Lay the 2 squares on top of each other and start sewing around the edges. Younger kids can use a plastic yarn needle for safety.


Fill with stuffing

Before you finish sewing around the edges of the pillow, leave a 3-inch opening and fill the pillow with stuffing. Once the pillow is stuffed, finish stitching around the edges.


Glue on the tooth

Run a line of fabric glue along the sides and bottom on the back of the felt tooth. Don’t put any glue along the top edge of the tooth.


Ready for the tooth fairy
