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.

 Shocked  WOW!!!  This is so great!  I've never heard of a tooth fairy pillow before!  I love it, and it definitely screams "boy" so you done good!

Thanks!  I think it helps the Tooth Fairy swap out teeth for money w/o disturbing sleeping kiddos - I had one as a kid, but when I made them from my nieces a few years ago their mom hadn't heard of them either.

Sweet! I'd totally dig it if I was a little boy. Wink
