Step 1: Supplies and Cutting Fabric
2 - 8" x 8" square pieces of fabric
(Note: it's really cute if you use two contrasting patterns)
1 - 4" x 4" piece of colored felt (to use as pocket)
1 - small piece of white felt cut in the shape of a tooth (approximately 3" tall by 2.5" wide)
10-12" piece of ribbon to use as hanger for pillow
Needle and embroidery floss (white, brown, blue, or colors of your choice)
Pinking shears are optional but add a nice finish to the edge of the pocket.
Sewing machine or needle and thread to hand sew.
Step One: Cut out your fabric. So you have 2 (even) 8" squares.
I mark mine with a marker and a ruler but you might want to use chalk or a pencil if you're working with light colors. This is a step kids can help do.
Step 2: Cut Out Felt
Use a color that contrasts nicely with your fabric.
You can use pinking shears if you like a zig-zag edge effect.
You will also need to cut out a small white felt tooth shape (approximately 2.5" wide by 3" tall)
Step 3: Embroider A Face On The Felt Tooth
Sew a happy face on your tooth.
You can use simple running stitches or get fancy with french knots and chain stitching.
This is a step that can be done by an adult or a child with supervision.
