Maia has been trying to wiggle her teeth loose since kindergarten when one of her classmates lost a tooth. Finally, last Friday, she noticed Two were loose (both lower central incisors)! Since I was already procrastinating on Halloween costumes, I decided to divert my attention even further from them and whip up a little tooth pillow for that momentous occasion. Maia chose the fabric from my stash. Then I drew two designs for her to chose from and this was the result:
|Back of the pillow - I found a Baby Anbesol printable primary tooth chart and just copied into MSPaint, cropped a little and printed it onto printable fabric. Then I fused lightweight interfacing to the back of the chart, pinked the edges and stitched it onto the back of the pillow with variegated thread.|
What is the going rate for baby teeth these days anyway? A toothbrush? Floss? A dollar? My brothers and I didn't grow up with the tooth fairy so I am probably going to let something slip. It happens every year around Christmas time with Santa Claus. Thankfully, Maia hasn't caught on yet. Hopefully I won't ruin the magic.
