Amigurumi bunny couple

It`s been a long time since I´ve crocheted those two bunnies – Frilly-pants Bunny and Long-ear Rabbit. I´ve always enjoyed their gleeful and sweet character. And the way you can mix colorful yarn with patterned fabric. Read More

Mermaid doll for my daughter

I made this mermaid doll for my daughter on her 10th birthday. I hadn`t made any dolls for her so long, but this year simply felt like I wanted to do it. I was definitely inspired by so many beautiful crochet mermaids I have seen in the internet.

I used this project for putting some of my yarn leftover in use. Linda liked especially the rainbow colored hair. I had bought this yarn years ago and was already about to through it away, but then got the idea of using it for the hair. I think it was a superb idea!

Fascinated by foxes

crochet fox purse for girls
I made this fox purse as a gift for my niece Johanna, who just celebrated her 6th birthday. She has always been a huge inspiration for me. I think it was only the second purse I´ve ever made and Read More

Paperdoll like angel


After designing 15 new animals for my new book I am longing for making some dolls. Here is my latest project. I thought it would be small and easy, but it wasn`t. After three failures I finally succeeded with the fourth one. She is perfect to me! Read More

Hilda the Ragamuffin


Many of you perhaps know Hilda Hilpharakas from my earlier blog. She was made already in 2010. It`s amazing how many people actually liked her and contacted me to ask for her pattern. Several times I started making this cat and reconstructing the instructions, but for some reason I wasn`t inspired by this old design of mine, so I always left it unfinished. In September I finally pulled myself together and now the pattern is available in my shop, yeah!!!

Wonderful morning with the amazing Doris

It has been quiet lately here in my blog, you probably have noticed it. However, that isn`t because of a creative crises or anything like that :) I am working hard on a new book which will be released in the autumn here in Estonia.

The book will contain something old as well as something new. Patterns that have already been published, some new patterns of toys made earlier which have never become patterns and then of course brand new designs. I want to keep them in secret at the moment.

Today I want to show you some photos of Doris, she is the part of the new book too. Well, is she photogenic! (not sure if people use that word, I mean she looks gorgeous on photos). Perhaps it sounds weird to you, but not all the toys are equally good for photographing. I felt this wonderful “click” with Doris today and instead of one picture made plenty of them to share with all of you.

Lately I haven`t been posting much in my blog or Facebook page. The good news is I have discovered Instagram!!! If you feel curious of what I have been working on lately, then please visit me here: lilleliis_official.

The pattern of “Doris the old-fashioned teddy bear” is available in the shop.

Pony with saddle and bridle

In the beginning of the year I made a birthday gift for my 4-years old niece. Quickly before giving it away I took a few photos and am sharing these with you now. She desperately wanted a pony and I saw this as an opportunity for making something new. The main inspiration was this pony found on the internet. It is made to a pattern by Fran Goreham. Love it!

And here`s the pony I designed. I named her Brita.

Sometimes people ask how long does it take to design and finish a new toy. Well with this pony it took 2 weeks. Read More
