Embroidered Eye Tutorial

Here is a tutorial about how to embroider eyes.  This is how I made the eyes on the Elmo and Cookie Monster Hats, the Polar Bear Hat, and the Penguin Hat (coming soon!).

Start with a long piece of yarn (at least a few feet, maybe longer)

1. Sew a five-sided star the size of the finished eye.

2-3. Weave the long tail of yarn over one star point and under the next.

4-5. Continue around until the eye looks like a circle and the star points are full.  Tie the yarn in the back of the work and weave in the end.

6. Repeat for the second eye.  Ta-da!  A circular embroidered eye looks great on this Penguin Hat.
