Suncatcher craft eyes

I have been a fan of Michelle’s gorgeous hand-painted Suncatcher Craft Eyes ever since…

I laid eyes on them! 🙂

    Happy Sewing,




  1. Lenie

    I’m totally in love with Artie Aardvark. He definatelly needs the small black eyes.

  2. Cornelia Ludewig

    The eyes absolutely look awesome, I will order them for my next toys,

  3. Rachel

    I think the insomniac bear would look fantastic (if not a bit quirky!) with the red and black zombie eyes!

  4. Lauren

    I think batty bat needs glow in the dark orange eyes to help him see at night, and heather hippo would look nice with glow in the dark pink eyes as every girl needs a touch of pink

  5. Becky

    Rainbow eyes on dizzy the dolphin

  6. Solange

    I’d pair the hot pink sleepy eyes on a Bella bulldog in a nice matching colour 🙂

  7. Katie

    Yellow eyes on the penguin!

  8. Janet Skinner

    Hi Pauline – I would put sleepy eyes on Diggles the dragon, make him cute, and love the cat eyes on Kitty Kate of course. Think I need to buy some and try different combinations for a change.

  9. Severine Freisz

    I recently sewed Timmy the T-Rex and glow in the dark neon green oval pupil eyes would have been stunning and even more fun for the actual owner !
    thank you for sharing Suncatcher Craft eyes with us, I looked for eyes for a long time and only found some basic classical ones, now I have such a huge choice its amazing !

  10. Andie

    I think next time I make Sandy Seagull I will use the shimmer pale gold eyes. Stunning!

    Your Punju Peacock would also look amazing with one of the shimmer range – I love the shimmer rose!

  11. Sandy Wright

    I believe baby Iguana would look great with 18mm Sleepy Lime eyes and lizards often have their eyes half closed. I have used different coloured eyes on some of my knitting – have posted photos to your website.

  12. Samantha hart

    I would say shimmer aqua would go great with sammy the shark, shimmer lavender for sugar plum fairy ballerina x also the green flower ones would look fab on patty the cow x

  13. Alison Unwin

    The translucent purple eyes on Diggles the dragon!

  14. Jen M

    I love the flower eyes. I think I would use them to make a girly T-Rex! They would look amazing on all of your patterns though 🙂

  15. Jeannine

    I think I will put purple translucent eyes on my Fleur the Flamingo. Thanks for the giveaway

  16. L

    Sky blue shimmer eyes on Preston the polar bear – give him a little extra Christmas-y sparkle!

  17. Kesi

    Shimmer blue would be AWESOME on your new bulldog! <3 him.

  18. Trina

    I liked the pink flower eyes for the kitty pattern.

  19. alison darling

    I would love to use either the blue or the pink eyes on the dolphin or the sea turtle with some bright colored fabric. I think that would be awesome!

  20. Catherine

    I want to try the green cat eyes in Gertie the Gecko, but I think all the Suncatcher eyes can be used with at least one of the Funky Friends animals to give them even more cuteness than they already have.

  21. Laura

    I would love to try a metallic eye on puppy dog Pete. Maybe the copper colour ones.

  22. Laura

    What a fab giveaway! I think the shimmer eye catcher eyes would look great with the sugar plum fairy! Of course I would need all the eye catcher colours available to co-ordinate them with corresponding fabric! (Slight OCD) Lol ;), I have the sugar plum pattern, larry the lion and calico bear so would love to add to my expanding and slightly additive collection! And the eye catchers would add “shimmer”!!! Love them all xxxx

  23. TeDiouS

    I think the shimmer lavender eyes would be beautiful on the unicorn pattern in white fabric with purple metallic mane/tail/horn. 🙂

    I love toy eyes but have real trouble locating anything but cheap basics in brown or black anywhere near me. Online suppliers like Suncatcher eyes are such an amazing resource! And they go so perfectly with the cuteness of the funky friends.

  24. Pat Richards

    I think any suncatcher eyes would look cool on the bulldogs

  25. Simone

    Purple sleepy eyes with Izzy Insomniac bear. How I feel most of the time. 🙂

  26. Makushla

    Oh wow, what a great range of amazing eyes! I always have so much trouble doing eyes, my French knots are always wonky and my embroidery is terrible.

    I would make a Halloween mobile with lots of batty bats and boo the ghosts all with glow in the dark eyes – it would be so cool to have different coloured glow eyes for all the bats 🙂

  27. Stephanie Parkes

    I’d love to make Kitty Kate with the cat eyes, it would finish her off perfectly.

  28. Elizabeth

    I like the opaque eyes the best and your Ollie & Lolly Owl is my favorite!

  29. Meghan

    I think Fleur the Flamingo would look great with Shimmer White craft eyes!

  30. Maria Aparecida Homeniuk de Miranda

    I like owl eyes.
