Tooth Fairy Monster Pillows with FREE Patterns

Sharing is caring!

Losing teeth can be kinda scary, so a fun Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow can be helpful in easing the kiddos into this transition. 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!

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.

Supplies needed for Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow for Boys and Girls with FREE Patterns Creatively Beth #creativelybeth #toothfairy #fairfieldworld #80daysofpolyfil #polyfil #felt #monster #craft


Layer two pieces of felt and the entire tooth pattern together, securing with straight pins. Cut out with scissors. Repeat this process with tooth pocket patterns, 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.


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's body. I love the bold and bright superhero color combo, which is perfect for a boy or a girl!


Stack all three layers of felt together, lining up the edges and securing them 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.


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 soft stuff, so I use a bit less Poly-Fil. If you prefer harder stuff, use more and pack it tighter.

Once the Tooth Fairy Monster Pillow is stuffed, stitch it closed, using a blanket stitch and the yellow embroidery floss.

Stack a small black button on top of a large colorful button and stitch it 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.

I love crafting everyday items into keepsakes for family and friends. Those projects made with love are extra special gifts. This Easy Upcycled Sweatshirt Pillow Stuffed with Poly-Fil® started out as a Birthday present bought in the wrong size that couldn't be returned. My nephew was totally bummed when he tried to try it on and it was too small. I immediately thought I could turn it into a pillow!
