Tooth fairy pillow

We just got back from the dentist where I found out that my oldest daughter has 4 loose teeth! I wanted to make a pillow for her to put her teeth in for the tooth fairy, but had a really hard time deciding what to make.

I finally decided on a little stripped pillow with a pocket to match her room.  I cut 2-inch strips of fabric in coordinating colors and sewed them together.  Then I sewed on a pocket.  I sewed a solid flannel fabric on for the backing, right sides together on three sides.  I sewed around the three sides about an inch into the pillow to give it an edge, then stuffed in a pre-made pillow.

To finish it off I sewed the pillow into place, then to finish the bottom edge I pinned the two layers of fabric together and stitch close to the edge.
It turned out so cute and my daughter loves it!  Now we're ready for those teeth to fall out!


  1. That is so pretty! I have a 6 year old is loosing teeth left and right and a 4 year old who keeps trying to wiggle hers loose. I guess it's time to dust off my sewing machine and give sewing another try! Thanks for the inspiration! FYI, I found your blog through Tatertots and Jello.
