Teeny Tiny Handmade Creature Art Photography by Su Ami

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting tiny animals. But Su Ami, a family of Vietnamese crafters take the artform to extremes with their range of teeny tiny handmade creatures.  These are  just millimeters high.

There are obvious challenges in working with sewing and embroidery thread. To the micro snail above,  just a single strand of green embroidery thread and white embroidery thread were used together with the smallest crochet hook size  (0.4mm)!   It measures just 10 mm by 10 mm – miniature indeed!

The artisans approached the photography of such tiny handicraft in a novel way by capturing the amigurumi on index fingers against different backgrounds.

The whimsical results certainly contribute to the popularity of their pieces. As the Japanese would say, kawaii (cute)!
