I have no idea what sound a koala bear makes so I’m imagining “kiki” would be okay. (Sharon, Sue, Jennifer in Australia – any comments?) 

My first effort:

koala 1

I used Repeat Crafter Me‘s basic pattern, and also looked at these two pictures for inspiration:

Some discussion ensued last night about the average size of koala’s ears – I’d always thought of them as having quite small ears and quite low down. Seems they don’t really. Some of them have HUGE ears, high up and fuzzy.  Shows what I know.

Poor Kiki, her ears are going to have to have plastic (yarn) surgery.

To be continued…

    the hat is squeal inducingly cute. Koalas make a grunty, hissy, warbly sound, but only for special occasions like calling to a mate or warning a joey. I think my fellow Aussies will agree Kiki is a perfect name! :)
