This little barn owl plush toy is stitched together using three colors of especially soft minky cuddle fabric. She is carefully stuffed with polyester fiberfill and her heart-shaped face is embroidered by hand! When she isn't snuggled up in your arms, she'd love to perch on your bookshelf where she can get lost in a great story.

♥ Hermia is a plucky barn owl who enjoys perching on rafters and hooting at nearby kittens who are cuddling in piles of hay. Deep down inside, Hermia wants to join in those cuddle puddles but doesn't know how. Will the kittens accept an owl into their loving embrace? Can cuddles transcend natural barriers between species? Only time will tell.

♥ This little plushie is 5" tall and 3.5” wide; she’ll fit perfectly in your palm or a coat pocket!
♥ I made this plushie out of minky cuddle fabric and wool blend felt, machine sewing the larger sections and then stitching and embroidering the face and all of the details by hand.
♥ My patterns start out as original pencil drawings and go through a series of revisions during the process from paper to plush.

♥ Like all items with a handmade nature, you may notice slight differences in your item from what is shown in the photos. Every one of the plushies I make is unique and the details are stitched by hand, so yours may not look exactly like what is pictured here. I assure you that every item I sell meets my own personal standards, and it will be of the highest quality that I can achieve!
♥ If you have any questions or you'd like to contact me for any reason, send me a conversation on etsy or email me at laurenmakesthings [!at] gmail.com

♥ I also make snowy owl plushies! Hedwig would make a great friend for Hermia: https://www.etsy.com/listing/254276887/snowy-owl-plushie-stuffed-toy-snowy-owl

♥ I make all of these items and run this shop on my own, so I only have time to ship out orders once every 1-2 weeks. If you'd need me to ship this right away, please contact me before you order to find out if my schedule will allow for an extra trip to the post office.

Frequently asked questions about FairweatherFriends

♥ Yes! I do not include printed invoices with my orders. If you choose to send an order directly to someone else as a gift and you'd like me to include a note, include what you'd like it to say in the note to seller during checkout. Remember to include your name in your message so the recipient knows who sent it.
♥ All of my plushies come wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with string. Necklaces come packaged in kraft paper jewelry boxes with my shop logo on them.
♥ There are no small pieces; all of the little details are made out of tiny bits of felt or embroidery floss. As with all objects you give to small children, use only with adult supervision.
♥ Please keep in mind that these are handmade pieces of art (though they are remarkably cuddly, adorable, and very soft!) and I make each one individually. I recommend that you encourage the child to be gentle with these characters.
♥ If you do need to clean up a Fairweather Friend who has had a particularly difficult day, spot clean with a damp cloth and leave it out to air dry.
♥ I am not able to accept very many custom orders, since my priority is to keep my shop stocked with items that everyone can enjoy. If you'd like to submit a request anyway, contact me with the details and I will let you know if your custom order is possible for me to complete.
♥ Due to the work involved with creating custom plushies, they will cost more than the plushies in my shop and take more time to make.
♥ I make all of my plushies by hand completely on my own, which takes a lot of time. Because of that, they sell out quite often and you may have to wait a few weeks to a few months before certain designs are available again. I also regularly rework or retire older items, so they might not always be coming back to my shop in the same form.
♥ Follow me on social media if you're interested in receiving updates about new items as well as the return of older products that had sold out.
♥ Feel free to send me a conversation on etsy to let me know that you're hoping to see the return of a certain design and check up on how or if they're coming along!
♥ If you realize that you made a mistake in your order once you've placed it (for example, you put down the wrong shipping address or accidentally ordered two of something), send me a conversation on etsy to let me know as soon as possible! That way, I'll hopefully be able to fix the issue before I ship your order.
♥ My plushies are made out of either fleece or minky fabric and stuffed with polyfil which are all 100% polyester (synthetic). I use cotton thread and embroidery floss. However, their eyes, noses, and other small details are made out of 30% wool / 70% acrylic felt to give those pieces a bit more stability, so my plushies are not vegan.
♥ Please allow 1-2 weeks for your package to ship. If you'd need me to ship an item sooner than that, please contact me before you order to find out if my schedule will allow for an extra trip to the post office. I charge a rush fee for this service.
♥ Domestic US orders usually take 2-5 business days to arrive and International orders can take at least 7-21 business days once an order is shipped.
