hank and frank

this morning i awoke to more snow. we have had snowstorm after snowstorm here in philadelphia these past weeks, and though it is pretty, at this point i am kind of over it. i want to be able to ride my bike every day again and i want to see some cherry blossoms, dammit.

i am still working on a new set of sewn illustrations for a show i have with adriane dalton that opens on the second friday in march, so i have not been doing nearly as much madebyhank-ing as i would like.

i apologize that the virtual shelves of my shop have been so bare lately. i added a few zipper purses this morning, and i have some new shoulder bags in the works, and will hopefully have a shop update together by this monday. there will be some smaller shoulder bags with longer straps that can be worn across the chest and some tote-style bags, as well as a few tough ruffles bags.

also, i received such an overwhelming response to this bag (thank you everyone!) that i decided to make a few in similar fabrics to add to the shop as well. i will post sneak peek photos over the weekend and an exact time when it is a little closer and i have a better idea of when i can finish everything.

hope everyone is keeping warm and having fun!

"8,699 users call madebyhank a favorite." Hot damn! How does it feel to be the belle of the ball?

I rode my bike Wednesday night. I had to fix a flat to do it but I knew I wouldn't get another chance for yet another week!

Thanks, Katie! I feel sooooo lucky to have gotten the mustard lace Nora bag! It is absolutely beautiful. I haven't even been able to bring myself to use it yet!!! Can't wait to see the new bags.

Man girl you read my mind. I have been searching for an across the shoulder bag like that and have yet to find one unique enough for my tastes. Save me one and I will watch Frank forever! :)
