Tooth Fairy Pillow

 Who has ever felt sorry for the Tooth Fairy?
It's a pretty thankless job & sometimes it's hard for her to remember all the kids that lose teeth!
(Especially after a full day of car pooling, laundry, dishes, etc!)

I know the Tooth Fairy has 'forgot' to collect my son's tooth---
and then tries to make up for it by giving BIG money;)

Help the Tooth Fairy out:
The Tooth Fairy Pillow hangs on the child's doorknob,
which means easy access to the pulled tooth, letter, AND the ability to leave reward money.

I got my lovely materials at The Ribbon Retreat:

First, print off this pattern for the tooth.
Or you could make up your own!

Next, let's work on the back pocket:
1.  On the raw edge, mark at 1" and 3.75".
2. & 3.  Iron and fold to form pocket.
4.  Pin.  Edges are still raw.

Let's work on this cute tooth's face!
Choose which type of 'smile' you want:  RicRac, Fabric Marker, or Embroidery.

Layer the front, knotted loop, and back...

Last Step!  Finish with a little hand-sewing...
Look at your cute new buddy, the Tooth Fairy pillow!

I love that it has this double pocket!

If your kids are like mine, they like to save those shriveled, pulled teeth. 
They can keep those in the bottom pocket. (yuck)

And the cute hand-written letters & money can go in the (hygienic/safe) top pocket!
Join the Tooth Fairy revolution and make this handy hanging pillow...
it will make the fairy's job easier!
