Organising Chaos

trying to bring beauty and order into a busy life

Older Monkey has lost a good few teeth already. Every time there was a wobbly tooth there used to be a little panic that the tooth will fall out in the yard, in school, while playing in the garden and that it wouldn’t be found. The real fear was of course that he would have nothing to give to the Tooth Fairy and that he wouldn’t get his coin.

I decided to make a little tooth pouch that would fit in his pocket so we could carry it with him at all times. It can later be put under the pillow so the Tooth Fairy knows where to collect the tooth from.

All you need to make these tooth pouches is some white felt and some different coloured felt, wool, white thread and some stick-on velcro. You can download a tooth silhouette from internet or try your hand at drawing it on your own, and cut it out of the white felt. Cut some colorful felt stripes 15 cm long by 5 cm wide. You will be folding the felt about 6.5 cms from the top so center the tooth profile on the top part of the strip and stitch it using the white thread.

Fold the strip 6.5 cm from the top and using the white wool, sew around to close the pouch. Use a tiny bit of stick-on velcro to close the pouch and it is now ready to use.

I personalized the ones for my kids by adding their initials to them. They are delighted with them and they bring them everywhere now. Chaotic Monkey keeps checking his teeth in the hope that one of them will be loose. One of them will be soon, and the tooth will be safe.,

Have an amazing weekend,
