Pattern Description:

"My tooth came out!"

That first baby tooth is gone and a child is giddy with excitement. It's hard to get to sleep knowing that during the night the tooth fairy will take the tooth and leave a surprise gift in exchange.

But where to put the tooth? Under the pillow? What if it falls off the bed or gets tangled in blankets and the tooth fairy can't find it? In a glass of water? But what if the water gets knocked over?

This pattern holds the perfect solution. Stitch up a pillow to hang on a bed frame or doorknob, or choose to make a mug rug that can rest on a bedside stand or dresser.

The mug rug and the pillow are almost identical. Each has a small pocket with a flap that will keep the tooth safe and easy to find and a larger pocket shaped like a tooth. The larger pocket has plenty of space to hold a note to or from the tooth fairy and a gift.

The pattern contains detailed instruction for both the mug rug and the pillow. Numerous photos illustrate every step of the process. Also included are a full size template for the large pocket and a full size layout plan.

Please contact me if you come across any questions or snags while using this pattern. I'll be happy to help in any way I can.
