Tooth Fairy Pillow from Voile and Vintage Embroidery
My first born child lost her first tooth tonight! She was brave and let her Dad pull it. What a fun Father's Day gift for him. But, being the procrastinator that I am, I didn't have anything special to commemorate the occasion.
First a big thanks to Great Grandma who bought both of my girls a
silver dollar when they were born. This beautiful coin will be the
perfect first dollar that the tooth fairy can leave behind tonight.
I looked through some vintage pieces of doily stuff
handed down from another Great Grandmother. Not necessarily
heirlooms...she just had a collection of things in her linen closet, most with stains. I
found a piece with small flowers embroidered on it. It makes a charming pocket to hold a tooth that can be exchanged for a coin.
The rest of the pillow is made from voile. Anna Maria Horner and Tina Givens. Soft and sweet for a great girl!
