3751  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Tooth Fairy Pillow on: May 14, 2008 10:44:45 AM
Not exactly sure where this goes, but I decided it's more of a home-thing than a play-thing.  It's a toothfairy pillow for my nephew's birthday.  I made them for his sisters when they were little, too.  It was a fun challenge to make something for a little boy who isn't into superheros (my only little boy crafting experience).

The tooth-y pocket is kind of big, but I just visualized these proportions.


Close up of the top-stitching and the little tag made from some vintage trim I had around.


Even though I kept reminding myself to include the tag when I sewed on the pocket, I forgot.  I considered leaving it off since I'd already sewn the front and back together by the time I noticed - BUT it's about 30x cuter with the tag.  I think there was more seam ripping with this "quick" little project than many more complicated ones!  Geez.

I can one up that! YKYACW you keep an embroaidery needle in your pocket for no reason. It's always there and you jsut transfer it when you change pants. Sometimes, I even forget until I feel it and I'm all "what's that in my pocket" then I pull it out and I'm like "Oh yeah, forgot that was there"

Well, that just sounds dangerous!   Shocked

The dog has had Dr. Zayas for 3 weeks or so and hasn't forced him to share his secrets (spill his guts) yet!  It's killin me!

*laughs* awwww.
I hope you have a camera handy when Dr. Zayas finally gets it.
(Haha love the name! my Hubby would so approve "damn dirty apes")

I can't take credit for the name, that was The Manflesh's doing.  I've said a few times "Dr. Zayas is keeping secrets" but he hasn't seemed to pick up on the hint.  It will be a boon of good luck if I'm at their house when she finally rips it open!

Those are SO cool!  I hadn't thought of doing something like that for kids (just a dog), so now I'm re-inspired!  As for your daughter's interest, who doesn't like wearing stuffed monkey intestines as a belt?

They look great!

These would make great gifts for any guys...even if they don't cook on the stove, almost all use an oven (to heat up TV dinners or bake chicken nuggets) or microwave and can use a pair of hot pads.  Personalizing them by using fabric that corresponds with their (in this case, your male friend's) interests and having made them yourself made them extra special.

Exactly - we all heat up something in some way for eating even if it's from the toaster oven - which is why I made this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210039.msg2251032#msg2251032

Thanks mymomma and opheliapoe!  I'm kind of going crazy making these types of things lately and I don't even cook!  Giving a lot away, though.  It's a fun way to use a little piece of a fun print and useful, too.
