I made this huge eyeball bowl for a swap.  It is my second crochet project. I've been a knitter for a very long time, and recently taught myself to crochet!  I really love it.  I just winged this, making it up as I went along, single crocheting in the round.  I really love the way it turned out!!  The third pic shows what it looked like before I felted it (I had to put it through the wash 3 times before it felted right!). Hope you like!

Wow, the felting really does make a huge difference.  I love it & am a little creeped out by it at the same time (I'm squeamish about eyes).

It reminds me of those charms you get in Mediterranean countries, for warding off the evil eye. It's the colours, I think. Makes it a very benign eyeball bowl, to me at least.

It called a turkish eye..
I love the bowl, its deadly! I can't help but imagine people taking sweets out of it and as it nears the end... they have a great big eye staring at them!

Ooh cool and creepy!  I love it!  

Have you considered needle felting some little red lines on the white part to make it look even more realistic?

I can't help but think you should call it an eyebowl.

Sorry...

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
