How to order custom-made item?

When applying for a custom-made item you have to consider the waiting time which depends on the amount of work we have at that moment, usually 4-8 weeks. Shipping international orders takes some extra weeks (1-3 weeks depending on the destination).

If you wish to order a special item you should consider the following:
– making author pieces is a time-consuming project for which I only have a limited amount of time,
– custom-made orders are more expensive than the toys prepared for sale.

Send an e-mail at so we can discuss all the relevant details (the possibility to implement your order, time schedule, price etc).

Safety and maintenance

Lilleliis toys are made by hand and therefore they do not meet any security requirements or standards. These toys are made with love, all tiny details are fastened with care. Thanks to the small parts (safety eyes, buttons, ribbons) you should be careful when giving the toys to a little child and not leave them unattended.

We recommend handwash for handmade toys, since then the yarn retains the best qualities. Use warm water and only a small amount of detergent. Do not twist, just squeeze! Dry on a towel – depending on the yarn consistence and size of the item the final drying might take several days.

What are lilleliis patterns like?

Lilleliis patterns are thorough step-by-step tutorials with several photos included to make it as easy and pleasant as possible when working with the pattern. It takes weeks to compile the text, make photos, remove any mistakes and give the pattern to be tested by another person for making sure it all works smoothly.
Lilleliis patterns have thousands of fans around the world and have received a lot of positive feedback.

How to choose pattern language?

Some of the patterns in lilleliis shop are available in different languages. Please read the description of the item before purchase to find out if the pattern is translated to the language you need. After the purchase you will receive download links to all languages, so it`s up to you which one to download.

About skill levels

Lilleliis patterns are divided into three skill levels:
easy – patterns for beginners. These patterns usually work up using only one crochet stitch, sewing the parts together is also easy.
intermediate – patterns for those who already have some previous experience. These patterns use different crochet stitches, sewing the parts together and giving the final finish might also be somewhat more complicated.
advanced – complicated projects that require expertise and patience. These patterns use a combination of several different crochet stitches and other more complex techniques.

May I translate and share your free pattern?

Yes, I´ve allowed people to do that, but only if we have agreed on it before and if you

  • make a proper translation following exactly the original material
  • mark yourself as the translator right under the author of the pattern (name and website if you wish to)
  • send me a Word version of the translation so I could share it on my website as well.
