Made with Little Smilemakers Studio Fabric // January 2016

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.

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. We 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 Australia, Sweden and Poland. This is our new January selection. Take a look and see if there is something for your little one too.

Sprout Patterns // sewing inspiration
In 2015 Sprout Patterns launched their website and within a few months time have added numerous new patterns to their collection. On the website you can easily pick a pattern, then select a Spoonflower fabric, you will get just the right amount, and get those delivered to your doorstep. So if you need some sewing inspiration or would like to make something for your kid and don't want to end up with a pile of left over fabric this might be great for you. Sprout patterns has some fun creations up on their website to take a look at. Some patterns are fun to mix and match fabric with, they all have cute visuals so you can also check out the result and have a clear impression about the cut and shape. The cactus blouse was made with the biscayne blouse pattern designed by Hey June Handmade and contains our very popular cactus summer fabric that is available via Spoonflower. So, nothing to do this weekend? Go grab your sewing machine and start making new beautiful fashion and accessories with Sprout Patterns.
