Hello, I’m Linda Maki, owner, designer & sewist at “LÁNYOS HANDMADE”, also the sewing blogger behind the blog “Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!” and the sewing challenge #designindecember. It’s all about creating with a sewing machine!
Now let me tell you about my new shop, “Lányos Handmade”. My shop is stocked with 100% handmade-by-me items made with vegan, sustainable, up-cycled and repurposed materials. These items are usually sewn up on one of my many rescued-from-the-landfill Vintage Sewing Machines - Marika my Ford deLuxe, Winnie my Singer 221 Featherweight, Amber my Singer 421G, Barbie my Singer 500 and Ilona my Singer 15-88 treadle! I thrive on the challenge of taking a found fabric, zipper or leather coat and repurposing it into something different, beautiful and loved, then following it all up with a sewing pattern!
I will be posting here available handbags and accessories, some ready made and some custom orders. If you’d like to discuss a different style or fabric, contact me! We can talk about fabrics, styles, timelines, cost.
Prices are based on size, style, details, time spent, materials and hardware. Cork vegan leather and faux suede, faux leather and faux vinyl are expensive and will add to the cost. Sometimes repurposed leather, vinyl and suede are not easy to source and will add to the cost.
Quotes so far have been from $15 for a fabric pouch to $200 for a large cork tote bag or backpack (CDN). Taxes are included, shipping is added on. Some Victoria, BC, customers might want to avoid shipping costs by meeting me for coffee!
Payment options are Shopify or Paypal. Both give protection to the buyer and the seller and use major credit cards, and you can complete the order as a guest. I require a 50% non-refundable deposit on all custom orders, when the order is made, and the remaining amount is due upon completion.
