I became seriously addicted to sewing in the 70’s. In 2013, I took up Blogging about Sewing. In 2015, I took on the #RTWFAST Challenge, no more store bought for me, well … except undergarments, socks and such, handbags and shoes. I also created and organized my annual #DESIGNINDECEMBER Challenge (Join us!). Then in 2018, tired of buying Handbags, I started to design, make and sell my own Handbags and accessories at #LANYOSHANDMADE. I love learning about and making vegan, sustainable, repurposed and up-cycled projects. I want to try everything, learn everything and share it with you!

I love my two wonderful beanie hats from Lanyos Handmade. I have a burgundy one and a black one. Solid colours work with anything. They are perfect for “bad hair days” and keep my ears warm in this windy Victoria weather. Thank you Linda – thinking of of a wild paisley beanie in the New Year. Thanks Linda. (November 27, 2019)

I got a Lanyos bag over a year ago and I still love it. It has everything you are looking for in a bag, ie zipper pockets, credit card slots, cash and coin pockets. It also has 2 outside pockets, I use one to carry my cell phone for easy access. My sister in law saw my purse and asked me to get her one. If you want, you can make your own bag cause you can simply buy the pattern. Great bags for a great prices. (December 22, 2019)
