My baby girl tapped me on the leg "Momma! I have a looth tuufff!" she said as she had her hand in her mouth wiggling a bottom incisor. My first thought was...
"I need to make you a tooth pillow!"
I had a tooth pillow as a child, and I remembered it being a fun experience. When I was five, I really believed I saw the tooth fairy leave my room with sparkles trailing behind her.
Good timing too, because two days later she had 2 more loose teeth! Apples are going to be a problem for a while.
I have had this vest for quite a long time. I never wear it.
This will do just fine to make
a wonderful and shiny tooth pillow.
Nice vest. Better tooth pillow.
I took my pinking roller to it, and cut out the side with the zipper pocket.
But, I realized I didn't get close enough to the front zipper to create a big enough pocket.
Good thing there was another side.
After that small mishap I turned the rectangle inside out, and sewed up 3 of the 4 sides.
The vest had batting already on the inside, so stuffing it was not necessary. SCORE!!
I flipped the new tooth pillow right side out.
Look it has a built in zipper! Yay!
I hand stitched the open side closed with an invisible zig zag stitch.
It's not perfect, but I think the tooth fairy will love it!!!
See you next time!
