|Hi! My name is Dave, maybe.|
|small eye pinned slightly lower|
I found myself torn between aligning the underwear monster's eyes or shifting them. Since Dave (the pattern monster) is shown at an angle to the page I'd gotten used to the sight of him with one eye lower than the other. When I pinned them on with the centers at the same height he just didn't look as cute to me. So I took pictures of him with the eyes pinned each way to decide. Admittedly, the difference is very small anyway.
I also pondered whether or not it was better to sew the eyes on with the white eye color or with the body color. I did the large eye first and used white but felt that the body color would have been a better choice.

|one white, one body color|
So then I started sewing on the smaller eye with the body color. I think I ended up pulling the yarn tail between the edge of the eye and the stitches attaching it to cover the edge of the eye. Then when I finished the small eye I fished the yarn back to the larger eye and duplicate stitched the body color over the stitches attaching the eye to the body. In the end I concluded that it really didn't matter either way. But originally I'd been very upset by the white attaching stitches seeming like they were in the plane of the body. Because the eyes are so very bulbous that troubled me; there's a chance that tension might have made a difference, but I just focused on whether one color made more sense than the other.
