I promised my daughter we'd make a pillow to hold her teeth, now that number SIX is about to come out. Have I mentioned she's not yet five?
I "conveniently" forgot to remind her to put the first five teeth under her pillow, given that she gets a lot of treats and presents already, but everyone asks her what the tooth fairy has brought her, so this time she wouldn't be distracted :p
Anyway, she wanted an owl, and this is what we decided on. She picked the colours, I did the work ;)
I used the Pink Cat Studio Cuddles digital image (for paper piecing) that I received when PCS was first trying the electronic/hand-cut files. Do you remember this card and this layout? I didn't have a marker that worked well on the felt (and I wanted to work fast) so I printed out the shapes and quickly cut them out.
Then I spent the time embroidering the entire thing. This is only my second embroidery project - my daughter's stocking was the first!
I made a little pocket (to the right of the owl) to hold the tooth.
I used PTI felt for everything I could, and the cheap felt I had for the rest. Wow, the difference is AMAZING! PTI felt is so thick and sturdy. I wish I had more colours so I could have done the entire thing in their felt!
