Tooth Fairy Pillows!!

I finished these 2 cuties up today!  My daughter, Miss K. had to help.  She loves stuffing things.  The girly one is a Tooth Fairy Princess and the boy one is a Tooth Fairy Police Man.  These were super cheap and super fun to make.  Next time I’ll look for thicker felt though because mine was sort of see through.  The mouths on these puppies are a pocket to put the tooth in when they fall out.  The part I like most is these hang on a doorknob so the Tooth Fairy doesn’t need to go digging under pillows in our house again!!!  MMMcrafts has the excellent tutorial on how to make these.  Love her site!

As you can see, Miss K. LOVES hers.

And another positive note today; one of my fabric orders arrived!  I can’t wait to start some more projects.  My mom is gone from her house so I think I’ll go hunt down her serger…. 🙂

And I even was able to make time to enjoy the beautiful snow with Miss K. today; we built a cute fort and used food coloring to “paint” it.  It was a good day.

Another Day, Another Project!

So a few weeks ago my five-year old daughter and I were browsing through the TJ Maxx isles. (I swear I can get lost in that store for hours looking and buying stuff we don’t really need…..) Anyway, we were in the pillow aisle and my daughter starts freaking out for this super cute pillow.  It is dark blue with white embroidered flowers and its a tube-shaped pillow.  The thing was gorgeous!! Anyway it was $25 for ONE pillow….. Yeah, I’m not paying that for something my daughter will probably like for all of ten minutes.  So I tell her that we can make one for her.  She was MAD!  I got to hear all the excuses: you can’t make that exact one, it won’t look like that, it’s too hard for you to make, BUT I love that one!  Needless to say I held my ground (for once) and we left the store pillow-less.  I convinced her that we could make a cuter one with any fabric she choose at the fabric store.  An hour later we were on our way home to make a pillow.  Which starting on it took me a few days longer than I would have liked.  I made this all from my head in what I thought the design should be like.  It was fun to see it turn out.  It is actually a lot longer than I would have liked but she now enjoys chasing our dog and trying to beat her with it….. (not hard of course, back off PETA!!)
