Blast from the Past

This card is a blast from the past, but no less beautiful for being that.

I'll start off by admiting that this fancy fold card is not the easiest card on the planet to make. but it is one of the most satisfying.  I've chosen is beautiful iris stamp to showcase on this card.



The flowers can be bought here.
The stamp which is from, Stampinback, here.

Tooth Fairy Pillow

I've seen lots of Tooth Fairy pillows are being posted on Pinterest. I thought that they looked cute but they needed a Craft Fairy makeover. So I decided to make a bright and cheerful one that can be used for other things once the teeth have all fallen out.


This ├╝ber cute tooth fairy pillow is only 10cm wide. Just the right size for slipping under the child's pillow on the bed.

The pocket is formed by laying a piece of pink felt over the white base. Remember to sew the sides closed but to leave the top open. Sew the pompom trim to the pink felt before sewing the sides of the pillow.

It is made from:

Baby Pink 30% Wool Craft Felt
White Felt 30% Wool Blend 
Shocking Pink Pom Pom Trim, 25mm 
Black Swiss Dot Ribbon Bows Centre Stitch

I also used a pink thread for the blanket stitch and sewing on the bow.

The pillow is stuffed with white pillow filling.

Felt is currently unavailable on Craft Fairy so please contact me for a supply.
