My oldest just turned 6 last month and he is so excited because he finally has a loose tooth. I think that he thought he was never going to lose one, most of his friends have lost teeth and I think he was feeling left out.
I have to be real honest I am glad that it has taken this long, because think the whole process of loosing teeth is gross. I am not looking forward to that dangling dead tooth, they seem to want to wiggle every chance they get. Yuck!
So off to Pinterest I went looking for ideas for a Tooth Fairy Pillow. I loved the idea of taking the picture of all the teeth they will lose and putting it on the pillow, so you can write the date next to the tooth. I am hoping this is a fail proof method for me to keep track of when the boys lose their teeth. Because well…lets just say their baby books are not really up-to-date. I mean if you count shoving the doctors report of their height and weight at their yearly check -up updating their baby book, then I am rocking it!
So here is what I came up with, the back pocket has the picture of the teeth with lines for writing the dates down. I used Riley Blake Chevron fabric in navy and orange. And I love how it turned out.
I will post a tutorial on this tooth fairy pillow later on in the week with instructions on how to print the teeth on fabric!
