My most perfect niece cut her first tooth recently, and it got me inspired to commemorate the occasion with a little DIY for her.
I got some felt and cut out two tooth shapes, about 8 inches tall.
Just before I finished the outer stitching, I stuffed the tooth with upcycled shopping bags (so they’d crunch a little and make a cool sound).
I cut out little felt circles for the tooth’s right hand, then a “foam finger” for the left. I glued on the #1, some eyes, and some lips. The final touch was a little rouge from my makeup bag to make the cheeks. (A special note: If you decide to make this for a little one, be sure that you always monitor them while they play with it — there are lots of little glued-on parts that tiny hands might love to tear at!) xoxo
