I needed a gift for a sweet girl about to turn six. I am told that she has a loose tooth so I decided to make her a tooth memory book pillow. What? Well, it’s a cloth book to keep track of when teeth come out that has a pocket for the tooth and can be placed under a pillow for the tooth fairy. Let me show you.
I put a first initial on the front and a hook and loop fastener. I used the same materials that I used for my cloth photo album I made a while back, and sewed it basically the same way.
First I decided on a size, picked my fabrics and placed my embellishments on the front and back.
On the inside pages I made a vinyl pocket to hold the card stock date log (or a photo) that I printed on scrap book paper.
I edged the pocket with trim. On the other page I made a tooth pocket and stitched it on leaving the top open so the tooth can be placed inside.
There is hook and loop tape on the pocket to keep it closed. I did a little embroidery on the side so that it wouldn't be so plain on the tooth pocket side. I stitched each page to a sheet of padding, then stitched both pages together using a zig zag stitch leaving the edges raggedy.
It's finished off with a tab closure and a button for cuteness. Easy as pie.
Happy Birthday little one, oops! I mean...... Big Girl!
