Monster Tooth Pillow

Isn't he cute, in a monster sort of way?
I adore this guy-friendly design for a tooth fairy pillow!
I happened to discover it while browsing Suzanne's blog, Just Another Hangup.

I used a medium weight twill for the pillow front and a quilting cotton for the back.
Applique pieces are a mixture of quilting cottons and craft felt.
I used a buttonhole stitch to applique the fabric pieces, and a zig zag stitch for the felt eyes and teeth.

I added a fabric loop at the pillow's top.
It may be hung on a door knob, drawer pull or wall hook, making it a little easier for the Tooth Fairy to find in the dark!
Finished size is approximately 10" square, and it is lightly stuffed with polyfil.

The lower part of his funny face makes a pocket for the surprises and treats
left behind by the Tooth Fairy!

Be sure to visit Suzanne's blog for other creative and fun ideas!
A link to the pattern and instructions for the monster tooth pillow, and a tutorial for applique by machine, may be found in the sidebar of her blog.

And now this little monster pillow is on its way to a special little boy!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

That monster tooth fairy pillow is just so adorable. I'm sure the little boy who receives it will love it.

This is so cute, thanks for sharing, I have a few years before my granddaughters are the age when they start loosing teeth, perhaps I can get it together and make one by then.

This tooth pillow is so funny and useful that it would make a child smile because of its googly eyes and different colors. I'm even tempted to put not just coins but also dollars for the first tooth to be put there. Haha!

My little boy FINALLY has his first wiggly tooth. We look around at tutorials together to see what kids of pillow he would like and he chose this one. I'm so glad because I thought this was the cutest one too! Can't wait to make it. Thanks for sharing! :)
