Angie lost her first tooth today.

I had hoped for a bit more time between the tooth loosening and actually falling out. Mostly because I needed to buy pink embroidery cotton to make her a tooth pillow. (How did I not have any pink embroidery cotton in the house? Surely it should be a girlmom staple, along with glitter, stickers and a drawer full of hairbands.)

So, as cute as it is, this little tooth pillow is just an interim pillow. I’m going to make a proper one (i.e. pinker one) for Angie. Hopefully before the next tooth comes out.

Materials: cardboard, white felt, scissors, fabric glue, a needle, embroidery cotton, stuffing.

To make:

1. Cut a tooth template from the cardboard. (I used a piece of a cereal box.) Trace two teeth on the felt.

2. Cut out the teeth shapes. Cut a small piece of felt for the pocket.

3. Glue the pocket in place. Optional: sew around the edges of the pocket to zhoozh it up.

4. Stitch the front and back of the tooth pillow together, leaving a small gap. (Note: It’s a lot easier if the gap is at the top or on the outer edge of the tooth.)

5. Stuff the tooth and stitch closed.
