Well, this has got to be the teeniest, weeniest, cutest snail I ever did see! And handmade too, by Suami. She crochets them with sewing thread and this little snail is just 6mm long!
In her Etsy shop, you’ll find a whole menagerie of tiny animals from microscopic ladybirds and whales to families of tiny penguins.
They make the much larger elephants and ponies look positively ginormous, though really they’re only the size of your hand. Custom orders are welcome too, if you have a tiny wish of your own.
Marceline is the co-founder and editor of Super Cute Kawaii and the author of The Super Cute Book of Kawaii. She lives by the seaside in Scotland in a flat full of kawaii, creating cute character goods as Asking For Trouble, working on endless craft projects and playing Nintendo.
