Ok so I made this aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago and didn't get round to posting it. Then weiwei (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16739738.0)
went and posted hers so now i donut get to shock you all with my wild originality.
Its my fault tho, that'll teach me to be so lazy.



Here he is. His name is Jimmy Tooth, you can't really tell he's a tooth in the pic but its slightly more obvious in real life. Aaaaaaaaaaaand hes made of felt.


Ok, finally the tutorial is here, just for you art rainbows!


1) Cut out felt as shown above. For his side, measure all around the edge of the tooth body and use that for the length, my width was 3cm, but it would look good wider so it was kind of square too.  The height of my tooth is 7cm from root to tip!


2)Next sew his little teeth to his mouth. Its best to use a very thin needle for this or youll end up with lots of little holes in his teeth where the needle was poked through.


3) Now sew on his eyes and mouth to one side of his body. Use lots of little stitches else the corners of his mouth might fray a bit!


4) this is the tricky part. start sewing your long edge to the tooth (you could start with the back so it wont matter so much if its a bit messy) its trickiest between his legs, or roots! I know I know the pic is awful! If youre having trouble working out what its meant to be just ask!


5) Once youve sewn all around, sew the two ends together. I usually end up with the side too long but if this happens just cut it down to fit.


6) Now start sewing the front to the sides. Make sure the front is at the same angle as the back else your tooth will end up all skew whiff. sew most of the way around but leave a space for stuffing.


7) Now stuff! Make sure hes really full of stuffing so hes nice and plump! Then sew up the hole, and you're finnished!

Let me know if you have any problems, i might be able to sort them out!
