Handmade eyes for cloth dolls

I am finally working on the draft blocker doll. I decided instead of a chicken she'll be a crow. Very cute. And instead of a draft blocker, she is going to be a doll/deco piece.

Very unhappy with her embroidered eyes... Black thread on a black fabric... BORING! I found this wonderful blog with instructions on making polymer clay eyes for cloth dolls and setting them in with fabric eyelids. I am really excited to give this a go. I think she'll have green eyes!

Then I need to get her dress, pinafore and bloomers done. Today?? Probably not.
