I made this bear from a project on the Martha Stewart website called "Tooth Bear With Cindy." That website has tons of free patterns and project ideas. Anyway, this is a larger version of the tooth bear. I had my husband enlarge the pattern on the copier at work. It is supposed to be really small to fit under a pillow with a tooth in the little pocket. I made one like the original pattern out of pink felt with darker pink pocket that I gave to a friend's little girl, and it turned out really cute. They are handsewn with embroidery thread. I put the kids' names on them, but I think the pictures on the website had a little tooth embroidered on the pocket. At our house, the Tooth Fairy has been at it so long, that she often forgets or is late with her exchange, can you imagine that?! We just don't know what we will do with our scatterbrained Tooth Fairy! She must be getting old. She has even been known to leave something in the morning after everyone is up. She's so sneaky we haven't caught her yet, even in the light of day! A couple of weeks ago she made up for her extreme lateness with a package of baseball cards, which is pretty fancy for this household! Usually it's just four quarters or a dollar bill. She may be late, but she always comes eventually!
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
