I absolutely love going to craft shows and supporting local artisans. I also love the inspiration that it brings in terms of actually ‘doing’ my own crafts whether its for a gift or developed into a Craft Shack activity. One of the ways that I feed my creative soul is to draw or sketch. Sometimes my drawings are very technical, other times they are just doodles. This one is sort of a combo. I had an idea to make a tooth fairy pillow! What a great concept and I’ve since seen a few versions of them on Pinterest and other blogs.
The child can put their tooth in the little pocket and hang it on the door to leave for the Tooth Fairy. This just seems much more convenient in case the TF can’t find it under the child’s pillow.
I also love the mix of color and texture possibilities for this project. With different coordinating fabrics and ribbons, you can really have fun with it.
The finished size is approx 5”x9”, with an 8” ribbon for the door handle. You should leave about 1/2” seam allowance when sewing. You can have fun combining fabrics and ribbon and create a pocket any size for the tooth. You can even make the middle part where the ribbon is a bigger pocket in case the tooth fairy needs to leave a bigger item, like a toothbrush!
Sewing with the minky dot fabric was a little challenging, but these don’t have to be perfect.
With my supplies (about 1/2 yard of a few fabrics and a few yards of ribbon), I made 4 of them. I let my daughter choose her favorite and the others have become gifts for friends.
If you are looking for a fun and quick project, try one out! We’d love to hear from you and see a picture of how they turned out too.
