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