Our kids are so lucky to have a Grandma who sews them such nice gifts… pillows, pj’s, and dresses. While they appreciate these gifts it is when Grandma lets them help with a sewing project that the kids jump for joy! Take it away Grandma!
How does a loose tooth = Sewing project?
The wiggling of the teeth began. The anticipation of losing their first tooth. What will the Tooth Fairy bring?
It seemed like the perfect time for their first sewing project on Grandma’s sewing machine.
What you need felt, Tooth Printout, batting, rick rack or ribbon, assorted beads and markers.
The kids traced the tooth onto the white felt and cut out the tooth.
Then they cut 2 pieces of felt about 6″ x 9″ using shears to give it a jagged edge. (felt does not ravel so you can use regular scissor if you don’t have shears)
Next they made faces on their Tooth, and sewed the tooth to one piece of felt leaving the top of the tooth open. It makes a pocket.
If you want your pillow to hang, pin your ribbon or rick rack to the top to make a handle.
Next put the two pieces together and sew it, leaving a large enough opening to stuff it.
After stuffing it, finish sewing it the rest of the way.
Now they are ready for the Tooth Fairy.
Not only are they proud of losing their first tooth, they are proud of the pillow to put it in.
