Noodles & Milk Review and Giveaway

I am pretty excited to be doing a giveaway this week for the fabulous Noodles & Milk


Have you seen her cute patterns? Baby items, pants, dresses, skirts, the possibilities are endless! Her patterns are easy to follow and she even adds beginner's tips for those that would need them (and you might even learn something new in the process like I did!) 


Sabrina is a stay at home mama of two with a seven week old baby boy and a 2 1/2 year old daughter.  Prior to staying home, she had the greatest job on earth. She was a buyer for a major jewelry retailer. Yes, she got paid to play with jewelry and travel the world- oh and it was just icing on the cake that she had a super boss, the best coworkers and a non-existent commute to work. She had no plans of anything changing. When her daughter was 3 weeks old, she looked at her husband with tears and told him that she could not leave her with strangers and that she had to quit her job. They promptly sold their house and downsized and the rest "is history"




Here's a little bit of info about her shop:
After about 4 months of staying home with my daughter, I started to get antsy. I had no creative outlet. I had nothing that was "mine". I desperately needed something. So, I decided to take up a new hobby- something that I have always wanted to try-sewing. That is right, if you do the math, I have only been sewing about 2 years! To say that I took right to it would be an understatement. Within a few weeks I had an enormous fabric stash and could not stop creating and trying new things. Within about a month I started selling custom baby gifts on ebay (yuck) and then etsy (yea). The shop grew really quickly and I loved all the custom work I was creating for little ones. Custom gifts grew into custom clothing. In January, when I found out I was pregnant with our son, I knew that the shop had to change. I knew that at least in the beginning, I would not have the hours at naptime and nighttime to sew custom orders. I decided right then to try pattern writing. I have found pattern writing to be as addicting as sewing. I love it! I can't say the shop will always be patterns and that I will never go back to custom orders, but for now I am loving the new direction that Noodles & Milk has gone.
Well I am definitely loving the direction Noodles & Milk has gone too! Isn't this Sadie Scrappy Peasant dress adorable on Ellie?




I loved the scrappy strap!




I also thought the pattern for the diaper clutch was great...I have tried to make them without a pattern and they are a pain to think through! This way, the thinking has been done for you!



and this Elizabeth outfit is adorable!



Which one would you pick? Go to her shop, pick a favorite and then comment to let me know and you could win a pattern! Get another entry for following her blog and/or becoming a fan on facebook 


And if you are interested in purchasing her great patterns, she is offering a code: "sparklinbecks" for $1.00 off each pattern. Valid for 2 weeks! These would be great gifts!
