If you’ve noticed a theme to this week of caption contests, you might have guessed that a tiny owl, a tiny fox, and a tiny hedgehog could use a tiny tree for a friend. You would be right!

Hurry up and give us your best tiny tree caption, because we’ll announce all of the caption contest winners later this afternoon, in conjunction with the release of the Tiny Woodland pattern collection. Keep it to one caption per person in the comments, please, then check back later for the winners and the patterns!

Tiny Hedgehog

Update: Congrats to our caption contest winners! Also, the tiny hedgehog pattern is now available as a PDF download and as a kit!

It’s day three of our week of caption contests, and that means we’re just one day away from new tiny patterns!

Today this tiny hedgehog needs a caption, one that sums up what it means to be a tiny hedgehog in a way that is both adorable and profound. Or you can win us over with anything that rhymes with “hedgehog.”

Our favorite hedgehog caption (along with our favorite owl and fox captions) will be announced tomorrow, and the author will receive the new patterns for free!

As always, please keep your captions to one per person per post.

Tiny Fox

Update: Congrats to our caption contest winners! Also, the tiny fox pattern is now available as a PDF download and as a kit!

The new tiny pattern collection is now just two days away! Thank you for all the tiny owl captions yesterday—we got so many more than I had expected.

Today I challenge you to caption the next creature in the collection, a tiny fox! Like with yesterday’s caption, John and I will choose a winner on Thursday, and that person will receive a free copy of the new patterns. (And again, please keep your captions to one per person per post.)

Tiny Owl

Update: Congrats to our caption contest winners! Also, the tiny owl pattern is now available as a PDF download and as a kit!

School’s back in, the air is getting crisp, and new seasonally-appropriate tiny patterns are coming this week!

We’re also long overdue for a caption contest, so let’s fix that right now: Caption this tiny owl with your cutest owl pun, and the winner (to be announced Thursday) will receive the new pattern collection. We’ll have a new caption contest going every day this week, so be sure to check back for more chances to win! (Please keep your captions to one per person per post.)

Tiny Butterfly

Update: We had so many great entries that we chose four winners!

Happy March! This is maybe my favorite month transition of the year, because spring is coming. And spring brings lovely things like butterflies!

How about a tiny poetry contest for this little guy? Leave a comment on this post with a tiny poem about this tiny butterfly, and we’ll pick our favorite on Monday. The author of our favorite tiny butterfly poem will win…

Psst: Extra points will be given for unusual rhymes with the word “butterfly!”

Tiny Dr. Who

My friend Christi is getting married tomorrow! She’s one of those cool brides, so of course she requested a tiny Dr. Who set as a wedding gift. Now that I know she’s opened it, I can show them here…

I’m embarrassed to say that I have yet to watch any Dr. Who, so I had to take to Twitter to find out who Rose is and what her Doctor should look like. Fortunately the Dr. Who groupies really came through for me! I’ve also been flattered to get some pattern requests, but I’ll have to think about this one since I don’t normally make patterns for existing characters. But I can say that they were relatively simple modifications of the other tiny people that I’ve designed.

Best wishes to Christi and her husband-to-be Bobby!
