About me

 Hello everybody!
I am Lilia Shaevitch or just LilikSha.
I live in a small country Israel in a Bible town of Ashkelon just on the seashore of the Mediterranean.
We are four of us – my beloved husband (an abstract painter), by son aged of 12 years and my pretty toddler daughter (who is only 1 year old).

I never liked studying in school and adored everything connected with crafts, cooking and photography.
In 2002 being pregnant with my son I learnt to crochet and just after that I found my passion to crocheted toys (known as Amigurumi toys). At the end of 2002 I created my own brand of toys that I called LilikSha Toys.

I am keen on creating new characters, bright, colorful, unusual as if they came from children’s dreams.
I make a lot of patterns with plenty of detailed photos. Very often my new patterns are provided with links to video resources where I show how to make some specific details. I always try to make my patterns understandable for the very beginners who are just starting learning to crochet. I absolutely love watching photos of toys made using my patterns.
I invite you all to visit my magic world of crocheted toys and dolls.

You can find my on-line pattern shops here:

All the best,
