Ever wonder how some portraits of people or animals look so alive? It's all in the eyes. A little trick to engage your viewer is to put a little highlight in the eyes. After all, eyes are rounded,and shiny, and reflect a little something in any light.
So how do you make that happened with yarn or wool strips....a dot of a light color. I almost always use white. Sometimes it is a tail, a loop, and a tail. Smaller eyes may need just two tails. Leave both ends long, twist them together to make a single dot, then cut it. Here are some examples. Hope this little tip helps!
