How to Start a Craft Business - Try Denim Tooth Fairy Pillows
Rustic Denim Tooth Fair Pillow
This is a really cool project to make and many embellishments can be added. All you need are some clean denim jeans that are no longer useful and there is a load of craft ideas you can make from them.
Imagine being able to make money from a pair of jeans you left on your closet floor because they were worn out. Recycling is hot right now, and if you can make things that are useful then they will sell. The less you spend on supplies the more money you keep in your pocket. These are perfect for craft shows and also make great gifts.
What you will Need:
A pair of adult sized clean jeans
the little inner coin pocket on many jeans, (if you can't find one you can use a child's pocket from smaller jeans).
sewing machine with heavier needle for sewing denim (fabric stores and Wal-Mart carry these)
sharp pair of scissors
washer and dryer (for creating fringe)
polyester fiber fill or soft stuffing of your choice
How to Make the Tooth Fairy Denim Pocket Pillow
Step 1 - Open out your pair of clean jeans by cutting up the inner seams.
Step 2 - Measure out two squares of denim 7 inches by 7 inches (this will create a 6 inch pillow with a 1/2 inch seam allowance)
Step 3 - On one square take your little pocket and center it onto the square and then sew with the sewing machine, making sure to leave the top of the pocket open. This is where the tooth will go.
Step 4 - Sew both squares together with "wrong sides together" (good side on outside) allowing 1/2 inch seam. Make sure and leave about a 2 inch opening for stuffing polyester fiber.
Step 5 - With the sharp scissors, cut the extra edges to the seam as if to make fringe, making the cuts 1/4 inch apart or as close as you can if you want the softer fuzzy look.
Step 6 - Throw in the washer and then the dryer and you will have fuzzy seams. Stuff with polyester fiberfill or your stuffing of choice and finish the seam off with hand sewing or if you can get it under the machine that works too.
You can leave it as it or personalize it with fabric paints, beads and more. The little tooth goes in the pocket and the fairy leaves money in the pocket. Check out some other ideas to start a craft business.
