You look like you haven”t had your proper amount of cuteness today. That”s okay, though; Su Ami is here to take care of that.
Su Ami is not one artist, but a whole family of artists living in Vietnam. They create tiny crocheted creatures so that people like you and me all over the world can SQUEE with delight.
Yes, they really are that small. The creatures are created by hand and typically measure about 10 to 20 millimeters. They”re made using a 0.4 millimeter crochet hook, the smallest of the crocheting tools out there. Needless to say, this probably requires extremely steady hands and some pretty good eyesight.
Besides these incredibly small versions, Su Ami also creates slightly larger versions that can reach several inches in height. Compared to the miniatures, these larger creations are absolutely huge. While the larger variations are stuffed, these are so tiny that they don”t need to be.
The name Su Ami comes from the youngest member of this artistic family, who, at age 10, is a huge fan of all things cute. The 10-year-old is especially interested in the Japanese craft of amigurumi, or crocheted dolls in the shape of animals. Su Ami is her nickname, and her love for the cute crafts inspired the whole family to take up the crochet hooks.
If you”d like a creature of your own, you can check out what”s available on Su Ami”s Etsy shop. They”re not cheap, but that”s understandable given the skill behind these creations. You can also see more of their creations in all sizes on their website.
