Deadline Crafter

I have decided that I am a “Deadline Crafter” – meaning I really only craft when I have a deadline looming over my head.  Which is ok – at least I can get my projects done when I need to.

One of my latest creations – a very girly toothfairy pillow for my niece, Little E.  Here’s the back – with the pocket where she will put her tooth, and the toothfairy can leave some loot:

And here is the front, with a ginormous tulle bow!

The next girl toothfairy pillow I make, I think I will either use less tulle, or maybe just a wide ribbon.  There was so much tulle that it made it quite difficult to sew.

There are lots of toothfairy pillow tuts out there – I just used the tooth shape from the Purl Bee, enlarged it, cut 2 pieces of fabric out, sewed together and stuffed.

Here is Little E’s entire birthday gift (the other two items are from Paper Source – a store just opened here in H-town!):

A handmade toothfairy pillow, scented colored pencils and a princess book that she puts together!  A pretty good gift, for a girl who (literally) has everything.  And I love encouraging her artsy side!

I’ve been crafting up a store in preparation for My Pal Al’s baby shower this weekend.  I’ll put up all the goodies I made for her and baby next week – a ton of good stuff, if I do say so myself!
