How To Make a Tooth Fairy Pillow Using Foam Crumb
What is a Tooth Fairy Pillow?
What’s a tooth fairy pillow you ask? A tooth fairy pillow is the best way for the tooth fairy to visit without having to squeeze under your child’s pillow at night. The tooth fairy has a hard enough job as it is, having to carry around a bag full of teeth, whilst traveling from home to home. Her job is only made harder, however, by having to strategically replace a tooth with a coin, without waking the kids. Give the tooth fairy a break, help her out by making some fabulous tooth fairy pillows using foam crumb.

To Make Your Tooth Fairy Pillow You’ll Also Need

Let’s Make a Tooth Fairy Pillow!
Begin by sewing the 4” x 4” piece of felt to one of your pieces of fabric. Sew the bottom and sides, leaving the top open. This forms the pocket for where your child’s tooth can be placed. Next, take your piece of ribbon. Pin both ends to the back side of your front piece of fabric. After this, you should pin your two pieces of pillow fabric together, ensure that the ribbon handle is tucked into the middle of both fabric pieces. Now hand sew or machine stitch the left side, the top side (through the ribbon) and the right side.
Ensure that you leave the bottom of your tooth fairy pillow open so that you can stuff it using foam crumb. The next step as you may have already guessed is to take your foam crumb and fill up your pillow. When you’re finished, simply sew the bottom of the pillow shut.
For some extra detail, you could consider adding more to the pocket in order to liven up your tooth fairy pillow even more. Why not cut out a tooth shape, fairy shape or even your child’s initials from felt? Once you’ve done this, you can stitch the shapes to the pocket, before sewing it to your pillow fabric.
