project: tooth fairy pouch
Remember back in July when we made something fun for Thread the Needle Day? Well, today is Tooth Fairy Day, and I knew it deserved a project! Lately, I've been lucky enough to get to know the Tooth Fairy and learn her tricks...her job is not easy!
This simple little pouch will hold teeth and cash, and will slip under a pillow without your sleeping toothless little one ever noticing! (My brother is good at noticing small movement near him while he sleeps, so the Tooth Fairy needs to be stealthy!)
Here's what you need:
Felt: White, yellow, light blue (or another color for wings)

Cut out one crown and one set of wings. Cut out two teeth, and embroider a face on one of them.
Using embroidery floss, stitch the wings to the back (outside) of the back tooth piece. Stitch the crown to the back of the front tooth piece. Leave the floss attached, and continue along the top edge of the tooth, then add the back piece behind.
Holding the front and back together, continue stitching (now through both layers) around the side, bottom, and back up to the top. The sides and bottom should be sewn together, but the top will remain open.
At our house, the Tooth Fairy gives one dollar per tooth, and you get to keep your tooth! Although, when I was little, she only gave me 25 cents. How about at your house? How much does she trade for a piece of a smile?
