Now they need to lose teeth….
During our amazing family get-together, my DIL mentioned she had been thinking of making Tooth Fairy pillows for the girls. She’s a busy gal, between keeping track of 4 and 6 year-old girls and their Japanese lessons, swim lessons, social lives, etc., in addition to her new part-time career as a nurse practitioner (we’re so proud of her), where would she find time? Oh, a project for Super Grammy!
I found two iron-on initial monograms, sweet pink chenille and other fabrics and decided to give the pillows a whirl. They were so quick and easy. I reinforced all the fabric with iron-on interfacing, and used washable stuffing. I used a dinner plate to make T’s pillow and based K’s pillow on a simple square. I cut out small pieces of the chenille, reinforced with interfacing, ironed on the monograms, and embroidered them on to the chenille side of the pillow to make a small pocket for the tooth and, of course, the $$ that comes after the pain! The back sides of the pillows coordinate with the shape of the pillow and, ironically, the fabrics kind of match the girls’ personalities! The pillows are super soft on one side so they should be perfect to snuggle up with while the girls await the Tooth Fairy’s appearance.
Sweet dreams little ones. . . .
