|the finished tooth fairy bag :)|
i thought making this gorgeous little bag by molly at the purl bee might remind us more about - one, putting the tooth under the pillow and, two, hopefully the tooth fairy being a little less delayed in turning up ;) i plan to safety pin it to the side of the pillow so its a visual reminder there needs to be a visit later in the night! i pinned molly's creation to my sewing diy board on pinterest.
molly, who made these gorgeous tooth fairy bags even provides you with a template for the tooth pocket ... yeehaa! i chose a light blue felt figuring it would work for both gender kids. you also need some ribbon, white felt, and some embroidery floss to complete the bag.

outcome: i made this watching the rugby on tv tonight and it was a joy to make. so much so i plan to give one to every future new born baby i know so their parents can do a better job of the tooth fairy thing than steve and i did! really cool outcome, hopefully this will spur steve and i on to do a better job of remembering this childhood tradition.
my thanks to molly at the purl bee, i absolutely love this website. its full of such wonderful diy craft's and this is not the first creation i have made from a tutorial on this site! molly's sketchbook tutorial is brilliant and really comprehensive which makes it doable for anybody, regardless of crafting ability :)
