These animal test eyes are very handy for experimental eye placement. The sizes are 6- 16mm. Available at CR Crafts.

Here is a example of some eye placements on one guy.


Once you decide your size and placement, you can stitch on button eyes, or remove the stuffing and lock in a pair.





Ready to make a cuddly guy? These are some patterns to consider…

Make an heirloom bear. Make one of minky, fleece, or plush. The pattern also can be used to make one from a sweater. (The bears in 8155 were used for the models in the photos above.)
