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!

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)

Great to see so much choice here Linda. The 4 masks you made for our family have been riding around in the car, in and out of stores in good weather and bad, washed many many times and they’re still as good as new. Thank you!! (June 8, 2020)
