He-ey! I’m almost fully recovered from my surgery so I have plans to pick up a paint brush again very soon, but in the meantime, I’ve been revisiting my sewing skills by whipping up this tooth fairy pillow:
Why the need for this little helper? Well, someone seems to think that she can, I don’t know, turn the big SIX and start losing her teeth!
Yes, that would be TWO missing teeth – with the help of the school nurse, no less.
I didn’t want this pillow to be exactly like big sister’s, so I made a few modifications. Rather than a skirt, I added a ricrac and pearl trim belt and I left out the little felt teeth as they interfered a bit with the Tooth Fairy’s, er, retrieval process.
I used the same pearl trim to make a “crown” for this little fairy by turning it upside down, forming a circle and securing it in place.
I left off the wings and put a pocket instead, perfect for the Tooth Fairy’s deposits (she likes to leave gold dollars around here).
And the best part?? The Tooth Fairy can pay a visit without waking up the sleeping child! We’ve already used this pillow twice and so far it’s working great (not to mention it’s cute as can be just hanging out under that pink boa wreath…)
