Sewing 101 with Captain Picard

I still have yet to sew a stitch but I cannot find my dog’s harness and while my immediate inclination was to quickly crochet one I realized that would actually take a lot longer than it would in my creative estimation. So I laced him up in a pocket from my dad’s old levis and a torn strip of old satin curtain. Tonight though, I shall pop my sewing cherry on a reversible embroidered dog harness, of my own design.

Looky looky

I recently saw a pin on Pinterest for oven bake clay eyeballs. 

I decided to try to take it a step further and make oven baked safety back doll eyeballs. I took a cookie sheet I no longer want and drilled holes in it, which are approximately the same size as the posts on the store-bought doll eyeballs I have.
I shaped my clay so that it sticks through those holes.

 In theory, when the eyeballs are all ready to go, I should be able to use my pre-made safety backs to adhere them to my crochet dolls.

 If it works I’m sure I can come up with an easy-to-make safety back of my own.

I will let you guys know how it goes.

Here are the instructions for the regular eyeballs:
