How to Color Fleece Eyes by clearkid How to Color Fleece Eyes by clearkid
Watch out it's a big file!

Start by making a fleece hat --> [link]

My number one compliment on my hats has to be: "Omg I love those eyes! How do you do that?!" So I thought instead of trying to explain it to everyone that asks, it'd be easier to just point them to this tutorial. :)

Now you too, can have amazing eyes on your hats!

One little tip, don't be afraid to use different colors in your eyes. Here I added yellow to my blue and I even picked blues that ranged from purple-blue to green-blue. If you're doing gold, try adding a little pink and orange, for brown add a little red and green. You'll be amazed how that little extra color can make your eyes come to life!

Tutorial (c) clearkid. Please do not re-post this file, kindly leave a link instead.

But how do you sew the eye ON to the hat without seeing seams? I find that confusing.

So very helpful. Not many artists who have valuable ideas often give up their trade secrets. Very generous of you.

Will the colors fade when you wash the hat? For example, you wash the hat in the washers. Will it do some coloring damages?

I've had it hold up pretty well actually. It does fade a bit in the wash, but no serious damage. you Can always color over the old stuff too.

I enjoyed this tutorial. But, I have to ask, don't the colours wash and fade? I know it's sharpie, but I thought sharpie fades with time?
