    HI! I’m pretty sure that the backing on your safety eyes is being put on backwards. I could be wrong, but thing about it if they were pulled on they are cone shaped and would pull out quite easily especially if over time your stitches loosened up. if you put them on like a cone around a dogs head, the dogs head being the eye, they would be less resistant to coming out of your fabric if pulled on. Just an observation in case anyone is using this for a child’s toy. 🙂 Happy Easter!!
