Friday our little 5-year-old great-granddaughter came home and told us she had a loose tooth. She was so excited, because she is one of the younger ones in her class. I decided that I had better get busy and get a tooth fairy pillow done for her.

The was not that hard, but I do not do what I call fiddle work well but got this done this afternoon. It has a pocket in the back to hold the tooth, and as she told me that maybe she would get a dollar, five dollars, or maybe even a hundred dollars. Boy, where have the days gone that we got a dime, and if we were lucky a quarter?
The design is from Planet Applique and is done in the hoop. I choose the 5x7 hoop, but thinking maybe I should have done the larger one.

Oh, this is darling! Nicely done. I have some little ones in the family soon to be loosing their baby teeth. But most are boys. We have a few more years before the girls will be ready for the Tooth Fairy to visit. Where did you find the design?

That design is from Planet Applique. It has two ways for you to make with. With the skirt, or without it. The pocket for the tooth and money is in the back.

Oh, she is so beautiful. My youngest greatgranddaughter lost her first tooth recently and is 6. I'm glad I already made her pillow ITH also. She got $5 and yes, I was lucky if it was 10 cents to a quarter.

What a cute story from a beautiful little girl. I love your tooth fairy pillow. It was worth every minute you spent making it. Wow! Even the tooth fairy has been hit by our worldwide inflation.

This is adorable and what a great place to put a tooth that has come out. I cannot remember how much the tooth fairy leaves in the UK but it must have increased since my two were at that stage

Well, money doesn't get you as much as it used to.... Not when a candy bar is now nearly $2 here. I remember getting 3 for 10 cents back when I was little. Mother would give me a dime and let me go to store with my little twin brother and sister, and get 3 candy bars for a dime. Bu, as my Little great told her PopPop and Gigi (that is me) that we are very, very old. LOL

That is a sweet adorable tooth fairy pillow. Love the story with it. Have to agree about how teeth prices have gone up in little ones minds. ;-)

Your Tooth Fairy is darling. Love the little sparkly ballet skirt especially.

Думаю с таким милым зубиком правнучка будет не так переживать потерю своего зубика! Да еще и с денюшкой!
