Orrick the wizard owl stands 11 inches high to the tip of his hat.
He is suitable for the older child or adult due to the eyes, but these could be embroidered or made of felt as long as this is well sewn on, and the wand and staff left out, he would then be fine for a young one.

The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow and contains many photos to help you along the way.
