- Make your own Paola Pagano Studio's fabricI am running a little experiment here. I selected these 5 patterns from different collections to be printed in small amounts. They can be printed on any fabric listed and any quantity you want, even just one meter, so if you are quilting or want to make you own bathing suite or a cute onesie/shirt/dress for your kid/mom/friend/whatever or a couple of pillows you can order yours by DM here on IG or Fb or via email
