When the Tooth Fairy Comes
I wanted to show you what my newest little project is. Braeden has his first loose tooth. Dana talked about how she wanted to find some sort of little tooth fairy pillow for him to put it in when it falls out, for the tooth fairy, of course! So I searched the internet for some ideas. This is the one I chose to do. It was a little more involved than I thought it would be, so...I made them for all my grand kids. They will just have to be kept in a safe place waiting for future teeth to fall out. I also made a couple for gifts while I was at it. The nice thing about this design is it has a little pocket that the tooth can go into, or you can buy those mini manilla envelopes and write the child's name on it and the date the tooth was lost. Maybe even record how much the fairy left in exchange for the tooth. On one side of the pillow there is a pocket with a felt tooth on it. The other side I monogrammed the initial of whom it belongs to, that way each family member knows their pillow from their siblings pillow. A fun thing to do would be to sprinkle a tiny bit of glitter on the mini pillow leaving proof that the fairy had indeed made a visit!
