I have seen a number of eyeball pincushions, felted eyeballs and whatnot out there in the craftosphere and I have an awful lot of Moda Dea Crush coloured sock yarn to use up so I combined those two things and came up with this:



The eyes are crocheted using bits of doller store acrylic and the i-cord is knitted with the Moda Dea sock yarn.  If I didn't intend for a pet to actually play with this, than I would have embroidered some red veins onto the eyes but I was concerned about them being chewed off and left the eyes 'fresh and clear' as it were.
