Emma and all of her little friends are at the tooth fairy stage of life. Em was desperate to lose a tooth since she felt like she was going to be the last one of her friends to lose one. Her birthday is in June, so she’s already one of the last ones in her class to have a birthday and she felt like she’d be last to lose teeth too. But, she actually lost 2 this fall, and was not the last of her friends to do so. The night she lost it, I whipped up a little tooth pillow for her to keep it in until the tooth fairy could come and trade it for a little moolah!
It was a very rough, rough draft. Basically, I just wanted to have something for her to use with the idea that I’d make a better one down the road. One of her friends since birth (there were about 8 of us that all had babies that summer) just lost her first one last night, and I'd promised to make her one for when that first one popped out. So…I got behind and made it today instead. It’ll sure be ready for that second tooth, though!
I made a little tutorial of my efforts in case anyone was interested…you can’t get much eaiser than this and it is very easy to personalize! I have never given sewing instructions to someone before, so if something isn't clear, let me know...
1. Grab a tooth template to use. I got mine from the web (search tooth clip art) but you could just draw one if you’re talented like that. I am not—my talents lie in other areas…or so I tell myself!
|I will be trimming some threads, I see before I give these to the girls. Just one more reason I need a magic sewing elf to come and live in my sewing room!|
