Hello again

I just wanted to ask if anyone knew a really great site for how to embroider small designs...

I found a really cute Eeyore pattern I might do for a friend for her birthday...but I think it was a pattern from a kit, and it likely came with appropriate eyes...

I can take a stab at embroidering eyes that look about right..but I just need the know how...

Point me in the right direction...please!

*smiles*

I'm not sure - will go look in a sec, but thought I'd let you know that my cheats tend to be sleeping or sneezing eyes, so they're much easier to do ;-)

I think satin stitch would work. Here are a few links might be helpful.
