Tooth Fairy Pillow

If you read my very first post, 10 Crafts You Must Try, then you know that I am also a crochet designer. One of my very first designs was a Tooth Fairy Pillow and it's also one of my favorites. Once I had it finished, I was so excited, it gave me butterflies!

So, I thought it would be really fun to recreate it as my first sewing pattern. You can also get the free Crochet version HERE.

11. Pin or clip the two circles together, with the right sides touching, and sew around the outside, using a 1/4" seam allowance. Leave a 1.5" opening at the top for turning.

12. Notch all the way around the outside of the circle, so that the point of each triangle is up against the seam. Be careful not to cut through the stitches!

13. Turn pillow right sides out and stuff. The pillow should be firmly stuffed, to make it a round circle, but don't over stuff, so the seams don't break.

14. Sew (or glue) the opening shut.
