Calla lost her first tooth a few weeks ago. Harper wanted to make her a tooth fairy pillow just like the one I had made her a few years ago. One thing that Harper wrote on her “Summer List” was to sew with her mama. Perfect!
This pillow is very simple and is a great sewing project to do with kids. You can really add personality to this simple project by your fabric selection. Harper had fun picking the perfect fabric for Calla. This pillow can work for boys and girls. The pocket is big enough for teeth and a note to the tooth fairy.
