I was just scanning through the most recent posts with pictures and my husband just LOVES the eyeball!!  LOVES it!!!  He's a science geek (as am I but not as much as he is) so he REALLY appreciated the detail you put into the optic nerve.

GREAT job!!!!

hooray! you got a picture up.

thank you.

and thank you so much for making such an amazing birthday gift for me! i don't know if people realize quite how big it is. the eyeball is almost the size of a football! and the optic nerve tissue is all stretchy and great!

isn't that keen?

thanks again!

Sweetie pie press got her package, and told me that her camera is not cooperating, so I am posting the pictures.  She wanted a subversive stuffie, and suggested an eyeball, and I happily obliged!!!



I made the eyeball out of craft felt.  I used a fancy stitch on my sewing machine to give it bloodshot eyes, handsewed the iris and pupil on (complete with a light reflection!), and knit the optic nerve and attached it.  Somewhere under all that optic nerve is a Zanti Miss Knit Creation label.

I was originally going to put googly eyes on the iris, because I thought that light reflection on the pupil looked like a tooth (making the pupil look like a mouth), but I decided that it was cute enough as-is.

I will try to post other pics to my blog, as I have a huge blog entry on the agenda.
