Made with Little Smilemakers Studio Fabric // June 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 prints. Most creatives with small home based businesses sell their projects via internet and tag us via Instagram. So we see some amazing things pop up in our feed every month. 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, The Netherlands, Japan, UK and Slovenia. This month we selected a whole bunch of Scandinavian inspired fabrics, turned into beautiful items. We have some cool lions, all right, these are not so Scandinavian maybe, some cute bunnies in pink and monotone black and whites and some Nordic birds. Take a look and see if there is something for your little one too. This is our June top 5.
