InstructionsI saw a picture of a tooth fairy pillow on All People Quilt and liked the idea of using the jeans pocket since I had a source for jeans pockets. Nothing to it after having an idea of what I wanted.
Type of item: Toy
A hip pocket from a boy's jeans; leftover quilt fabric for a western style quilt; chopped, up left-over quilt batting
What was your inspiration?
My oldest great-grandchild began shedding his baby teeth. I thought he and all the grands should have a tooth fairy pillow appropriate for their gender.
What are you most proud of?
The children's smiles, even if the oldest has a vacancy in one place.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Google images of tooth fairy pillows. There are oodles of examples. Ideas will just grow as you mentally browse through your stash of fabric and bits and pieces.
