Gryffindor-Colored Tiny Owl Plushies

A while back, I asked my Twitter followers what color owls they'd like to see me make next. Several people suggested a Gryffindor-colored owl with a red body and a gold face, so I worked on a new design to go with that color scheme. This particular little owl has a tail and a cheeky head tilt.

I used the same red fleece as the fox plushie I designed earlier this year and some leftover yellow scraps from the fleece used for the tiny yellow owls I've been making. It's fun seeing how the same fabric can be repurposed to make such a different little character! And the tilted head is new for my owl plushie designs. I like to think that his curiosity gets him into trouble.

I've got a few more ideas for new color combinations in mind, but eventually, it's possible that I could work on owls colored for each house at Hogwarts. For now, I've already got a dark blue owl and a yellow owl, so it seems a little silly to design new ones specifically for Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Perhaps I'll just work on a Slytherin one to round it out at some point.

These owls will be available on my merch table on tour this summer until they run out! And then maybe this fall I'll consider making some more to put into my Etsy shop.
