I told her I wasn't "prepared" for this, "I haven't sewn you a tooth fairy pillow yet."
The all-knowing Miss Lily said, don't worry Mum, the tooth fairy plucked it right out of my mouth in the middle of the night. We have never found the missing tooth.
I knew I had to be ready for the next tooth, so I started my research on tooth fairy pillows.
I felt this sense of urgency that it had to be done that day. I ultimately embarked on Goody Goody's Matryoshka pillow, with a few deviations - I made the face in felt and added grosgrain loop to the top (for storage purposes) and a little embellishment to the pocket).
PS: I am going to share my "extensive tooth fairy pillow research" with you. Here are some other amazing options. I love them all and if I were oc (jury out), I would make a different one for each tooth. Well, maybe I will.

PPS. the main fabric is Dena Design Rambling Rose for FreeSpirit , I used it on a quilted rocking horse cover as well. It works well with denim. My girls have outgrown this rocking horse and we are giving it with the new seat pad to our sweet little neighbour.
