How To Choose Cat Eyes For Stuffed Animals

It's not difficult to find a free crochet eye pattern online. A quick search will turn up a variety of options, including patterns for specific stuffed animals like cats and dogs. But what type of eye should you use for your project?

Safety eyes are a popular choice for plush animals, as they're less likely to come loose and pose a choking hazard. However, plastic cat safety eyes can be hard to insert into crochet fabric.

An alternative is to use plastic cat eyes, which have a metal washer attached to the back. This makes them easy to attach, but they're not as safe as safety eyes and should only be used on toys that will be handled gently.

For a more traditional look, you can embroider the eyes onto the finished piece. This option gives you the most control over the size and shape of the eyes, but it does require a bit of extra work.

Whichever type of eye you choose, following the pattern carefully will ensure that your finished project has a professional look.
