Literally 10 minutes after I got to work this morning, my husband texted me telling me that Brychan's tooth had fallen out. WHAT?!?!
#1: I just found out last night it was loose!
#2: I missed it?!?
#3: My husband was still in bed when it happened, which means my son was all by himself when it happened.
So, I made a quick call to my son to get all the details, finished with work and hurried home. As soon as we got home, we decided to make a tooth fairy pillow for him.
This is what we ended up with.
(Please excuse my cell phone photos!)
Here's how we did it!
First of all, I let him pick out his fabric from my ridiculous stash of extra fabric. I then Googled a tooth pattern to print off and cut out. I looked at so many different "teeth", but I think I ended up getting one from the Singer website. Anyway. I printed the picture, cut it out of white flannel and let my son decorate it the way he wanted (I just let him use permanent markers). Obviously, there had to be blood; because that's what his real tooth looked like. And then it needed a sweet smile.
I then put the two right sides of the pillow fabric together and sewed all around the edges, leaving a small hole to a) turn it right side out and b) fill it with stuffing.
I then let him put all the stuffing in his pillow before I hand sewed the little opening up.
Now if somebody could please just figure out how to make time stand still for a little while...
