Tooth Fairy Pillow

Round pillow with felt tooth pocket

I began designing crochet patterns five years ago this past November. I started out as a handmaker and I designed patterns here and there to sell in my shop. It didn’t take me long to realize that I was very much in love with the designing aspect.

One of my very first designs was the Tooth Fairy Pillow and I think I was more excited about these than anything I had made or designed before them!

So, recently I started another craft blog, She’s So Creative (it’s a WIP 😉 ), and I decided to recreate these Tooth Fairy Pillows as my first sewing pattern!

But, how could I have that pattern be free and not this one? Well, that’s why it’s now up on my blog! Woohoo!

Excited to make one? Here’s how:
