Hand Painted Safety Eyes for Toys and Dolls, 12mm, 15mm, 20mm

Beautiful safety eyes for beautiful toys

All hand-painted with care. 

These hand-painted safety eyes give a unique look to handmade creations. New sets of hand-painted safety eyes now available in my shop: TinyAmigurumi
Sometimes I have a stiff neck because of painting each safety eyes one by one, adding more layers and using varnish afterwards but I´ve seen amazing handmade dolls and toys with these eyes used. So if you use my hand-painted safety eyes for your work add a hashtag #happamigurumi that I could see them even more.

If I look into those hand-painted safety eyes eyes I can see so many cute amigurumi crochet teddy bears. Some with a warmish undertone, some with pearl effect  - perfect for handmade teddy bears

Have you seen those big-eyes toys? New finished clams. Nothing but eyes kind of feeling. 
20mm glitter eyes If the question is Glitter then the answer is yes! 

Want to put the finishing touches on your doll or amigurumi toy? Plastic safety eyes are an adorable option for crochet toy project to make them unique.

The coloring is a bit different when the light hits it. 

Note: These are still small pieces that present a choking hazard to children under 3 years or if they put things in their mouth.

Baby Shower Gift Ideas: Crochet Teddy Bear

Baby Shower Gifts

Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern

If you want to make a baby shower gift from the heart, then take some days to crochet a teddy bear. I have a perfect Amigurumi Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern for the baby shower: Lucas the Teddy
Personally I adore hand crochet teddy bear toys - They just have this something extra that every mom would like for her child. Crochet Teddy Bear is a lifetime friend and a nice memory - unique gift that is guaranteed to last forever. Crochet Teddy Bears are well loved by young and old. Lucas the Teddy Bear Design works with different yarns and hook sizes, the design won´t change. That´s why I like the design. Instead of buying a ready made teddy bear you could always consider crocheting one yourself. It takes time but it´s totally worth it. 

My baby shower gifts: a Crochet Teddy Bear and a Crochet Rug

I also crocheted a nice rug using tube yarn. Unfortunately didn´t write the pattern down. Love those minimalist colors - different shades of grey and white. My baby shower gifts: a nice combination of a teddy bear and a handmade rug. 

And the baby with her baby shower gifts

Just lovely, no words needed :)

Happy crocheting!

Amigurumi Jointed Teddy Bear Villem and Marta: New Amigurumi Crochet Teddy Bear Patterns

Do you like crochet amigurumi teddy bears with vintage inspired elegance with jointed head, legs and hands? I´m so happy to share with you my latest news. I have listed these new amigurumi crochet teddy bear patterns in my shop: two patterns in the the same PDF tutorial. 

4-way Jointed Teddy Bear: Teddy Villem

5-way Jointed Teddy Bear: Teddy Marta

They are crocheted in the same way, but differ in head and body and also in a placement of safety toy eyes because Marta bear is fully jointed.

Fully jointed Amigurumi Teddy Marta is made out of DK/worsted Alpaca yarn, ca. 80 gr.

She has a sophisticated feel that makes it a great crochet bear for adults as well.

Vintage inspired teddy bear patterns are now available for you to crochet a bear or two. They have this classical look which gives the childhood teddy bear effect. Why you should give it a try, will give you some reasons:
a) very little sewing required. Amigurumi Teddy Marta is fully jointed, meaning there´s only ears to be sewn to head. 

b) inserting plastic safety joints is easy, because I´ve designed the teddy bear pattern with little holes in a body and in head where to place plastic safety joints (placing joints, joining head to body using safety joints), so everything has made very easy for you

c) you can make very many classical amigurumi teddy bears with this teddy bear pattern. Create your own Teddy Bear as a gift for a child, for a grand child for closed ones or why not to yourself, if you don´t have one. Teddy is a lifetime friend. 

And you can customize it to suit any occasion. And you can crochet scarves in various colors to make it even cuter!
