Tooth Fairy Pillow

The tooth fairy is scheduled to make her first ever visit to my house this week, so some preparations have been made. I worried about the precious tooth getting lost amidst stuffed animals and pillows and blankets, so I asked the internet for help. I found this cute idea of a tooth fairy pillow over at Sew Mama Sew. Just tuck the tooth inside and hang from a bedpost or door knob. The fairy can then easily and quietly switch it out during the night for a dollar or two (how much does she leave for a tooth these days?).

We just had our first visit from the tooth fair last month! It was very fun. I made a hanging tooth fair pillow too, shaped like a big tooth. My husband went to the bank and discovered they had golden Andrew Johnson $1 coins. So he got 10 of them. The tooth fairy left our son two of them, and he was SO excited to get golden coins!! My husband was originally going to get silver dollars or $2 bills, but the golden $1 coins were even better! Good luck!

Oh, how I wish these pillows had been around when my boys were young. You can't believe how hard it is to find that tooth under the pillow! Such fun times. I really like the idea of the gold coins. Something really special!

Even by hand or by using a sewing machine, you can craft your own tooth fairy pillow to prevent the tooth from being lost. I remembered one time when my granny was making one for my younger cousin's first loose tooth.
