Tooth Fairy Pillow

Way back in November I mentioned that we had our first loose tooth in the house and that I had made a tooth fairy pillow. Since then my five year old has lost two teeth, and I'm so glad I got the little pillow made in time. I shared a roundup of tooth fairy pillow ideas a while back, but I went out on my own for this one...


The tooth is handstamped using a stamp that I carved myself. I love him! This was my third attempt at carving my own stamp for a project and the first time that I really had success with it.


The back has a little pocket for the tooth...


I should have embroidered the word "tooth" on the pocket, but it was an afterthought, so it's written on the pocket with a fabric pen.


I used some ribbon for the hanger. We hang it on a dresser knob by my daughter's bed, but it could be hung on a headboard or doorknob.


My daughter loves having somewhere special to put her tooth when it falls out. And I love that I finally carved a stamp that works!


Enjoy your week!

This is wonderful, Gwen! Your daughters have the cutest things that you make for them. For better or for worse, I end up giving most of what I make to other people! :)

Gwen,
What a cute project! This is my first visit to your blog. I found your sewing closet image on Pinterest. I love your space! I know this is off topic but I'd love to know how long and wide your closet space is? I have a long narrow double closet in my finished basement that I would love to converst to a creative space. My basement is now our finished great room and I need a cool space to store all my creative supplies so that I can keep things organized and close the doors and have everything out of sight when not in use. Would you mind sharing the dimensions of your space?

The stamp is perfect for the job Gwen. It is a very cute pillow. I like the way it hangs up and the little pocket for the tooth too. Our kids used to put theirs in a glass of water up on the kitchen windowsill before bedtime!
