Project Design Team Wednesday~Tooth Fairy Pillow

Posted by administrator on Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Today we are sharing a simple but cute project for any little girl in your life.  A little doll tooth fairy pillow which can hold teeth and a little something that the tooth fairy brings in return.  It is a PERFECT project for all experience levels...and if this is your first sewing project....we promise it is simple and quick.
This project came about because the Tooth Fairy is not finding teeth at our house!  When a certain little girl puts her lost teeth under her pillow, that Tooth Fairy is not finding them....and therefore not taking them.  But no more!  Now there is a nice soft pillow with a special fairy-sized pocket---especially for the Tooth Fairy.  No most lost teeth at our house!
Here is what you will need to make one too:
*1/4 yard main doll body fabric.  We used the Verona line from Riley Blake.
*1/8 yard for the pockets---cut 2
*1/8 yard piece for hair--cut 1
*small scrap of heat n' bond--cut 1 hair pattern
*small scrap of felt for head--cut head pattern
*black embroidery floss for the eyes
HERE is the pattern for the tooth fairy doll.  You will need to print it out at 100%.
And here is how you make her:

(This first pocket was a little too large for our doll, your pattern pocket is much smaller and cuter!)

Here is a great tutorial if you don't know how to make french knots.

I handstitched the little openings on the dollies but you can machine stitch them too.
Thanks for letting us share!  
We have a lot more sewing tutorials over at Simple Simon and Co

Oh how cute! 

I'm going to surprise my 6 year old :)

She'll love it!

  1. Hi - Is there a problem with the link to the pattern? When I click on the word "HERE" it only brings me to a blank page. Really cute idea that I would love to make.
