the tooth fairy conundrum

With Leland turning 6, I knew our Tooth Fairy days would soon be upon us. I've been searching for the perfect poem to stitch into a tooth fairy pillow. I thought I would create a small pillow square with a pocket for the tooth and money exchange, and stitch the poem on it. I didn't really like any of the poems I found on line, so I just kept looking. I also couldn't decide whether to make just 1 tooth fairy pillow for all the grandbabies to share, or to make 1 for the boys and 1 for the girls... or should I make one for each of the kids, and put their names on them?

I just stumbled across the perfect solution! This is so wonderful, I know I'll have to make one for each of the grandbabies, using their favorite colors and characters. Hopefully, they'll even have these to use with their own children some day. This blog is full of great craft ideas and free patterns. The tooth fairy pillow is perfect, the pdf directions are easy to follow, and there are photos for both boys and girls TF pillows.

Tell me about your Tooth Fairy traditions!

  1. Here in France it's not a tooth fairy, it's a Tooth Little Mouse =D
    The little mouse comes at night and leaves a present under our pillow if we leave our tooth under the pillow =D
    After we collect our teeth in a special little box :)
    it's a great idea to have a special little pillow for the tooth ! I'll have to think about this :)
    Thanks for your comment on my thank you card on MS blog :)
