Looth Tooth

We've hit the big time in our house! First loose tooth ever! Woo Hoo!!
(of course, this means first tooth fairy pillow, too!)

There's a lot of excitement about the tooth and a lot of questions about the Tooth Fairy which I am sorely lacking knowledge of. Every Christmas, I dread the great Santa Lie because I am a terrible liar. Just ask my husband. I am the worst liar you'll ever meet. As a result, I am a consummate rule follower. 

Speed limit? I follow it. 
Kid accidentally shoplifts? We take it back.

So lying about mythical creatures does not come easily for me. 
Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, get the idea.

But even if I can't lie, I can sew! 
 And, being the sly Mommy I am, I managed to skirt all the fictitious fairy questions by emphasizing how really really cool his tooth pillow would be and how much said fairy would like it and want to put money in it.

My kindergartener's tooth pillow just waiting to be filled with that first tooth...


And if one pillow is good, I might as well make a second one for my 4 year old while I'm at it. 
Who knows when he'll get his first loose tooth. Right?


To avoid confusion, I added twill tape tags to them and will write the boys' names in fine point sharpie so no one will later argue over who's pillow is whose...yah, we've been down that road before.

Oh, and I couldn't resist using different fabrics front & back.
What is a milestone without some sewing?
And what is sewing without some visual interest?
I knew you'd get it.
That's why I like having you around.
