and you'll definitely know this is true. If there is something that I can change to make a better product, I am absolutely willing to do it. Custom fabric or design? No problem.

I also try to buy as much material as I can from Etsy sellers and local home-grown stores. Trying to spread the love!

In my free time (ahem, I forget what that is nowadays), I like to wrestle with my kids, try to give my son a haircut, and eat brownie batter with my daughter. My new fat baby daughter is keeping me busy, but happy. My husband gets a few kisses here and there as long as he helps cut out some fabric :0). Since I have three kids, a messy husband, a full-time job and the blanket biz, I'm a little frazzled at times. I'd make myself a super mom cape, but my sewing machine is rarely being unoccupied. If you don't see any items in my shop, I'm at the tail-end of my lead time and I'll have everything back up in a week or so.
