Mini Munchkins: Micro Crochet Animals

Mini Munchkins: Micro Crochet Animals
 
Size does not matter; that is what a Vietnamese-owned Etsy store will wholeheartedly agree upon. Su Ami specializes in retailing the teeniest tiniest amigurumi crochet animals you will ever see, some hardly reaching 4/25 of an inch.
 
They are so tiny that they are almost microscopic, which begs the question; HOW DO THEY DO IT? Each individual little critter is crocheted by hand, and probably by flower fairies and magic dust in the middle of the night. Drop one on the ground and there's a very high possibility that you will lose it forever.
 
Both the name and idea of the online shop was inspired from one of the five members of Su Ami. The youngest member, who is just 10-year-old and nicknamed Su Ami, loves all kinds of animals and anime characters which prompted them to start creating amigurumi patterns.
 
The five crochet crafters of Su Ami apply different crocheting techniques in their delicate handicrafts and always go for vivid colors. They may be a fraction of the size of your finger tip, but they certainly do not compromise on details. The animals are so meticulously designed to delight you that they come with microscopic details like a collar on a dog, a tiny flower on a turtle, a scarf on a penguin, a hat on a monkey, a ribbon on a bear, water gushing out from the blowhole of a whale, and even teensy weensy little chicks with a mother hen.
 
These tiny pieces of art do not come cheap though. Prices range from $23.09 to $295.10, depending on the intricacy of the pattern, and rightly so as you can only imagine how labor intensive these mini crochet animals are to create. Each nano pet is shipped in a clear plastic case with a removable lid and green felt bedding.
