Birthday Box

Here is another box I made little w for his birthday. Even after I witnessed him trying to rip one of the toys off the top, the box still held up. The glue I used should be called "toddler proof".

Tooth fairy pillow prototype

I decided to try my hand at making some crafty things for my little boy's kindy fundraiser. M bought these ridiculous cheap version Snuggies for our little family to wear at a friends party for a laugh. They have definately come in handy for this project. Had an idea for making a tooth pillow, which eventually became this prototype ...

Since its the first one, it needs a bit of tidying up. Overall I'm happy with the tooth shape, but worried that giving it a tutu, fairy wand and wings is too much. I was originally just going to make the tooth with a crown and tiny pocket on the back where you can keep your fallen tooth.

Hmmm ... perhaps I just need to make the wings bigger and drop them lower down the back; embroider the wand (instead of stick on a badly cutout bit of felt); and put the embroidered pocket on a little straighter.

Wonder how many of these I can knock out?
