Tooth Pouch Tutorial

Toothpouchdual_4If your children are as unruly as mine in their sleep (and while awake), use this little tooth pouch that I showed in my very first post to help keep teeth under the pillow.

The Tooth Fairy simply takes out the tooth and puts payment for said tooth back in its place. In our house she sprinkles fairy dust (which looks a lot like fine glitter) behind her.

Sharon B's Stitch Dictionary is a fantastic place to get tips on embroidery stitches and Myriad Toys has the loveliest plant-dyed wool felt that I've found here in the UK. The also have lovely plant-dyed wool for felting.

This would be a good starter sewing project for children. Simply enlarge the pattern so that it's easier for their less dexterous hands to hold, use only a running stitch and keep the embroidery floss short enough to avoid knots. If the stitches are far apart add a dab of craft glue so the tooth doesn't slip through them. Or avoid stitching altogether and use craft glue for the whole thing!

First tooth is so exciting. My daughter loved making hers with me and is now on tooth number three! Of course forcing them a bit because she likes the cash.

Another fabulous creation! My sister, Anne, loves decorating and creating tiny tooth fairy boxes for her kids. I haven't tried this yet, but I definitely want to try it for my future kids!
