Look me in the eyes, darling!

Have you ever wondered how a hand-sewn teddybear gets its eyes? I haven’t either until I saw it for the first time, when Andrea had a new bear in the works. Since the head is already stuffed, the teddybear eyes must be completely pierced through the head and sewn from behind with a thick needle, so that they come to their proper place. This looks pretty brutal at first, so you must not be squeamish. But have a look yourself:

But when the teddy finally looks at you with both his eyes, the torment is quickly forgotten. 🙂
By the way, this is Adrian. On the picture he has no nose yet, but he has been finished today and turns the whole house upside down with his smart character!
