So, you've finished your cute little amigurumi animal, and it's time to add on the finishing touches. One concern I've heard from many crocheters is what kind of eyes to put on to be baby safe. Unfortunately, the little plastic eyes that are available from craft stores can easily be yanked off by small hands. The best alternatives I've been able to come up with are either sewing/embroidering on the eyes or painting them on with fabric paint. With either technique, make the eyes as flat as possible so that, again, baby is not able to pull off a glob of thread or paint.
