Featured Shop: LBG Studio

*****This giveaway is now closed*****

I am thrilled to be featuring such a cute etsy shop this week. LBG Studio carries a handmade conglomeration of pouches, handbags, kids clothing and lots of other fun treasures! The best part of the shop is the sweet shop owner, Vanessa. Looking through her shop, it is easy to see (and fall in love with) Vanessa's impeccable taste. Just look at some of these gorgeous creations!

I adore this color combination and the ruffles!


I am ALWAYS making lists, so I really need to get one of these.

Love the fabric!

Here is what Vanessa has to say about herself:

Hi all! Like lots of fellow Etsy sellers, I'm a stay (work!) at home mom. I have an energetic and incredibly cute 2 1/2 year old little girl. I left behind a brief and not so exciting job as a radiological technologist when my daughter Sydney was born. The original plan was for me to go back to work after a short maternity leave but she had other plans. Born almost two months early at 3 lbs and 10 oz, there was no way I could leave the little squirt with someone else all day. She wasn't ready and neither was I. I told my husband I would scrimp and save and get creative if he'd agree to my staying home. Fast forward two and half years and here I am! Other than dabbling in sewing back in high school, I didn't really get started until last February. My daughter had just turned one and for my birthday, I wanted a sewing machine. It's been non stop since I got my hands on that machine. Shortly after making my first few dresses, I started selling things I'd made to friends and acquaintances. In August of last year, after lots of deliberation, I opened my Etsy shop, LBG studio. I LOVE sewing and tackling new projects and techniques so there's always something new popping up in the shop. I've "met" some amazing people both through my shop and the craft blogging community. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for both!

LBG Studio has a great tutorial to share with us too! Check out this precious patchwork pencil pouch.


The supplies needed include:

• Unbleached cotton (Osnaburg) or linen
• 4 small scraps of cotton print fabric (large enough for 2.5 x 2.5 squares)
• larger pieces of cotton print for lining
• heavyweight fusible fleece
• 8 inch or longer nylon zipper (the longer the easier to work with!)
• small length of ribbon (optional)
• sewing machine
• thread (I prefer a thread that blends in with the unbleached cotton but go with whatever floats your boat)
• iron
• rotary cutter and mat (you can make paper templates and cut with scissors as well)

The rest of the tutorial can be found here.

On top of this precious tutorial that LBG Studio has shared with us, she would also like to give something away to Noodles & Milk readers! Vanessa is generously giving away this cute, padded clutch that is perfect for carrying just the essentials. With two pockets, it is easy to stay organized and the flap closure keeps things secure. Use it to bring along your phone, cash, and cards or make up. A matching wristlet key fob is included!
