Since 2009 lilleliis company is designing handmade toys and crochet patterns for moms to make special toys for their kids. Our toys are combining Japanese amigurumi technique with teddy bear tradition so popular in Europe. Bigger than the classical amigurumis, they still are very simple to make. Our toys are inspired by children and meant for playing.
Lilleliis toys are valuated by those who are seeking for unique handmade gifts. Many design stores in Estonia have recognized the items and are offering our toys to their clients.
Lilleliis patterns have thousands of fans around the world. In spring 2014 Estonian publisher Varrak released Mari-Liis`s first book „Võluväega mänguasjad“ which has had a huge success. In 2016 Amigurumipatterns.net released a slightly reduced version of it in English (“Magical Amigurumi Toys”) and Dutch (“Betoverende Amigurumiknuffels”). In 2016 Mari-Liis already published a new book in her native language which was named “Kaisuloomakirg”.
