My little boy has to have a damaged front tooth extracted, so I needed to get to work on a Tooth Fairy Pillow. This is what I came up with.
Mr. Happy Tooth.
I am just getting into embroidery and I had fun with it here. I think it makes the tooth look a little vintage-y.
On the back, I put a little pocket for my son's tooth. I asked him to pick the fabric and he wanted dots (from my Gypsy quilt). And then, when I asked him what shape he wanted the pocket to be, he said "a circle." Great, a challenge!
At the last minute, I went back and embroidered the year ('11) on the back of Mr. Tooth's "foot."
I was very happy with my son's reaction. He loved Mr. Tooth and slept with it last night. Awww.
