Manfred: the snaggle-toothed he-monster

Yesterday I posted about Brunhilde and the tooth {fairy} pillow I made for my granddaughter. 
Please go here to read that post.

Today I'd like to introduce you to 
the snaggle-toothed he-monster tooth pillow...

This little 10 inch pillow works much the same as his female counterpart, Brunhilde, except this one is for the little boy in your life. Before your little guy goes to bed he deposits his "lost" tooth in the tooth {fairy} pillow, like this...

Sometime during the night the tooth fairy pays a visit, takes the tooth, and leaves him a treasure. When he wakes up in the morning he knows just where to look for his stash!

By reserving this pillow for this special occasion and only bringing it out when there's a lost tooth, it makes this milestone that much more special!

Stay tuned to this blog because later this week I will be sharing the pattern and brief instructions so you too can make a Manfred Tooth Pillow for one of your little guys!

Tomorrow I will post a tutorial on how to apply an applique onto fabric. It's easy! The tutorial will be geared for the beginner sewer! After the reading the tutorial and practicing a little even a beginner sewer should be able to make one of these little Tooth {Fairy} Pillows!

Have a great day!
