A hole punch that will work on fabric is best for making small holes every half inch where the fabric was marked.

Flip the fabric so that the pen marks are on the inside of the pillow and the holes all line up. Thread a large needle with yarn then encourage your kids to sew the pillow shut using a basic running stitch, older children may be able to master a slightly more complicated back stitch.

Stitch the hole closed. Make sure the yarn is tied off so the pillow does not spring a leak.


To make the tooth pocket, cut a small tooth-shaped piece of white felt. Use fabric glue or hot glue to attach the tooth pocket to the pillow. DO NOT glue down the top of the tooth so it serves a pocket.

Encourage the kids to embellish their pillow however they would like by adding features to their tooth or using scissors to fringe the edges of the pillow. With a Jntuanantapur pillow this cute, the tooth fairy is likely to add a little something extra!
