All of the organizers have the same base pattern pieces and by changing the stitching on the pockets you can personalize it to fit exactly what you need. We have made four organizer rolls with different functions to get your... Continue reading

Hi Anita, I am so happy that you like it. I have made two so far and carry them in my purse. I like them so much that I haven't been able to give them away yet. For my second one I used the Cherry Lipgloss Pure and White Rick Rack around the edge. It looks like a vintage valentine. I would love to see the pictures of what you make. Thank you so much for your kind comment. From Megan With Love

Thinking about that special someone? How about making this cute little heart envelope bag and hiding a special little surprise inside. A quick sew that can be reused over and over and will always remind that person how much you... Continue reading

Hi Ana, I am so happy that you are joining me in my French state of mind. The polaroids tucked around my photos and scrapbooks are fabrics. They are Coquette designed by AGF In-House Studio and Dreaming in French designed by Pat Bravo. The background is a combination of vintage letter scans, doodles, and flowers from those fabrics. I hope that answers your question. If there is anything else I can do to help please feel free to ask. From Megan With Love

Hello Lindsay, Thank you so much for your kind words. The idea of a table runner sounds like a perfect sewing project for me to do this weekend. That is proof that inspiration can truly come from anywhere, (even a kind comment on a post!) Thank you, From Megan With Love

Hi Marija, Your garden is just beautiful. I live in a townhouse at the moment and do not have such an amazing luxury. I am truly jealous of the beauty you have growing around you. Being in Florida I miss the transition of the four seasons. I used to love the drives though the back roads of Amish country in the autumn. Your dogs are adorable, it is so sweet that they enjoy road trips. I have a pet bunny who drives with me north to my mother's house. He is a lot less enthused with the road trip idea. Thank you so much for your comment. It was so nice to meet you. From Megan With Love

Hello Friends, This holiday season I dreamed of travel and visiting my Mother's house. The snow downtown in the city and blanketing the forest in her backyard has Colored Me Inspired to sew. Inspiration can strike at any time. I... Continue reading
Hi Missy K, Thank you for letting me know that you love the gizmo wallet. I do too, and I take mine everywhere within my purse. I did actually make my sweater. I am not much of a knitter but have lots of practice with my Martha Stewart Crafts Knit and Weave Loom Kit. That sweater was my first attempt at cable knitting on a loom. I love loom knitting because it helps me keep track of my count and gives me a nice clean edge. I am not that skilled with knitting needles. The sweater is just a series of squares that are sewn together on a sewing machine and serged on the inside. If I can loom knit than anyone can. I would love to get better with needles and learn to cable knit this with no sewing. Thank you so much for your comment, Megan

Hi Marsha, The gizmo wallet is really fun. You can even personalize it by moving pockets or changing their size to fit exactly what you need. I carry mine in my bag when I travel to keep everything protected. Megan

Hi Mary, I double checked the recipe and it is exactly the one I used. It may depend on the pan you used, I bake mine in Nordic Ware Mini Bundt. It makes about 8 mini cakes. It is supposed to be a more dense centered cake but the edges should be fluffy. If you would like the fudge center but need the cake to rise more you can try adding 1 tsp of baking powder. If you would like a fluffier cake recipe you can try this one: 5 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup whole milk 1 cup sour cream 4 sticks unsalted butter 3 cups sugar 8 large eggs 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Preheat oven to 325 Whisk dry ingredients together (dry mixture) Mix milk and sour cream together (wet mixture) In mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy Beat in eggs one at a time Alternate adding wet and dry mixtures to mixing bowl  Stir in vanilla Stir about 50 strokes until batter looks shiny Bake 55-60 minutes until toothpick comes out almost clean I hope that this has helped!

Hi Dawn, My favorite jars to use are the Ball Quilted Jelly Jars. They are the 8 oz jars and come in a 12 count box. You can use any canning jars that you happen to have on hand. With the 8 oz jars I usually fill all 12 with a little left over for decorating but sometimes I use less jars if I want to make extra thick crust. Enjoy!
