On a recent visit to the pediatric dentist, we found out that, according to x-rays, Mr. P's baby bottom teeth should be wiggling loose in the next few months. This was big news!
It called for a sewing project.
I present you with the Tooth Pillow Tutorial: A tooth-shaped plushie with a pillow mouth to store teeth in.
There's lots of wiggle room here (pun intended) for variation. You can get fancier with the eyes and general facial expression by gluing, instead of sewing these pieces on. The mouth should be sewn though, in order to create a pocket for the tooth.
Using a string, attach your child's tooth to the nearest doorknob and slam! Just kidding! Patiently wait for your child's loose tooth to fall out and have them place their tooth in the pillow!
