Lányos Handmade

Home of Lányos Handmade / Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!

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 the wonderful on-line sewing world.  

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 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 #LANYOSHANDMADE.

I love learning about and making vegan, sustainable, repurposed and up-cycled projects. I want to try everything, learn everything and talk about it with you!

You did an outstanding job with my Memory Pillows😘 My dad was an amazing and interesting man and having my idea of making a keepsake with his shirt, a reality, is something very special ❤️ Your attention to detail is exquisite👍. Did I spell that word right 😆 I will come to you again for my next project. (Oct 15/20)


The masks arrived this afternoon!  Thank you so much – they are lovely and wonderful, and so beautifully made.  I am in awe of your skill.  Even the thread matches – ooooh!
I will be the most fashionably masked woman in my ‘hood and so will my best friend up in hers!!  Now if only we could decide who gets which one – they are both so cool
we are having to toss a coin.

Thank you again for your generosity! I can’t wait to go out in my mask – sure beats those boring disposables! (May 14, 2020)
