Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow for Boys and Girls with FREE Patterns

I was an avid ice hockey fan growing up, so when I was 7 years old and lost both my front teeth, I was super excited that my hero Bobby Clarke was missing his two front teeth as well! It was comforting and made everything a little less daunting. Little did I know at the time that his teeth were permanently missing from playing ice hockey. Yikes! Losing teeth can be kinda scary, so a fun Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow can be helpful in easing the kiddos into this transition. Inexpensive felt and a few buttons plus my favorite Poly-Fil® from Fairfield World make this project quick and easy.  I even created a free printable pattern to make this project even easier for you.

STEP TWO

Layer two pieces of felt and entire tooth pattern together, securing with straight pins. Cut out with scissors. Repeat this process with tooth pocket pattern, eye patterns, and tooth patterns. Get the kiddos involved in this step by selecting their color scheme. Get creative and use up what you have on hand.

STEP THREE

Attach white felt teeth to the back of the tooth pocket with hot glue. Repeat this process by attaching the felt eyes to the top of each monster body. I love the bold and bright super hero color combo, which is perfect for a boy or a girl!

STEP FOUR

Stack all three layers of felt together, lining up the edges and secure with straight pins. Thread an embroidery needle with floss and blanket stitch the edges, leaving a small two-inch opening at the top for stuffing. For step by step blanket stitch instructions, visit my friend Bev’s blog Flamingo Toes and her Embroidery Tips post, which is my go-to resource! I love the bright mix of contrasting colors.

STEP FIVE

Stuff the Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow with Poly-Fil® from Fairfield World™ through the small opening left at the top. Pull apart small pieces of Poly-Fil and work down into each section of the pillow using a chopstick or pencil. I like a soft stuff, so I use a bit less Poly-Fil. If you prefer a harder stuff, use more and pack it tighter.

STEP SIX

Once the Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow is stuffed, stitch it closed.

STEP SEVEN

Stack a small black button on top of a large colorful button and stitch together with black embroidery floss. Attach the button eyes to the monster with hot glue. This pillow should be used by older children. For smaller children, you can stitch on all elements.
