I decided against a back pocket and went with a mouth pocket instead!

The scraps of material are taking form. But the toothfairy needs a skirt.

Some old buttons make great eyes!

A pretty skirt deserves a beautiful ribbon to tie it off!

My grandgirl called me on a Sunday night to tell me about her first loose tooth. She showed me on FaceTime how wiggly it was. She was excited and scared. I looked through my bag of scraps and ribbons and buttons while we were still on the phone. She inquisitively asked, “Sweet? What are you doing?” “Oh just about to put together a little somethin’ somethin’.”

Coins and teeth fit snuggly in the mouth pocket!

I delivered it on Monday and her tooth came out on Tuesday! Transforming ordinary things into precious heirlooms! This is the only way I know how to make memories that will last.
