Tooth Fairy Pillow

Hi there!

My daughter is of that happy age when teeth start wiggling and jiggling and popping out.

Can I just say right now that wiggling teeth give me the heebie-jeebies. I’m talking spine-tingling, stomach-turning heebie-jeebies. Luckily my hubby can handle this. Whew!

My daughter was super excited about the tooth fairy…and all the goodies he/she might bring. Being the totally unprepared, fly by the seat of my undies parent that I am I had to whip up a tooth fairy pillow the day of. My daughter said it had to be a pillow she could set on her bed…not a little pouch to hang on her doorknob as I suggested (hoping for a little easier tooth fairy duty). So here’s what I came up with…

Tooth Fairy Pillow for Sarah

Ta-Da!

The pillow fabric is left over from a skirt I made my mom. The tooth and heart are felt. I just free-handed the shape of the tooth and had my daughter help me with the heart. Both of the felt pieces are open at the top to create pockets. The tooth goes in the heart and the tooth fairy leaves his/her surprise in the tooth pocket.

And yes…that is a $5 bill…apparently the tooth fairy rates have increased exponentially since I was a kid. Maybe the tooth fairy will deliver a quarter or a dollar next time…just to keep things interesting.

And just a little teaser…something really exciting is brewing around here. You’ll have to stay tuned to find out!

Cheers,

Liz

    By golly, I think you’ve hit on a winner there! I love it! Especially warms my heart that you were able to use material that I LOVE – Polka dots!

    Love you!

  2. Cute and clever! I got a quarter – yes, 25 cents – from the tooth fairy when I was a kid. Either I’m really old or my parents were really cheap. Or both. :-)
