I'm so very excited about our newly designed tooth fairy pillows! I adore my old version with the sweet little hand embroidered tooth, but the fact of the matter was that they were taking me too long to make for what I felt was reasonable to charge for them. I didn't want to make them anymore & well, you learn in this business that if it's not enjoyable to create the items, then you end up unhappy & you lack motivation & it takes you even longer to make everything because you loose that excitement & that pep in your step. (That last sentence was too long, but you get what I'm saying.) Also, I didn't want to stop making the tooth fairy pillows altogether because I can see in my shop stats that they are very highly searched in my shop. Which means that people want them. And I want to give people what they want.
Since coming out of my pregnancy funk, I am feeling more inspired these days & well, I'm riding that wave & taking my products to the next level. I've become a bit obsessed with Spoonflower & decided to have Dylan design my tooth fairy pillow pockets so that they could be printed onto fabric that I could simply cut & start sewing. So we made it happen & my fabric arrived in the mail last week.
I love his design! Sadie & Claire really love that the tooth has teeth & so do I.
I spent the last few days getting to work on these puppies. I've got a local craft show coming up next week (I'll post the info on that tomorrow) so I need some for that & I just was excited to see them made! So I have them sitting around the house in various stages of completion. They've all been cut & paired up with the pillow fabric:
Some are now sewn together waiting to be stuffed:
And a laundry basket of pillows that are stuffed but waiting to be sewn shut:
Oh, I'm so excited about these. I'll let you know when they're up in the shop. Soon!!
