The miniature world of Amigurumi

Su-ami-images

Who would believe that it would be possible to crochet on such a small scale? The Su Ami group, a family of five, based in Vietman have, and are accomplishing just that!

Inspired by the Japanese art of amigurumi - a form of knitting and crocheting small stuffed animals, Su Ami - a family of craftsmen with nimble fingers, have created a series of miniature animals, which l feel radiate an endearing charm all of their own.

From the cheeky monkey to the family of penquins, such craftmenship is to be surely commended. l like the way the photographs give a clear perspective of the scale, to which these characters are being created. Especially the wee owl, delicately perching on the end of a ruler.

Lovely!
