Not to be left out, the wee boys of our friends, like the wee girls will also start losing their gnashers at some point and since they will be quite unimpressed by anything ‘tooth fairy’, I thought perhaps a ‘tooth truck’ would be more appropriate.
The bucket of the truck is the stash for the tooth and also where the poor cash strapped parents leave the wee person’s dental earnings.
Jessica, who received a tooth fairy cushion recently is lucky enough to get £2 for her teeth and is about to negotiate £5 each for them!!! I thought we were in recession? We may well be but I don’t think the pixies are worried about that.
The cushions are simply the image of the truck or can be customised for each child by adding his name and made to hang on the end of a bed or the back of a chair.
Like all of the images that I design for any of the blanket or cushion blocks, the pictures or hangings, they start out as scribbles and sketches or cuttings from an image I like:-
It’s a hugely fun part of the process and I have a huge arsenal of images that are yet to be used.
I wish I had time to work my way through them all……
Another tooth fairy cushion is winging it’s way to a little girl in the north east of england who is also losing her milk teeth (one down, lots to go!).
I have dispatched the cushion by post with a little card explaining the gift as Jessica has no idea about it.
Her mum also gets an envelope with the letters that are needed to go in the pocket with the payment from the tooth fairy to thank Jessica for her tooth.
I’ve enjoyed making these cushions and have a ‘tooth truck’ in mind for the small boys who will start to lose their teeth soon too.
Think I might make some pouches too.
I saw this wonderful idea on google images a while ago that is just so charming and would add to the whole fun of a tooth fairy and that is a tiny little door that you stick to the skirting that makes it possible for the fairy to get into the room. The concept being that the magic door is put in place only when it is needed. Soooo cute!!!
A few of our friends wee ones are losing their gnashers at the moment. Nothing to worry about, just the usual course of events in 5 or so year olds.
These tooth fairy cushions started when my lovely friend from ‘home’, Linda said that her pixie Jessica had a wobbly tooth. Jessica is a sweet little thing and very girly but unlike nearly ALL other girls, her favourite colour is yellow and not pink. Well done, I say!
I will no doubt have missed an odd tooth but her tooth fairy cushion, in the favourite yellow, will be on it’s way to her soon. I hope it makes her rich!
In the meantime, and at about the same time Millie (who does like pink; very much) started getting wobbly teeth too so I have made her a tooth fairy cushion.
They can be hung on the end of the bed or chair or they can be popped under a pillow, whichever method suits best. Each is customised with the wee ones name on the box that the fairy is doing her magic on and the ‘reward’ for the tooth also goes in the magic box.
Each one comes with a handful of tiny thank you notes from the fairy which mum and dad are responsible for putting in there when they make the all important payment.
