The boy child has a wobbly tooth. It's hard to believe that soon he'll be sporting that gappy grin that makes children look so much more grown up, but he's quite excited about it all, and I promised I would make him a tooth fairy pillow.
While sorting through the scraps today to make a pile for another scrap-busting baby quilt, I found a few favourites that were too small for a quilt but perfect for a tooth pillow, so cobbled them together to make a smallish rectangle. Then I stitched on a little felt tooth (I got the template from this Purl Bee tooth bag tutorial), and found this bag-making tutorial to work out how to make the zippered pocket on the back. And then I used the cross stitch generator and Aida tape for the label on the back. Ali helped me stuff it when he came home from school, he remembered stuffing the baby Oobee we made together a couple of years ago and was very happy to help out.
And, ta da, a tooth pillow.
It turned out bigger than a lot of tooth pillows, but it was mostly determined by the size of the scraps, and also I didn't want it to be too tiny because tiny things have a habit of getting lost in this house. This one can be a teddy pillow when it's not needed for official tooth fairy business.
