Unlike classic amigurumis that are usually made following a pattern my creatures are not based on patterns so they are one of a kind, unique creations. I try to be very careful with every material I choose for my creatures in order to get the exact texture and appearance I'm looking for - I try to choose the perfect yarn or mohair and I sometimes made my own yarn balls combining different wools and threads. I think this is really important to get their furry look. All my little creatures come from the world of dreams, a place full of magic and good wishes.

All of my little creatures are made with love and care in a non-smoking home.
