Embroidered eyeballs

When Duncan visited Seattle recently, he stayed with a Search Marketing associate of his, [CEO of SEOmoz – Rand Fishkin](http://www.seomoz.org/team/randfish) and his wife Geraldine.

While he was there they visited [Archie McPhee](http://www.mcphee.com/) a store who’s tag line is ‘slightly less disappointing than other companies!’ The store sells [Yodelling Pickles](http://www.mcphee.com/items/11761.html) – I can’t wait to go visit myself at some point!
Geraldine bought a jar of fake eyeballs.. which I wish Duncan had photographed! Not least because we decided that it would make the perfect thank you card!

The photo’s not great, but the iris is done using buttonhole stitch, the pupil a french knot and the red blood-shotness is fly stitch.

Since making my own eyeballs I found some kits over at [Creative Kismet](http://blog.creativekismet.com/2009/05/20/getting-ready/) who would have thought there’d be so much call for embroidered eyeballs!
