A tooth with teeth

Here's what I made for Courtney for her birthday... a tooth fairy pillow! I found the tutorial on the blog of the awesome Larissa Holland, mmmcrafts, a couple of years ago and couldn't wait till Courtney was old enough so I could make one for her. She hasn't lost any teeth yet, and probably won't for a while, but now she's prepared for whenever she does. :)


I love this little fairy! The closer I got to being done and seeing what she looked like, the more she made me giggle. The mouth is a pocket where the child puts the tooth, then it can be hung on a doorknob or some convenient place so the "fairy" doesn't have to risk waking the child searching under her pillow for that tooth... brilliant! The $ is then left in the pocket after the tooth is removed.

Do take note that the tooth has a gold crown.... heehee.

Incidentally, the ribbon was designed by Jess. The back side of it is the matching design in blue.

Here's a quick (because there were many more gifts to open!) pic I snapped of Courtney right after she opened it. Her eyes don't have their usual sparkle because she had a cold. Bummer to not feel up to par at your own party. But she had fun, anyway.


More birthday party pics later...........

The tooth fairy pillow is so cute makes me want to give up a tooth just to try it out.

Ha! Let me know if you get any loose ones, and I'll make a grandma fairy pillow for you! ;) I won't promise the actual tooth fairy will come, though.

Larissa Holland has some great patterns. Your tooth fairy is lovely. :)

I feel like if I ever have kids, my sewing projects list will be filled up for years. :D
