Chloe Giordano, a talented illustrator and embroiderer in Oxford, England, creates tiny embroidered animals that are full of texture and life.

What’s striking about her embroidered pieces, besides her painstaking attention to these animals’ rich colors, is their size. Most of these animals are not much larger than a thimble, which puts the amazing detail and color of her work into perspective.
