So, Thaddeus is getting ready to lose his first tooth. I don’t remember it ever taking this long to lose your first one, but whatever.
Anyway, I’ve been trying to figure out how the Tooth Fairy is going to visit and switch out his tooth for money without waking him up. I can’t even go into his room to turn his radio down or anything else when he’s sleeping because he’ll wake up.
Tooth Fairy Pillow
Earlier this morning while Xavier was napping, I decided to do some Googling and found this pattern/tutorial for a Tooth Fairy Pillow. Now granted this pattern/tutorial was for a Ballerina Fairy, so I had to make it more boyish.
Easier said than done!
Since I decided to do this on a whim, I didn’t have all the proper materials. Take for instance, the pillow I made is PINK! I only had pink felt material. Oh well! Plus I’m not all that creative for making something, unless it’s exactly as the tutorial goes, so I had to improvise. We have some craft stuff lying around from other things we’ve worked on, so I decided to use some of those items.
For the eyes I used some “funny eyes” we had so when the pillow moves the eyes move too! I used an extra thick strand of black ribbon and doubled it. Not sure what I was using that for, but hey, it worked for this project! The cheeks are little blue fuzz balls and the teeth are just some white fabric that I cut off the end of some old fabric I had on hand.
Hey, it all works! And not too bad for a first time making of one.
