Sewing a cushion for the tooth fairy

The other day Lillie said her first tooth was getting wobbly, and I had just the idea.  She hasn't shown much interest in sewing whenever I had suggested it but today she was keen.

So we didn't muck around and chose the fabrics, pink, pink and more pink!  I got her to write her name on paper and we copied it onto the fabric as she has a really cute way of writing the first few letters.


Now for the edge, we decided on blanket stitch, she could do the straight sides then I did the corners, a few pricked fingers, then we remembered we had thimbles. 

A little bit of stuffing and Ta-dah!  Now we just have to wait for the tooth to get really wiggly and fall out.  Proud mummy moment!
