Made with Little Smilemakers Studio Fabric // June 2015

It is so exciting to see a finished project after working hard on a new collection or a series of illustrations for our clients. But with finished fabric designs it is even a bigger surprise to see what customers create. To see how final products evolve when people put their own creative energy in there is amazing.

I love how Little Smilemakers creations are the foundation for other creatives all around the world to work with. So here is our monthly blog post that features some creative results from United Kingdom, Australia and United States. This is our new June selection, this month with a colorful cripsy clean theme. If you browse around on etsy for some kids fashion you are very likely to stumble upon some Little Smilemakers. Most creatives with small home based businesses sell their projects via Etsy. So take a look and see if there is something for your little one too.

Adorable owls home decor
If you take a close look you can see this owls fabric is part of a large owl pillow. So cute! This cuddly owl was made by Andrea who owns a the All Things Owls Big Cartel shop where she sells her cute cuddly owls and fun kids fashion. She also attends local markets so if you are living in Australia, I know, it is huge, check dates and locations where she will be selling her owls on her Facebook page. Take a look in her webshop, maybe you can find something for your little one!

Summer dancing ice cream-ballet
Look how adorable this little tiny dancer looks in her ice-cream print. We haven't seen a lot of finished products made with this print but we love this Little Cowboys and Indians leotard. If you are looking for some original ballet fashion for your little one check out their Etsy shop. There are also some amazing rompers and cute shorts in Brittany Kleiss shop. We totally love her quirky prints and cool style.

Little Lady Bug Nappies
Bambino Mio is a company that specialized in baby goods and last year we collaborated for their first patterned Miosolo reusable diaper series. After launching four Little Smilemakers Studio designs last year we were asked to add another batch of designs to their adorable baby range. This spring four new designs were launched. This is still one of our personal favorites: The Lady Bugs. The photo was made by one of Bambino Mio's happy customers.

Cactus garden soft soles
When Europe prepares for summer, Australia is looking forward to the colder season. This month we discovered another great soft sole brand. OhBoeys is an online store based in Melbourne, Australia that features locally designed handmade products for all little ones. The motivation and inspiration for all these tiny creations in this little shop came from Sylvia's boys. Each product is unique and meticulously created with lots of care and love. Their fabrics are sourced from all over the world. Wanna grab one of these cuties? Check Oh Boeys gorgeous website.

We have already seen a lot of awesome sewing projects made by Little Smilemakers fabric customers. We made a little selection out of the dozen photographs that were sent to us or that we were tagged in. Cute home decor items. Personalized bedding, scarfs, leggings and head bands. So much to choose from! If you'd like to be featured in on of our monthly "made with..." posts. Please send us your images.
