About the Felt Eyes

Felt eyes are one of the biggest questions that I have seen in the crochet community here lately. One of the most popular of these questions that people seem to be wondering is if they can use a Cricut Joy to make them. And, guess what??? You CAN make felt eyes with a Cricut Joy! In fact, you can make felt eyes with any Cricut!

I actually made these with my Joy!

You can find my tutorial, along with an in depth video on making your own felt eyes with a Cricut Joy HERE!
