I love it! I got the idea from the At Home in the Northwest blog but changed it a little. The instructions said to use felt and stuffing for the inside to make it a poofy pillow but I wanted to use all materials I already had in our house. So, I used scraps from a recycled t-shirts (one white and another blue) that I had cut up to make upcycled t-shirt scarves. I also used buttons for the eyes. I didn't have any stuffing for the pillow but had a BUNCH of matting left over from another project so I used 4 sheets of that. You can find the pattern for the tooth and pocket by clicking here.
You will need material for the tooth, filler (batting or stuffing), scissors, pattern, either buttons for the eyes or material for the eyes. It also calls for pink material for cheeks but I elected not to do the pink and just sewed cheeks using the stitch.
I think it came out cute but more importantly Dominic loves it also!
Now we're just waiting for his tooth to fall out!
Dominic also started soccer lessons yesterday.. he was having fun until he and another boy ran into each other and face planted each other.
