Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  Say, did I miss this somewhere?  What size of eyes are people using, those of you who are using doll eyes instead of embroidery or iron on?  I love the eyes at Suncatcher Eyes, but if I'm gonna order eyes, I want to be sure I'm getting something that won't be too small or large for my dolly.

 Smiley Happy Thanksgiving!  Smiley

I used 12mm eyes, but I couldn't find anything bigger at the time that wasn't a frog eye. Of course, I have since found bigger eyes, but I need to use up my 12s first.

Yeah, shopping for doll stuff is a pain.  Jointing needles can be found at the upholstery store.  Try Sisters and Daughters:  the doe suede is fabulous and you can't find it anywhere anymore.  http://sistersanddaughters.com/fabric.html

I used 15 mm eyes. Look for Scarlett the poppet to see if you like the size.

I found everything on the sewing supply wall at Joann's Etc. I was not sure what I was looking for. I'll add a picture here in just a bit.  Cheesy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first store I went to I ask for doll supplies. They said they don't carry them. So went looking around and found everything on the sewing wall. I was not sure what I was looking for so here's a picture to help.  I did have to go to a few stores to get everything.

On the face piece, stitch right around the front part.  then cut it out.  You don't sew the back part of the face piece yet.  The SA is for when you attach it to the back part of the head.  On the head back piece you sew around the non SA side, leaving a hole for the neck.  Then cut out, including SA, so that you can slap it together with the front piece.  Clear as dirty water now?  Cheesy

Okay, I get it, now! And silly me! If I had stitched along the seam allowance like I was thining, I would have made a very tiny head Wink

That's what I get for trying to think when I just wake up...
