32 Eyes

I’ve sewn thirty-two eyes. I don’t know why.

It’s pretty tiny, much smaller than it appears here (9cms x 9cms)

The ingredients are as follows: three of my nana’s threads (image below), a blue page from this catalogue, and, eyes cut from magazines and newspapers mostly gleaned from the bins of London’s public transport system.

In the following posts, I will do my darndest to credit the source of every eye, and every eye photographer.
