I've been wanting to make an eyeball for a really long time.  I started it last night, and finished it this morning.

Front:

Back:

Side:

I didn't use a pattern for this.  I just kind of winged it.

very nice eyeball, will you use it as a pillow or pincushion or just enjoy it as it is?

Thanks!  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.  For now, I'm going to put it with the rest of my amigurumi.

I didn't take long at all to make.  I basically made 2 circles, sewed them together, and stuffed.

a pincushion!!!!!  Literally "Stick a needle in my eye"!  LOL! Y'all remember that kid thing, "Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye."  Great job!  My son now wants me to make him one to use to keep his eye on his room when he isn't home.   Cool

Hee hee.  That's so cute that your son wants one to keep an "eye" on his room.  Let me see if I can type up a quick tut.

Start with black for the pupil
sc 6 into magic circle (or ch 2, sc 6 into 2nd ch from hook) join, ch 1.
2 sc in each st around.  Join, ch 1.
Change to iris color
1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st.  Continue around. Join, ch 1.
Keep increasing in this manner (sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next.  Sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st.)  You'll want 3 rounds of the iris color, then switch to white.  Keep increasing to 1 sc in next 10 sts, 2 sc in next.  Sc around on the last row. 

The back is the same as the front, except there are no color changes.  I just sewed the veins on.  Sew both sides together and stuff.

Is this tut crappy enough for you?  I've never written a pattern before.

Yay, you understand it!  Please post a pic when you're done.  I want to see how your eyeball turns out.
