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).
