Where can I find this!?!

I want to make crochet stuffed animals. Got patterns, colors, etc and as soon as I get done with my daughter's infinity scarf and holiday hat, I'm trying it out. However, I can't for the life of me find any stuffed animals eyes. The kind that you sew in...that has a piece that you poke into the animal (sorry, that's the only way I can figure out how to describe it). I've looked in Michael's and Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts and didn't see them either place. Does anyone know of a store that carries them? I'd like to be able to get them somewhere near me, not online although I will if I have to. I live in Louisville if that makes a difference.

Not sure if you have a store called hobby lobby but I'm sure they would carry them.

I have only found them at Jo-ann's, never at Micheal's or Hobby lobby. I use safety eyes, they have a piece that pops on the back and locks on.

What section did you find them at in Jo-Anns? I looked all over and didn't see them but I also had a toddler with me that was so not feeling that store at all.

Umm in mine they are by the pipe cleaners. I had to ask someone for stuffed animal eyes and they knew exactly what I was talking about

I usually get safety eyes from JoAnn if I only need a couple sets of a specific size ("kid's crafts" aisle), but I've found it to be MUCH cheaper to get them in bulk online through Etsy.
