For the eyes I used vinyl. You may also cut out circles from yellow felt if you do not have vinyl. I used super glue to attach the black plastic eyes to the vinyl circle. If you use the felt and do not have plastic eyes, you could make French knots or even sew a tiny bead for the black eye. The plastic eyes I used are flat on the back.
