little bag

 big things are happening around here, my daughter lost her first tooth!  very exciting.  we decided to make a little bag to put the tooth in for the tooth fairy. 
what is it about a little bag that is so fun to put treasures in??
this bag measures about 4 inches square
i might be catching a "bag making bug".  this is really fun, and i can think of so many other uses, plus I love to see my kids toting them around.

  2. That is cute. Little bags are so fun and you won't have to worry about a small tooth under the pillow! What a great idea!

    I plan on making my kids a little pillow when the time comes. When I was small I spent the night at a friend's house and lost my tooth. They had me put it into a small pillow that hung from the ceiling and had a pocket in front. In the morning there was a 50 cent piece in the pocket. As a child I thought the pillow was magical even though I knew the parents put the money in there. As an adult I think it's magical in that it's an easy way to sneak in and make the swap ;)

  10. I love this! I am a dentist, and my middle child just lost her first tooth, and had me thinking about making tooth pillows for her and for friends' kids...maybe I will switch direction to a bag. Nice!

  13. Congrats to your little one! My oldest has her first loose tooth. I think I'm as excited as she is!

    She doesn't know yet, but she's getting her ears pierced when she looses it.

  16. I love little bags as well. My 2 year old has a bag that he keeps his small plastic farm animals in. For a closure I sewed a hair elastic into the side seam. It has enough stretch to make it easy for him to open, but it can also be wrapped up tight (we don't want any animals escaping, right?)

  17. That is just so cute! And just inspiration I need for making a tooth holder for when the tooth fairy visits our house! Both my kids are currently sporting loose teeth!

  18. What a fun idea!
    I always struggle to find the teeth under the pillow when I'm helping out the tooth fairy in the middle of the night!!

  19. I love the little bag, what a wonderful idea. It is especially wonderful for a tooth, makes it easier on the 'Tooth Fairy' I'm sure. But you could stitch anything you wanted on the little beauty. I'm thinking it would be a great little coin bag too...I can think of lots of other fun uses for it. Thanks for sharing. Hugs...

  23. What a cute little bag! I love the embroidery that compliments the patchwork piecing.

  24. oh so cute.
    Mine just lost her first, by accident. We tried to introduce the tooth fairy, but she balked at the thought of some stranger appearing in her room, (wouldn't we all?) and refused to put it under her pillow. So now she is toothless, and rewardless :)
    I love little drawstring bags, for presents, small toys, craft supplies on-the-go. You name it.

  29. I don't qualify for the Go! giveaway as I already won one (happy dance) but thought you might like to promote your giveaway on the new Quilty Giveaways site (it's free)

  30. That is just beyond cute! Now, what I want to know is did you have time to make it that day? Or did you make the tooth fairy wait awhile? I feel like my kids will have cute kid stuff made fir them at 20!

  31. Thanks for the "test drive" of the Go! Cutter! It was nice to see how it works. I have been worried about the fabric wastage also, but you seem to have that solved. Thanks too for the chance to win! It looks like a great tool for those difficult to cut designs. I can do squares and rectangles all day long, but some are just too much of a pain to mess with.

    Loved your little bags. Great idea! The tooth fairy couldn't find my daughter's tooth one time. Heartbreaking for child and mom. This would make it easy. LOVE it.

    Thanks again for the chance to win.

  32. That's so cute! How did you make that? I am new to the whole sewing thing. I've made three quilts and I'm working on my third. I'd love to make a little bag like that.

  33. I love the idea of a bag. I had a pillow my mom cross stitched with a little pocket and wish I still had it.
