I am using the following pattern to make a baby frog hat for a friend:

www.p2designs.com/images/patterns/set-froggy.html

I don't really want to make pom poms for the eyes, though, because I think it would be hard to wash it.  Does anyone know of another way I could make the eyeballs?  I've got a pattern for making circles but they'd be flat and not 3 dimensional.

Thanks!

I probably won't have the best ideas, but here goes:

Embroider the eyes on

Use buttons for eyes

Use beads for eyes

Perhaps not what your looking for, but all I can think of right now.

use ping pong balls with snaps attached on the bottom so you can remove them for washing?  you could cover the balls with fabric so they're not so obviously ping pong balls...

If it was me (which it isn't, but anyway) I would crochet two spheres to stuff and put on top. I've never tried knitting a sphere, I'm sure it's possible, but the crochet would be quick and sturdy.

Just my opinion.

I crocheted the frog hat I made, and I agree crocheted eyeballs are the easiest. I stuffed the eyeballs with polyfill firmly so I can just throw it in the wash when it needs washing.
