An article about amigurumi eyes and eyelids from Squirrel Picnic inspired me to rethink Tatty the Brindle kelpies eyes. I obtained her very unique eyes from Suncatcher Craft eyes and I was happy with them but something was missing even with the black eyeliner I had added with indelible ink. Take a look at this photo of Tatty to see what I mean.
Tatty has a very deep,wise expression in her eyes and I was having trouble capturing it. After I read the article on embroidered eyes I decided to have a go at combining the two and this is what I came up with.
Combination of embroidery and Suncatcher Craft eyes. Tatty’s owner was very pleased. A big THANK YOU to all who share their tips,tricks and techniques so generously online. It is quite inspirational.
