Thursday, April 5th, 2012

you are probably familiar with anri and their carved figurines, but did you know they made furniture at some point? i didn’t, until i found these three cuties… i found the cabinet first, then the end table and stool about a year later. i can’t really find any information on the furniture, i did read […]

truly beautiful clothes

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

never go out of fashion i found this at a junk shop on a cross country road trip almost 20 years ago, it’s been hanging in my various workrooms since then. the artwork really amuses me. it was a nino cerruti ad in a 1979 issue of W. here’s to making truly beautiful clothes in […]

jumbo sized flower loom flowers

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

perusing the aisles of the 99cent store the other day, i saw these packages of brightly colored polyethelene rope. my first thought was that it looked and felt like jumbo sized plastic raffia. my second thought was how awesome would it be to make jumbo sized flower loom flowers with this stuff? totally awesome!! i wondered […]

bateas and skirts

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

when i made this skirt i knew i liked it (of course!) but i didn’t know it would become my go-to skirt…i’ve been wearing it all the time, it’s fun to wear and so easy to throw on and go out. i bought these pairs of embroidered pockets downtown years before i started madewithlovebyhannah, but they […]

crocheted hex sign rugs

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

some motifs i find myself a little obsessed with throughout the years, hex signs are one of them… rug is 28 inches across. this is actually the second pattern i made, after a little miscalculating the first one is turning out huge…i’m estimating it’s going to be 4 or 5 feet across when i’m finished! i just […]
