To be frank, today I’m just showing off. This might be the cutest thing I’ve ever made!!! Li’l Miss, aged four, had a loose tooth, and her mom asked me to make a tooth fairy pillow. After scouring Pinterest for inspiration, I combined several ideas to make this one:
I bought white and pink felt sheets, embroidery thread, and the dotted pink ribbon. I used pink fabric scraps and fiber-fill I already had in my stash. I used a back stitch to create the tooth fairy and the “Lauren’s Tooth” part. I stitched the felt heart onto the white felt, leaving an opening at the top to insert the tooth. I then ironed on interfacing to the white rectangle, cross-stitched it onto the pink fabric, leaving a large opening for the treasures that the tooth fairy would bring. I assembled the pillow on my sewing machine, stuffed it, and hand-sewed the closing.
Li’l Miss lost her tooth this weekend, and hung the pillow on the inside knob of the front door so the tooth fairy had easy access. The fairy sneaked in last night to leave a treat, and Li’l Miss was a happy camper!
