Riechan, the eyes on plushies are called safety eyes for a reason - because they are safe for kids in that they won't come off when chewed on and thus present a choking hazard. In other words, they aren't meant to come off once they are on there. You could maybe try to soften them up with a lighter to get the backs off (like some people here to in order to get the backs on), but be careful not to light the plushie itself on fire! Or maybe really really hot water would work as well? If you have access to additional backs, you can just destroy the back and reuse the eye. I think some people have done that.

Or cut them out. Then you'd have to cut a bigger hole so that the back could be squoze through, then you'd need to slather the back of the eye with fabric glue so they'd stay put.

Or e-6000 might work too.

I personally would say if that's what you really want to do for your poppet then it might be worth a try. but I'd practice on a faux head to make sure you are ok with how it looks.

I just put in the eyes, and she looks funny Cheesy

oh okay,I'll try that Wink thanks for the tips

here is she !!!!
My first poppet !
(she's still naked and has no clothing but) I am proud !!
Now repeating for a swap Wink



She's made entirely from felt, has blue eyes and lady parts ^^

Although I do have a problem with the legs :s the arms I got around the body very tight, but the legs didn't :s maybe it's because I have used buttons for the arms and pony beads for the legs :s ?

No, I did a stupid thing and after getting the first joint granny knotted it, I would pull the other end and wrap around the leg/arm a few times, before I knotted. Now I know I need to knot the other end as it comes out. That looks awesome Riechan. You should have seen my first disaster.
