I often get asked where to find eyes for amigurumi making. They can be called variously animal eyes, safety eyes, or craft eyes, and can be difficult to locate. If you aren’t lucky enough to find them in your local craft store, there are plenty of online sources.
Now that I can no longer sell eyes at PlanetJune, Michelle of Suncatcher Eyes has agreed to look after you for me! In addition to her beautiful handpainted eyes, Michelle now carries a full range of black and clear animal eyes for your amigurumi. These are the same high quality eyes you’ve bought from PlanetJune. Like me, Michelle prioritises quality and customer service, and Suncatcher Eyes ship worldwide (with very reasonable shipping costs).
I’ve also compiled this list of other sources where you can find amigurumi eyes. I haven’t purchased from the following, so I can’t personally recommend them, but I have heard that others have had success shopping for eyes at these online stores. If you know of any more, or have any recommendations to share, please leave a comment on this page and I’ll add them to the list. Likewise, if you find any of the links below are no longer valid, please let me know so I can fix/remove them!
If you’d like some alternative ideas for what to use for amigurumi eyes and noses, see my article with some suggestions: Eyes and Noses.
