"A fun and secure place to put your tooth before ou put it under your pillow. The Tooth Fairy loves the help!"
This is part of the Art To Heart: Curiosities and Mischief book of quilts, pillows, and other fun accesories for kids rooms. They have a fairy tooth fairy pillow and the monster one. I made 4 monster pillows.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Absolutely - except mine is a mirror image due to how I cut the pattern out. It's still a noobie mistake that I make. But in this case it doesn't matter as it's cute either way!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are very simple to follow. It's basically a small pillow with a pocket for the tooth with the eyes appliqued on.
Flannel fabric in the "Curiosities and Mischief" line of fabric by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex Fabrics (She also put out the book). I really liked how the finished pillow looked, so I bought the fabrics that went with it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If I have other kiddos that might be losing teeth soon, I certainly wouldn't hesitate to sew this up again. (Although my son is only 2 I just couldn't resist!)
Overall, it's a fun, fast project and the perfect gift for the kids that are starting to lose their baby teeth. You only need a few fat quarters of coordinating fabric and a short afternoon of sewing and it's done. I made 4 - one for my son, and the others as christmas gifts.
