Black Safety Eyes| Add a Review
What You Get
I love using safety eyes in my softies. I think it gives them a really professional look. And the shiny black domes have a certain sparkle to them that's impossible to replicate with felt or embroidery thread. Plus? They're super easy and fast. :-) Kids especially love using them in their projects.
They're called safety eyes but they are NOT SAFE FOR BABIES! Please - if you're making a toy for anyone under 3 years old - stitch the eyes. It's the safest solution.
Choose your eye size and pack size from the drop down menu. Note - only the enormous 40 mm eyes are available in a single-pair pack.
I have them in a few sizes. . .
4.5 mm is really tiny. I use these in small felt softies, like the Party Animals. This size comes with a smooth shank and a metal washer, which never feels quite as secure to me as the ridged shanks and plastic washers. I don't use these for softies that are going to get a lot of wear and tear.
6 mm is the size I use in Franklin the Fat Cat when I'm stitching the small face (it makes him look extra-fat).
9 mm is the size I use most often. I use them in all of the Dress Up Bunch dolls and in lots of other softies as well. This is also a good all-purpose size for amigurumi.
12 mm is just a bit bigger and I use them in some softies and lots of amigurumi.
I like using this ball point awl to poke the holes for these eyes.
