Felt Eyeball Pincushion

At Britex Fabrics we get many fabric requests, from staid grey flannel, to wacky Burning Man blue fur, to romantic Chantilly lace. Today, someone asked us for fabric with eyeballs on it, which started a Britex mad quest for optically themed fabric. In the process, we stumbled across this nifty detailed tutorial from Ohioan Jen for an eyeball pincushion. Made with felt, floss, and pins (available at Britex), this might be the perfect Halloween trinket for your favorite seamstress or craftster!
