Happy 3rd Birthday Mary's Amiland

Time flies and Mary's Amiland celebrates its 3rd birthday!
This year I have let my creativeness to be free and ventures where it wanted to. I have designed so many unexpected characters that I was taken aback myself not knowing where they came from.
I feel gifted to be able to create my own amigurumis, such an enjoyable art.
I hope you are having fun at following my journey in this fantastic world!

Tommy Snake The Ami

Tommy Snake The Ami

Reptiles are not exactly my favourite animals. Many are fascinated by that species, as for myself I’m scared of them. Nevertheless I thought it was a shame that my Amiland did not have a representative from this world, that’s why I decided to design a snake with such a personality I could not help loving it.
Tommy turned out to be an elegant snake with his little bow tie, the one that wins your heart straight away and makes you feel at ease … even with a snake around, do not you agree?

Bubble The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, July 2016

I always say that I’m back to childhood thanks to amigurumi. Bubble is born from a sketch of mine where I gave freedom to my fantasy. She was supposed to be a monster but she turned out to be a sweet weird thing instead. She has also a fiancĂ© that I will make one of these days…

Bubble has given me the opportunity to experiment a bit, I crocheted the body and the legs as one piece using a different technique than my usual way. I tried puffy eyes and spent countless hours on her tiny mouth. I made the thumbs as I crocheted the hands, I discovered that it is much fun than attaching them later. At the end I thought something was missing so I added a pair of curls on the top of her head.
For a small project so many things to try, don’t you think? I love my weird thing!

Little Cat The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, July 2016


This little cat was born right at the beginning of my adventure in the Amigurumi World as a designer. I refreshed his pattern adding some small variations to the original version.
I re-wrote the instruction according the current format of my patterns and included the learning gained over the last few years.

I really hope you would like the new Little Cat, do send me a photo if you happen to have time. I would love to seeing your work!

H-4WI Robot The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, July 2016


This is the first time that I have ventured into a non animal amigurumi. H-4WI character was thought to be a cheerful friend for our little ones. The beauty of creativeness is that everything is allowed, so robots do have personality in my fantastic world. H-4WI is a bit clumsy, but such a joyful thing, that I’m sure it will find a place in your heart.
His name comes from the sound of its letters when spelled out, H-4WI.  For some reason I thought it was a nice sound to listen to.
