Apparently craft stores here don't like to supply us with plastic eyes with washers (like teddy bear eyes). I'd like to get hold of some in various colours, but the only online store I can find is horrendously expensive.

A little help in finding an online retailer (or offline in London, Preston or Dorset) with various coloured eyes is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, though it's weird their warehouse is in my town but their actual stores aren't Tongue

There's no pictures of the eyes on the site, I guess I'll have to email them and see if I can find out exactly what they've got.

Shame they only do the eyes in 6/7.5mm, most of my projects require 15mm eyes, quite a bit larger :/

I will keep them in mind, though, in case I ever do want other doll supplies or smaller eyes for whatever reason, thanks for pointing them out!

Apparently there's one in Preston, my boyfriend's town. I'll go check them out when I'm next up there, thanks.

I scoured all the craft and fabric shops I could find trying to hunt down the kind of eyes you're talking about.  I finally found them in John Lewis the other week - they had tiny little stick on ones and lots of larger traditional teddy bear style ones with the washer at the back.  From memory they had blue ones and lots of amber ones in various sizes.  All quite reasonably priced too so if you've got a branch near you it's worth a trip!
