Safety First: When making a stuffed toy, consider the age of the child you are giving it to. If the child is older, use buttons or snap-on bead eyes, as seen in this bird pattern. If the child is younger, make sure to appliqué or embroider the eyes because buttons or snap-on eyes can be choking hazards.
