Handmade Wool Felt tooth fairy pillow

I have itched to produce some more handmade items to sell in my shop on Etsy.  I drafted a pattern and got started stitching together an adorable kid’s tooth fairy pillow.

As I started to sew the pockets to the pillow, I thought, “These would be so cute with eyes!” so I began to give each one a set of eyes or closed eyelids!

Then I blanket stitch around the edges, leaving a small hole to stuff the pillow with polyfill. I thought it might be the best against dust and allergens.

They are so adorable! I would have loved this as a kid; I bet the tooth fairy would have loved this also!

As I was finishing them up, I had a great sense of accomplishment. I finished the first significant (more than 5) project of handmade items for Etsy in probably four years since we opened Sew Dayton.  I am constantly researching, taking online classes, trying new teaching techniques, making graphics for posts, reconciling bookkeeping, or updating the website, even during my weekends off. I am a bit of a workaholic on parts I excel in. I enjoy doing all of those items. I missed making things to sell.

So starting in April, I decided on my time off, I was off.  I needed to do this for my mental health, and it has been fantastic! I even was able to finish a few top-secret projects last month that I can’t wait to tell you all about… ok, sorry for getting off track, back to the tooth fairy pillows! 

All the tooth fairy pillow cuties in a row, now listed on Etsy!

I hope they will enjoy and cherish their purchase by making something and seeing the smile in people’s eyes when they buy anything I have made.  It’s all about memories and connections, and it’s so rewarding to make people smile and happy. That’s what I love! Confident, Creative, Energy!

Just remember to do your thing, don’t let anyone (even yourself) rain on your parade! Also, if you’re the only one marching, march on!! You got this!

Thanks for reading!!
