No Sew Tooth Fairy PillowMarch 19, 2013 1:00 pm Crafts, Kid's Crafts

Well it is happening, my daughters are growing up. My oldest has her first loose tooth. I am excited and sad at the same time. Excited because this is such a big deal for her, she has talked about the other kids in class losing their teeth all year and wanted to know when she would lose a tooth and get to meet the tooth fairy. I’m sad because she is growing up, and as selfish as it is, I really just want my babies to stay babies forever but I can see I will not get that wish.
Since my daughter is so excited about losing her first tooth, I thought it would be fun for her to make her own tooth pillow to put her tooth in when it falls out. So I came up with a cute no sew design that any kid could make. That makes it more fun and exciting because they made it. And don’t worry about it opening, it is held together by glue. The hot glue from the glue gun really works well with the felt of the pillow and this thing is really held together well, so well that I cannot pull the two pieces apart so no worries about it coming apart at all!
And if you already have lost a tooth and need a pillow quick, this pillow can be made in less than an hour. Just print out the template, cut it out, trace it, glue it, stuff it, and voila you have a cute and awesome tooth pillow!
- Tooth Template
- White Felt Sheet
- 2 Googly Eyes
- Black Permanent Marker
- Glue Gun
Print out your template then cut the tooth out.
With your pencil trace two copies (one for the front and one for the back) of the tooth on to your Felt sheet.
Cut out your two copies of the tooth
Glue your two teeth together leaving a small hole at the top to fill it. (Note: glue very close to the edge of the teeth).
Stuff your tooth with your Poly-Fil. You can use your pencil to get the Fil down in to the legs of the tooth.
Glue on your googly eyes, and then glue the opening (where you filled the tooth) closed. Add a smile with your permanent marker.
With the extra felt left after cutting out your tooth, cut a small rectangle.
Glue three sides of your rectangle onto the back of your tooth (this will make the pocket to put your tooth in for the tooth fairy).
Now we just have to wait for that tooth to fall out!
