Max has worked out the secret of the tooth fairy. How did that happen so soon!
Well it happened because Max lost his tooth after very little wiggling, quietly placed it in his tooth fairy pocket and waited for the tooth fairy to come.
Since Jason and I had no idea a tooth had been lost, there was a sad boy in our home the next morning. And before long he had joined the dots about what this all meant.
So now he is in on the secret for his brother and sister, and I think in a way that makes it even more exciting.
It has had me realise that for Ruby I need to keep her tooth fairy pocket packed away and only hang it out when a tooth is residing in the little pocket.
The trouble is that I adore Max’ tooth fairy pocket so much, that it has been hanging as a piece of art on his wall for sometime now.
His lovely tooth fairy pocket (blue with a golden spiral), made by a wonderfully crafty friend Ronnie inspired me to make a similar tooth fairy pocket for Ruby (the rainbow).
Both pockets are around the size of a breakfast bowl. They have a special pocket to hold recently lost teeth and a felted tooth fairy showing the way to the *real tooth fairy*
And the *real tooth fairy* will make its appearance as long as it knows to!
The tooth fairy that visits these parts leaves the shiniest gold coin it can find.
We’ve found that such a gold coin and the sweet innocent idea of the tooth fairy to be magic enough. Well, if the tooth fairy comes that is!
You can see my other felted piece here and I will soon share a felted story apron too (here is a sneak peak).

That is just gorgeous. What lovely soft places to leave a tooth. Good idea to put it away unless a tooth falls out! Well done for the beautiful rainbow. The tooth fairy once forgot to come for my ten year old (totally forgot -and am usually so good at these kinds of things!) and she said she didn’t believe anymore and even hated the fairy!! but I said maybe she had been busy that night or sick and that it was best to leave the tooth and wait and see. The tooth fairy left two shiny coins later that day and her faith is restored. I guess it really depends how much the child still wants to believe. My daughter is on the cusp, but she still so wants to stay young and innocent, so I think she is going with the flow. It is fun to have your son involved in creating the magic. Very inspiring project.
