sew & tell v3.18: a tooth fairy pillow

Hey friends!  I hope you have all had a great week!  It's been super busy over here!  I was so excited to entertain my fun friend Karen I met blogging several years ago.  She traveled here to pick up her husband who was coming home from a deployment to Afghanistan.  It's a long fun story about how we met, and in short, I was reminded of the blessings of sweet friends that we may find in unexpected places.

So, I didn't get any sewing in.  But my fun friend Summer of Artfulife has been busy making these adorable tooth fairy pillows!
I love how she fussy cut this darling fabric to make this sweet little pillow.  She has the story of her own childhood tooth fairy pillow as well as a tutorial to make your own.  Go check it out!

And as a side note, Summer and I met online a few years ago.  Somehow she and my friend Karen that I mentioned earlier got to be friends on facebook.  Then the three of us plus another friend (that none of us has met in person yet) started up a little photography project blog (that's on hiatus currently - but maybe not for long!) and I just feel so lucky to know these ladies.   I am strongly reminded often of the blessings of like-minded friends and kindred spirits and I thank you all for being here!

I should have some finishes to share next week.  I'm so close to finishing up several things!

It did seemed like a busy week. But for me, it was last week. Very adorable tooth fairy pillow! To bad my kids are to old for that now. Thanks for sharing!

How nice to spend time with a friend, even if that friend isn't your sewing machine ;-) Summer's pillow is cute, I love the little girl fabric, it's the same one I used on my daughter's apron!

So sweet. It reminds me that we have a first loose tooth in the house.

Thank you for the link! I've been meaning to make one of these for a while now. Thankfully we have no lost teeth but I know it's coming soon. When I was little I spent the night at a friend's house and lost my tooth. They had a small pillow with a pocket on the front hanging from the ceiling. I LOVED that and always told myself I'd make one for my kids.
