I have recently been
All I did was cut out two pieces of felt in the shape of a heart. You could do a tooth, truck, star, circle for a baseball or any shape you desire. The basic idea behind this non pillow, tooth"pillow" is that it can either go under the child's bed pillow, hang on a door knob or hang on a bed post. Whatever the child chooses.
I even created a secret pocket for the tooth. See it there in the side?
The front pocket is for the money. Here is where this tooth pillow needs an improvement. I used a single ribbon on the front to create the pocket. It is not quite high enough to really do a good job holding the money. Either use two ribbons sewn together or make a pocket out of fabric.
Here is what I did:
To one of the hearts you need to sew on your front pocket.
Placing the two hearts back together (pocket facing out) I sewed a Zig Zag stitch around the heart (I folded the ribbon handle in half and inserted it between the two hearts)
Make sure you leave an opening for the secret pocket.
I then sewed on another ribbon just under the secret pocket this will keep the tooth from falling all the way inside the pillow.
Lastly I sewed down the two sides of the secret pocket. So it ended up creating a square pocket.
Or you could use the secret pocket for money.
You could stuff this and actually make it into a pillow.
