Hi!

I'm almost finished my first poppet..all she is missing is eyes! It makes me really sad to see her like this, but I already attempted one eye, and it wasn't successful. She's a bunny...does anyone have any good ideas?

Thanks!

You could use iron-on eyes.

Embroider eyes like a waldorf doll.

Button or bead eyes can be attached by going thru the head and pulled tight.  That will even give the face subtle shaping, setting the eyes further in the head.  The hair will hide the stitches in the back.
