Easy Sewing Tutorial & FREE Tooth Fairy Certificate Printable - SimplyGloria.com

When I was a little girl, I’d put my lost tooth into the pocket of my pink Tooth Fairy pillow.  She’d come in the middle of the night and  replace it with a coin.

Even though my older boys are long gone with loosing their baby teeth, I still have a younger one that is popping them out like popcorn!

The Tooth Fairy does different things in all the different homes around.  In fact, it’s a lot different from when my older son Levi was little, compared with my youngest.  (15 years apart!)  Every child is different…at least all my boys are from each other!  My Levi was content with the coin(s) for a lost tooth left in a baggie, placed under his pillow.  My middle son Gatlon was needing some fast cash for something and pulled yanked a (loose) molar with needle nose pliers!  And, my Easton LOVES precious tiny stuffed animals…so the Tooth Fairy brings those instead of cash/coins.

I want to show you how simple it is to sew a Tooth Fairy pillow for your little one or someone you know.  I’ll remind you that I am NOT a professional seamstress…I don’t use patterns.  This is simple for any beginner!  Here is my version, easy step by step tutorial

I chose 2 different patterned fabrics– back and front.  (And the front pocket is made with the same back fabric.)

Tooth Fairy Pillow1

You’ll need 1/4 yard of each kind design of fabric.  There will plenty of scraps left.  (Unless you do all in the same fabric, 1/4 yard is just fine for the whole pillow.)  Cut 11″x 9″.  For the tooth pocket, cut a piece of fabric (the same as the back fabric)  4″ x 3″.  And 1 1/2 yards of 1 1/2″-2″ wide ribbon.

Tooth Fairy Pillow2

Iron and press the seams of the pocket before sewing.  Fold the seam on all sides about 1/4″.  (I know, I’m obviously not too worried about burning my craft table.)

Tooth Fairy Pillow3

Sew the pocket seams on all pressed four sides with a straight stitch.  And a second row of straight stitch on the open part of the pocket, before you start to sew onto the front side of the (front) pillow side.  (see below.)

Tooth Fairy Pillow4

Go around and finish sewing the pocket with the rest of the second row of straight stitch.  (My straight pins were done holding it into place and I just pinned them off to the side…as to not confuse you.)

Tooth Fairy Pillow5

Cut and divide your wide ribbon in half, one for each side.  Sew ribbon onto the backside of the (front) pillow fabric, starting 2″ from the outer edge.  Then face both fabrics together (looks inside out) and sew 1/4″ all along the edges of the sides, bottom and the 2″ before the ribbon.  Leave the top middle part of the pillow and near the ribbons undone.  Turn pillow inside out…

Tooth Fairy Pillow6

Fold over the fabric to form a seam on top of the ribbon to finish sewing together.  Leave between the ribbons undone to stuff.

Tooth Fairy Pillow8

I cut out the (front) fabric scrap piece to add more pizazz onto the already sewn on pocket.

Tooth Fairy Pillow9

That’s right, pull out the glue gun and glue the “symbol” onto the pocket.  (It is still on after 1 1/2 of use!  Besides, it is tied onto the bed, it’s not a toy pillow…it’s a Tooth Pillow!)

Tooth Fairy Pillow10

Start stuffing it with cotton stuffing until it’s filled enough for feel.  I had my Easton help with the whole process…because the Tooth Fairy was coming any day for his first tooth!

Tooth Fairy Pillow11

This part does not really need to be fancy.  Hand stitch the area (between the ribbons) after filling with stuffing.

Now you have a special pillow for your little one when they pull out their tooth.  The pocket assures there is no tooth getting lost after going to bed.  And, with the pillow tied in a special spot…also assures it will always be ready for the Tooth Fairy!!

      You can bet I thought of you (and your new machine) when I was writing this! I think I told you this, but I’ve had mine for (I think) 8 years…and I pretty much just use the straight stitch…and create very simple things. (The Ruffled Curtains were more simple than I thought.) Cindy, you can so do it! Hugs!

    This is so cute and creative! My nephew prefers coins himself when he lost his baby teeth. He also set aside milk and cookies for the tooth fairy on the nights he’s expecting her (haha too funny! :)). Batman used to be his favorite but he has since moved on to other cartoon characters (he’s 10). This post reminded me of him (and gave me a chuckle). Thanks Gloria. Love this post! :)
