Okay! Let's make a little pillow!
What you'll need:
2 squares (these are 4.5", my first pillows were 6.5") main pillow fabric front and back
1 square (same size as the others) for pillow pocket
1 piece 3"x13" for hanging strap
sewing machine, thread
All seams are 1/4" unless otherwise noted.
Stitch the straps to hold in place at 1/8" as well. Then tuck the strap neatly into the pocket to keep it out of the way when sewing the pillow together.
Pin your remaining pillow square (wrong sides together) to the front. Your pocket and strap are on the inside of the "sandwich" now.
Use a knitting needle or turning tool to poke your corners out nicely and give everything a good press.
And hand-stitch your opening closed. I like to use a ladder stitch because it completely disappears.
I made this version smaller than my previous ones just to see if I like the smaller size better. I do want my kiddos to be clear that the Tooth Fairy only leaves a small surprise. I think either version is fine and it really is such a simple project you could make it any size you choose. Just remember to cut all your squares the same size.
Have fun! If you make a Tooth Fairy Pillow for a special kiddo in your life, I'd love to know about it!
