Crocheted Eyeballs

Yes, really. I crocheted some eyeballs.

I don't own a small jar, so to display them I opted for a glass. The problem with this is that they don't look remotely scary. More like a ...cocktail.

Mine are about the size of a real eyeball, I think. And no, I have no idea what to do with them.

  5. Cool!

    I would make a few...if I could find my white yarn...but unfortunately all I have at the moment is blue, as my stock is completely gone. Blue would make an...interesting eyeball, hmm? ;)

    Without the iris and pupil, though, this is a good pattern for a ball, so I might just make a hackey-sack or two.

    Thanks!

  6. These are wonderful. I have just discovered amigurumi and these were great practice, plus I love anything unusual!
    I have done a humourous little post about them on my blog if you would like to check it out.
    Thanks for posting the pattern.

  7. Okay, I just found these and I'm totally squeeing xD I'm going to be starting a new job exclusively related to eyeballs, so even my mates and colleagues will get a kick out of these. I wonder if it'll look odd if the iris was a bit wider..

  10. awesome! I've been planning on making a whole bunch of tiny amigurumi and making charm bracelets and earrings from them. these are def going on the list. But first I'll make a full size pair and attach them to a hair elastic so I can have eyes in the back of my head! LOL

  11. I have questions regarding making some of your patterns, or parts of you patters for resale. Please email me at askedforit14@yahoo.com. I am a stay at home mom of two under three years. I wouldn't be going super busy, but I am considering making some spending money. I would have emailed, but my email generator isn't set up and I couldn't find a link to copy/paste to write to you. Thanks.

  15. Thank you for this pattern, it was really helpful! I used it as a base to make one of the Cores from the game Portal 2 and it came out really nice. I was wondering if I could post the modified pattern on my tumblr if I gave you credit for this one and added a link back here?

  16. Love them think I'll make mine blood shot. Grandson will love them as he loves the strange and weird. He also likes the cute too. He saw a Yoda figurine (Star Wars of course) and even though loves star wars and Yoda he didn't like this figure as he thought they made Yoda look scary.
