Wednesday is Pinterest Day

Hi all hows the week going?  Mine is going great.  Have really stuck to my WW points and gone to the gym everyday.  Trying to keep it up for the rest of the week.  So today I have a new series that I am going to start.  I don't know about you but I am addicted to Pinterest.  I actually enjoy it more than watching TV.  So I was thinking that I pin a bunch of stuff that provides great inspiration, but I find I forget about pins with my obsession of pinning more stuff.  So I decided that I would start a series on the blog where I would try one of the pins I found.  It may be a craft project, a recipe, a kids craft, or inspiration from a scrapbook layout.  Whatever it may be, I will share my successes and failures.

So here it goes.  Today I am sharing a sewing project.  We are about to have a first loose tooth in our house and I wanted to make something to hold the tooth under the pillow so we really don't LOOSE that first baby tooth.  Here is the pin I found on Pinterest in my searches :

Now I am a newbie to a sewing machine so getting this done in one day was daunting.  Luckily the pin had a link to the actual directions.  Here is the link to the actual site.  So here is my tooth fairy bag:

I followed the directions on the site to a tee.  I used the template they had for the tooth, obviously I am not good at tracing.  I also used some sew easy floss for the drawstring since I didn't have any yarn.  The one thing I did do different was add a seam to the bottom of the bag.  Again I am paranoid about really loosing that first tooth.  All in all I am really happy with the way it came out and I know my daughter will be super excited to add her tooth for the tooth fairy.

I hope you have enjoyed the start to this series and hope I have reminded you to revisit all those images you have pinned and really use them.  Hope you have a great week.

  1. It turned out great! I was terrified of sewing too and the more projects like this that you do successfully the easier it will become.
