Do you have stuffed friends hanging around with missing eyes? We do thanks to our doggo, here's how I fix them to make them look new! Slide 1) the friends in question waiting for a new look. This is the tiger's first new set of eyes and the lamb's second new eye, the dog spared the second one the second time. 2) Get safety eyes from your craft store, I like to get mine from Joann's because I think they are amazing (not affiliated with Joann's). Cut off the back of the eye and shave down anything sticking up to the best of your ability (thanks @wonton_teapot!) 3) Trace the eye in some felt, you'll use the felt to fix the hole in the friend's face so the eye has some where to sit. 4) Do a quick whip stick to close any gapping holes and then sew the felt circle about where the original eye would be. And no that's not Odin you're seeing, just Baby. 😉 5) Just Tigey with her eyes felted. 6) Hot glue the eyes into place and they're brand new!! Baby's eyes are two different ones because the one on the right is from my stash from years ago and the left was bought just a few weeks ago. Alyssa doesn't seem to mind or notice. DISCLAIMER: Obviously this is not safe for younger children who put things into their mouths constantly, hot glue is only so strong and loose eyes would cause a choking hazard.
