The Tooth Fairy will never have an issue finding those newly lost teeth when they are kept safe and sound in an Easy No-Sew Tooth Pocket. Kunin® Classic™ Felt comes is a wide variety of colors, so you can match the pocket with each of your kiddos’ favorite shade. The perfect size to tuck under their pillow.
Time: 15 Minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
YOU WILL NEED:
- Kunin® Classics™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – White, Candy Pink, Light Pink, Lagoon, Neon Green, Orchid
- E6000 Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue
- Wiggle Eyes
- Fine Tip Black Marker
- Pinking Shears
- Straight Pins
- Binder Clips or Clothespins – Six
- TOOTH POCKET PATTERNS
To begin the Easy No-Sew Tooth Pockets, gather all supplies. Download, print and roughly cut out the pattern sheet. Use the colors as outlined above or create a pocket with your own style and color palette.
Attach the paper tooth pattern to White Kunin® Classic™ Felt craft cuts with straight pins, and then cut out with scissors (regular, straight scissors). You can also trace the patterns onto the felt with a marker, just make sure to cut inside the traced line for a clean, finished project.
Attach the pocket pattern to Candy Pink, Lagoon, Orchid, and/or Neon Green Kunin® Classic™ Felt craft cuts with straight pins along the 9” length. Then cut out with pinking shears (I used a traditional zig zag and a fun scalloped version).
Using the pocket pattern, or a ruler, fold up the bottom edge 3.5” and press gently with your fingers to create a fold line.
Apply a line of Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue along the left and right edges, then fold to create the pocket. Secure with clips.
Using the pocket pattern, or a ruler, fold down the top edge 1” and press gently with your fingers to create a fold line. Apply a line of Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue along the inside of the fold mark, then fold to create the pocket flap. Secure with clips and allow glue to dry.
To create the tooth pocket, apply Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue around the edge of the felt tooth, leaving the top open, and then attach to the front. Set aside and allow glue to dry.
Create the tooth face by cutting squares from Light Pink Kunin® Classic™ Felt craft cuts with scissors. Then cut those squares into circles for the cheeks. Attach two wiggle eyes and two cheeks to the tooth with Fabri-Fuse and let dry.
To finish the Easy No-Sew Tooth Pockets, draw a smile from cheek to cheek, using a fine tip permanent black marker.
