A different sort of pillow

What do you do with the tooth that falls out and the tooth fairy has yet to collect? you leave them in a jar? or leave them on a tissue? or.....

Yeap I googled it and found that you can have tooth Fairy pillows.  So I made one.

I will save you from a picture of the tooth.  It did however work a treat.  She didn't let her tooth out of her sight from the moment it fell out so I was scared that she would hang onto it all night and the tooth fairy would not be able to find it and retrieve it.  I did convince her to put it in the cushion's pocket and she slept on it.

Much easier to retrieve the tooth in the night using the pillow

Loving crochet...

My latest project.  Lots of these...

To become

It will be a cushion.  One side is finished just have to start the other side. 

And I have decided that I will make a queen size rug using either this block

or this one (however I think this one "eats" more wool).
