Kids: Tooth Fairy Pillow

Well, I've been noodling the idea of a tooth fairy pillow for the shop for a while. I've tried big pockets and small pockets and everything in between. But finally I think I've found something I like. With these particular personalized pillows, there'll be no question in the Tooth Fairy's mind just who's tooth she's whisking away.

Bigger pocket to accommodate a letter to (or from) the tooth fairy and then whatever you happen to put the tooth in. What does one put a tooth in? Sandwich bag? Ewwwww. Anyway, each keepsake pillow is handmade with care, of course. Embroidered fabric pillow holds a child's tooth in the pocket while waiting for the Fairy's special delivery.

I hand embroidered this child's name on the pocket and also added the fairy (which loosely resembles the actual child) for displaying as a decorative pillow. This one is 12" square. And the back is an envelope back, completely removable and somewhat washable.

I'm not sure what I'll do for boy pillows. Requests? Ideas?
