Do You Believe in the Tooth Fairy?

Waiting for the Tooth Fairy, McCall's Quick Quilts October/November 2013

If you do, I've got just the little project for you...a tooth fairy pillow! The pattern is in the October/November 2013 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts which is just now reaching subscriber mailboxes and newsstands.

This pillow was such fun to design and make! It's going to go to the granddaughter of our office manager Jane. Did you notice the pocket for the baby tooth, and later the surprise from the tooth fairy?

When I got the pillow back from photography, it still had the dollar bill in it! I returned the dollar, but it really brought back lost tooth memories. Here's a detail of the tooth fairy:

He's a happy worker, for sure. I tried to make the toothbrush look a little magical with the metallic stars embroidered around it. The magic is in the brushing, everybody.

Oh, and don't forget to floss!


  1. Oh so sweet! A keepsake for a little one for years to come.

    1. Thanks, Suz. It really was fun to make, and Jane says her granddaughter will love it.
