Crafting Along With needle and thREAD

Another week of small projects!

My nephew, codename: Monkey, lost his 1st tooth. 

He is only 4.5 years old and no one even realized his tooth was loose.
So no "tooth fairy" prep had been done.

After a call from my sister, requesting a tooth fairy pillow STAT, I whipped up a little monster pillow after playschool. I used this cute pattern from the long thread and then added some hair to make it unique and funky!

He turned out pretty cute!

Another little project I managed to fit in was making skinny jeans out of a pair of boot-cut jeans I already owned. I like them and plan to do another pair!

Am I rockin' the garden clogs or what!  Hands down these are my favorite outside shoes.  When we saw they were being discontinued, my mama bought me two extra pair for Christmas 2011.
