One Fabric Three ways with JiJi's

I am totally swooning over this fabric! It so perfectly sums up the feeling of summer—or perhaps the exact feeling I had today when I looked out the windows of my office at the enormous Iowa sky over the trees and gardens around us. The fabric is Alexander Henry Pink Secret Garden, shown on three different style of bags from JiJi's Creative Designs. Above is the mini clutch.

This one here is the Hobo, which appears big enough to serve as a work bag or a purse (the best combination as far as I'm concerned!). And the one below is her Carryall, which is the most popular style that she sells. JiJi is Korean, but was born in Peru and eventually moved to Brooklyn where she still lives. She sews because she finds it rewarding to be able to give the people she loves things she's made (I do too!) and when she's not sewing, she surfs. Near NYC. Totally impressed!
I really enjoy seeing how one fabric can be used in three very different styles—though for the record, she had many other lovely fabrics so please head over to her etsy shop to see more than just the one I'm obsessed with!
