About

annie makes amigurumi & more!

Hello from Hong Kong!
My name is Annie, I am a proud mother and wife. I am a one woman (plus husband ships on my behalf here and there) operation from my home and love things that are made with quality and care.

My love for making amigurumi started around 2001, I got bored with making scarves and hats and wanted to make something that made me smile. I started to make little creatures out of yarn as gifts for my friends. Then eventually, their friends saw my items and asked me to make for them as well.

Suddenly I was taking orders here and there from people that I didn't know. I was encouraged by my friends to open an online shop so that it was easier for people to buy my handmade items.

Then I became a mother and I decided to open up shop so that I can also work while being home for my son. It's been a wonderful journey to have this as my occupation and my son even helps out with the stuffing sometimes!

I love making stories with my dolls in familiar (real) places. I often read my stories to my son and he loves to play "make believe" with the dolls I make. I hope that it brings a smile to your face to know the doll's "origin". :)

My items are made with lots of love. I only make items that make me smile and would want for myself (or my loved ones). My goal is to make the person who holds my toys feel happy. And please know that I am the only person making the dolls. I hope my dolls make you feel loved!

Your purchase helps me make my dream come true! I hope to publish a children's book based on my dolls and their stories. I also use your purchase to help pay for all the fees that I have to maintain this business as well handmade market costs. Designers for my business cards, inserts, packaging, web hosting cost, online fees as well as material cost. And of course other fees that go into running my shop. <3

Thank you for visiting my shop! :) If you should have any questions, please feel free to send me a message!

What do you stuff your dolls with?

I use a high quality 100% pure polyester fiber from Japan. It makes all my amigurumis very soft and hug-able. :)

Where do you purchase your yarn?

Almost all of my yarn is purchased on LoveCrochet.com or LoveKnitting.com. With exception to sparkly yarn component in some of my dolls which are purchased from my local yarn lady in Hong Kong.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my items will be put in a clear plastic bag, with a shop insert card. If you are purchasing a garment, a beautiful card tag is included.

If you are purchasing my octopus, mermaids or jellyfish - they will come with their story. (which are inspired by my son and are told to him as bedtime stories.)
