I became seriously addicted to sewing in the 70’s.
In 2013, I started my sewing blog, Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!! and joined a wonderful on-line sewing community.
In 2015, I took on a #RTWFAST Challenge, no more store bought for me, well … except undergarments, socks, handbags and shoes. I also created and organized my annual #DESIGNINDECEMBER Sewing Challenge (Join us!).
Finally, in 2018, tired of buying handbags and such, I started to design, make and sell my own handbags and accessories at Lányos Handmade, and the PDF sewing patterns for them. Lányos Handmade has its own YouTube Channel. Come join us!
I love learning about and using vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable, up-cycled and/or repurposed materials. I want to try everything, learn everything and talk about it with you!
You can find all my blog posts here! If you think of something you’d like me to blog about, contact me! Thanks for reading and commenting!
Check out the photos and details for each of my creations! If you don’t see a style or material you want here, contact me. Perhaps you have a favourite handbag, tote or make-up bag that you would like to replace. Or a vintage leather coat collecting dust? I can copy your handbag using your repurposed leather, giving you the Handbag of your Dreams! I also have an extensive collection of materials, including hardware, fabric, repurposed leather, cork vegan leather, Kraft-tex and other materials, and can always source new materials to make that special item for you.
Are you a Sewist? Purchase a Lányos Handmade PDF Sewing Pattern here to Sew-It-Yourself!
One of my favourite activities is browsing through my own pattern collection trying to decide what to sew next! Add one of the PDF sewing patterns from Lányos Handmade to your collection and make it even sweeter! For everything I design and sew, I draw up a Sewing Pattern too, so you can Sew-It-Yourself! I love it when one of my patterns is chosen for your new project.
