My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Show and Tell/Finished Project!


Yeehaw!!

Now that my oldest is just about ready to lose his third tooth, I decided it was high time to make the family a Tooth Pillow.

Did you have a Tooth Pillow?

I did but Subvet'd never heard of them.

See the little pocket on the front? That's where you put your tooth for the Tooth Fairy. She then comes and takes your tooth and leaves you some money in the pocket.

~~it's easier for the Tooth Fairy than trying to find your tiny tooth under your pillow without waking you up!~~

Once again all the fabric, stuffing and thread came out of my closet. Actually these two fabrics were just what was on the top of the top bin of fabric in the closet. It's a bit wild, but I like how it turned out.

What a great idea! Makes complete and total sense to me as then the tooth doesn't get lost and the Tooth Fairy has very easy access!

Yep, I'd hear of them, but not til I started quilting. The kiddos should love this--all bright and colorful!

It's really cute! This reminds me of the many times the tooth fairy forgot to come, and I would "find" the money under the bed or under the covers, etc. This pillow would make such fakery difficult! :)

Good job and cute. No we never had a tooth pillow or had I heard of one until recently.
