A couple of weeks ago, E lost her first tooth. It caught me completely by surprise and she ended up swallowing it (along with her second loose tooth last weekend, despite the fact that I kept checking that one! Oh well). Sometimes I forget that even though her development is nothing like a typical six-year-old, things like losing teeth are still going to happen at the normal times.
As soon as I saw that little gap, though, I decided to sew up a tooth fairy pillow for her. O has one, but I wanted her to have her own also.
I based it on these super cute ones on Etsy. It was a quick little project. Sewing on the buttons and embroidering the smile took the longest, and even that was fast.
It makes me smile every time I look at it.
