Tiny Koala will Sooth your Nasal Passages

Tiny Koala is always wondering what smells like cough drops… “Oh, wait, it’s me!”


That awesome winning caption comes from Michelle! That means Michelle wins a free PDF pattern from the Mochimochi Shop. Yay!

Speaking of which, why aren’t there any cough drop brands with a koala mascot? Or are there? We should really start a new cough drop company just to remedy this problem, if it is one.

Also, I have to say I was impressed by how many of you managed to come up with “koala” puns. Two honorable mentions that did so:
His bizarre plans to become a marsupial are finally “koala-escing.” by Caitlin

it’s not the size of the marsupial that counts – it’s his koala-ity by Katie

Thank you all for your captions!

What did the Tiny Sewing Machine Say to the Fabric?

I may be small but I can sew with the best of them…oh wait, why I am telling YOU this…you are biased.

We had lots of other great captions, too. Here are some honorable mentions:
