Family of Crafters Crochet Adorably Tiny Animals That Fit on Your Fingers

Su Ami is a family of five crafters living in Vietnam, and together they create adorable miniature animals that'll fit on your finger tips. They run an Etsy shop under the same name and stock it with sweet creatures of all kinds – both real and imaginary. Tiny turtles, whales, owls, and unicorns are just some of the things they've made with crochet.

Considering their size, the amount of detail in these critters is impressive. Su Ami makes sure to capture the animals' defining features, like a swan's elegant beak and a lion's majestic mane. We especially enjoy how the family crafts their miniaturized pooches. They use the ends of embroidery thread to create fluffy, furry dogs that clearly resemble a specific breed.

Su Ami's work falls in the category of amigurumi, which is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. They use these types of patterns, as well as ones with a variety of crochet and craft techniques. This ensures that their shop is always full of interesting, charming characters.
