My Kindergarten-er recently informed me that he had a loose tooth . . . and sure enough, it was loose. Really loose. So I decided to make a little something for lost teeth. I have seen a lot of ideas floating around out there . . . but I like simple. So, simple it was going to be.
I took some leftover pieces of felt. Out of the white I cut out a tooth shape. With the green (his favorite color) I cut a 3x6 1/2 rectangle.
Then I hand-stitched the tooth onto the top half of the felt rectangle. I left the top part of the tooth open to make a sort of pocket.
Next, I folded the green felt in half, length-wise, with the tooth on the outside. I then proceeded to stitch around the edge, again leaving the top open.
And there you have it. A tooth pocket... with a pocket for the lost tooth and another for the money that the tooth fairy leaves. Nice and simple.
And I made it not a moment too soon. He lost his tooth that very night.
