Who doesn’t love a big, squishy owl? Who? Who? Giles the Owl was named by my husband after I made the owl for his birthday. Giles doesn’t mind being quite round. He just loves to cuddle! Giles makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves cuddly animals -- kids and adults alike!

The finished size is approximately 11.5 inches (29.2 cm) in height and 9 inches (22.9 cm) in width. The eyes are 22 mm safety eyes. Note that you can use a separate color for the background of the eyes if the belly color you choose does not work well for eyes.
