Miniature Crochet Animals by Su Ami

Vietnam-based boutique Su Ami is composed of a group of 5 crafters in the family who create adorably tiny crochet figurines of animals. Featuring insects, bugs, domestic pets and wildlife, the miniature pieces are generally made with bright and cheerful colors of wool, which accentuate their quirky and unique nature.

The shop is named after the youngest member, who is 10 years old. The charming subjects and amigurumi aesthetic are inspired by childhood films and movie characters. Following amigurumi fashion, the crafters concentrate on elevating the level of “cuteness” of an ordinary figure.

With the use of slightly smaller crochet hooks and knitting needles, the knitted creatures are tightly constructed so their polyfill stuffing doesn’t peak through. Outstandingly small in size, each miniature arrangement ranges from .5 an inch to 1 inch. You can find popular animals, which include a set of different dog breeds, dolphins, deer, bears and other critters in their Etsy shop.
