a pillow for the tooth fairy
We hit a big milestone in our house this week with a first wiggly tooth.
Naturally I knew this day was coming, so I had a cute little pillow sewn and waiting for the tooth fairy.
Martha to the rescue.
I love her tooth fairy pillow. I love the description, too:
Martha makes a charming pillow to hold baby teeth awaiting pickup by the Tooth Fairy.
Description of my project:
Cheryl starts sewing a pillow with a slightly crooked tooth on it at 11:30 at night because her child will only eat applesauce in fear of said wiggly tooth falling out before we have the proper pillow.
So not Martha.
Very Cheryl, though. ;)
Anywho, I followed her basic pattern and got this done in about an hour last night.
I made my pillow 9 x 9 and used her tooth template. The only changes I made were appliqueing the tooth to a larger pocket, and I used a regular quilting cotton for the tooth.
And now we're ready for that little tooth to come out anytime! :)
