A Valentine filled with hearts and roses wasn't on the tile this Valentine's Day. Not when you get a phone call with important news. "Grandpa, I've got something exciting to tell you. I lost my first tooth."
Of course, this deserves an important gift. A tooth fairy pillow in which to place that treasured tooth and others to follow.
A lily pad shape was perfect for the pocket.
Nicholas' name was added with machine stitched letters. Because this is not something I do often, this step took a little time as I had to try several times and get out my sewing machine manual. Now that I am more familiar with the technique, I'm brainstorming on other ways I can use this feature. (Do you have any ideas for me?)
When frogs are in the picture, perhaps the tooth fairy looks like a dragonfly? I made this one from two layers of sheer placed on a stabilizer. After I stitched the shape, I trimmed close to the stitching.
Here is my Quilter's Tile for the week, turned tooth fairy pillow ready and waiting to be stuffed and finished.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day, whether there are hearts (or frogs) coming your way.
