Some sewing was in order. We needed a pillow to house the tooth!
I pulled this together in a bit more than an hour I guess. It's a football as requested by Landon. It's not a baked potato, which I'm aware of its close resemblance. I was all set to make this monster pillow to hold his tooth, but then I had to go rogue when talk of a football came up.
I used my Crop-A-Dile tool to make the grommets. I picked it up years ago at Costco, of all places. then I strung yarn through the holes. I used the free-motion foot on my machine to do the lettering and tooth outline. The little pouch holds the tooth, and the moolah!
So I gave it to Landon with the tooth all tucked in there. When
He was so excited that he woke up at 1:30 in the morning and came running in our room, "The Tooth Fairy left me $2!" and hopped in with us. It's like he was more excited for this than Christmas. Seriously excited.
Then at school he not only got to hear his name over the morning announcements for his birthday but he was looking forward to getting sung "the tooth song" by the class. So sweet, the important things in a 7 year old's world.
