My weakness always involves eyes…

For some reason, I’ve always loved crafting kitsch. It’s the one thing my crafting friends have come to rely on in me…

“Jenna, you can take care of the kitsch. Everything else will settle itself out.”

It’s so true. I have a weakness for all cute little items with eyes I knit up and declare “my babies”. The latest? The brilliant MochiMochiLand blog has all things ridiculously drool worthy to knit up–with eyes, to boot. I covet the patterns and have worked my way through most of their offerings.

It’s been rainy through and through in our parts, so the other night, as the rain battered the roof above, I feverishly knit up these adorable hearts with eyes. You can get the pattern for free here if you want, they take all of 10 mintes to make. Just a few bits of scrap yarn, a darning needle, and some fiber stuffing is all you need. While the pattern calls for embroidery eyes (which I did try on one of the hearts), I decided to add a bit of my favorite flair instead–with plastic teddy eyes you can buy up a handful of for a mere buck.

Because I was in bed and wanted instant gratification of sleeping amidst a whole handful of hearts, I didn’t felt them up like the pattern noted. They’re still adorable–but expect me to update you when I agitate that wool with tea kettle and soap and work these hearts a’feltin. Perhaps today…it is raining again.

Thank you MochiMochi, I bow to you.
