A New Smile to Love

My first child has lost her first tooth. How exciting!

I had seen lil tooth pillows that you could purchase from Etsy and, of course, never got around to ordering one. Saturday night, Harold wiggled her tooth and said that he thought it would fall out that very night... great! I did a lil searching on-line and decided that I had to just make one and call it a day. This is what happens when you procrastinate - you end up pulling apart your office closet looking for embroidery thread, felt and anything else you can find!

This is what I came up with...

What do you think? Not too bad if I say so myself! Isabella loved it... and in her favorite color of blue. I went ahead and made one for Lucia because let's face it, it's either now or never. I made her's a lil different - part of the ladybug wing is her tooth "pocket" instead of an attached pocket like Isabella's.

So all that running around and Isabella's tooth fell out tonight, Tuesday - not Saturday. Grrr... do you know what I could have done with my Saturday night instead of sewing tooth pillows? ;)

How perfect that you thought it would fall out on Saturday - cause you know you couldn't have done that on Tuesday! They are adorable.

They are so cute! Awesome job mommy! Would you mind if I stole your idea? My girls would LOVE these.
