Made with Little Smilemakers Studio Fabric // July 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 New Zealand, USA, Italy and UK. This month we selected a whole bunch of summer fabrics, our most popular summer fabrics of this season, turned into beautiful items. We have selected a cool summer swimsuit, a colorful fruity pouch, some cool kids clothes and some glamping items. Take a look and see if there is something for your little one too. This is our July top 5.
