eyes and noses

Getting the face of your amigurumi just right is a very important step – they need that cute expression! I get a lot of questions about what to use for the eyes and noses. I’ve compiled a run-down of some options you can try.

    HI! I make cloth dolls, not amigurumis, and I also think that the doll`s face is one of the most important steps, I make a lot of tries before chosing it! The face is the soul of the doll, so…
    Your eyes box is great! Happy new year!
