Tooth Fairy Pillow

After many stops and starts, the pillow is finally complete! At first it was a struggle for Brother two sew even 10 stitches. It was enough resistance that I put the project away for a while, and then brought it out again later. Not too much had changed, so I put it away for awhile again. Finally the third time I brought it out, he was ready and the sewing became much easier for him. The material is felt and we used 3 strands of floss to sew it together. He stuffed it with a bit of wool roving.

It's a good thing the pillow is complete. Brother's first big boy tooth is part way in. The baby tooth isn't even wiggly yet though, so upon the dentists recommendation, I am helping him to wiggle it a few times a day. The same thing happened to me as a child.


  1. Tell Brother he did a great job!

  2. It's lovely! Sometimes, you have to put something away like that and then "bam!" they are ready to tackle it. Great job staying in tune with that. I'm sure it will be magical when those teeth start falling out :D
