foggydress_hobag_sienna It’s been one year since I began blogging at Foggy Dress, and I wanted to do a nice giveaway to a few of you readers! I’m giving away a this beauty, who started out as a vintage blouse:foggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_sienna  And turned into an awesome HoBag:foggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_siennafoggydress_hobag_sienna I sewed on a thrift store belt ^^ and I’m loving the look.

I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and like to make sure it’s sturdy and will last. This bag took about 5-6 hours to make, from figuring out the design, to cutting it, to messing up and starting over, to figuring out how it all sews together, to…

A HObag named ZANE

foggydress_hobag_zane Remember this gorgeous fabric I instagrammed about? And remember how I started naming my HObags? Just want to make sure you remember everything that has ever gone on in my life. Good. Well look at me I finished her! For some reason the name Zane popped into my head and it stuck. Ok who wants Zane??

foggydress_hobag_zane I was inspired by all the boxy, big envelop clutches that I covet so much. Although it isn’t as stiff as those, it still holds enough shape to appreciate all those straight lines and edgy corners. UGH this print is jut perfect!

a HObag named Flora

hobags_florahobags_flora I’ve decided to start naming my HObags.

This one is named Flora for obvious reasons.

(Psst– If you are new to the blog and don’t know what a HObag is, read this)

hobags_flora hobags_flora ^^ (gorgeous fabric) ^^

I picked up this blouse at a thrift store in Utah, when we were visiting family over summer vacation. Since all HObags are made from thrifted clothing/items, I am constantly stopping at thrift stores, espeically when I’m traveling.

hobags_florahobags_flora I made the braided handle out of the sleeves of the blouse. The bottom of the blouse was sewn with a scrunchy border that I almost overlooked, until my Aunt (the seamstress) gestured toward it and asked “will this be the opening of the bag?”

Uhhh…of course!

I am so happy to be surrounded by such creative people.

a hexagon-al HObag

I made another HObag!

If you have any old, old fabric that you want to throw out…give it to me! My friend had this^^ wonderful fabric in a “throw away” box, which I immediately snatched up. I thought it turned out pretty cool! I don’t know if you can tell, but there are three opening’s in the top (the corners are sewn together, where the handles are) and the bottom three sides are sewn closed. I love the print and the handle/fabric string that came with it. The hexagon shape is so fun, I might have to make another HObag just like it!
