Girly Tooth Fairy Pillow

Tooth fairy pillow

If you remember, a few weeks ago I posted another tooth fairy pillow I had made for Francie’s grandson.  We tried to get a pair of his old jeans to make the pillow, but time started to run out as the tooth was getting very loose.  I upcycled other jeans for that pillow.  Well she was able to get a pair of “Sara’s” ( her granddaughter) jeans and she brought them to me to make two tooth fairy pillows for her granddaughters.

I decided what parts of the jeans I would use and started doing some measurements.  I needed a back pocket for the money and a place to put the “tooth” pocket.  The jeans were so cute on the front, so I worked my design around the “LOVE”.  Of course this would be Sara’s pillow, since they were her jeans.

This was my lay out for the first tooth fairy pillow.  I had to make the from the same size as the back.

I then thought it would be great to have their names on the pillows, so I got out my Cricut and cut their names out of freezer paper.

I then ironed the fabric to Wonder Under and ironed the freezer paper to the material to cut out the names

I then cut out the names and ironed them onto the pillow and stitched around them.

This is the layout for the second pillow.  I had to add some recycled jean material to “Ava’s” pillow.

Francie said the girls loved their pillows.  The even sent me the cutest “thank you” card with a couple of great gift cards.  Thanks girls (and Grandma Francie).

Happy sewing…or…
