I have seen these cute little pillows on Pinterest, but none of the shapes were quite what I wanted, so I sketched out my own tooth template. It took a few tries to get it to look more like a tooth and less like angel wings, but I got it. I've included my template and the instructions to you can make your own.

1 sheet of white felt (I used glitter felt)
black embroidery floss
pink embroidery floss
2 black buttons
2 pink buttons
hot glue (optional)
First, let me say you can put this together using hot glue, or by sewing it together. It will look great either way, but I chose to use my sewing machine.
Fold one sheet of felt in half hamburger style. Yes, I said hamburger style. I have a first grader! :)
Pin the tooth template to the felt and cut it out. This will give you 2 teeth.
Embroider the mouth on the front of the tooth and sew on your buttons.
Cut out a small square or triangle of white felt and sew it on 3 sides to the back tooth. This will be your tooth/money pocket.
Put your tooth panels wrong sides together and glue/sew around leaving enough room at the top center to add the stuffing.
After you have added your stuffing make a loop with your ribbon and sew/glue the rest of the pillow with the ends of the ribbon the on the inside. If you don't want to hang your pillow you can just skip the ribbon.
Now just wait for your munchkin to lose his or her tooth. Samantha's tooth fell out an hour after I finished making the pillow. Talk about good timing!
