Shark Toofs + Roscoe

April 12th

My friend Meg asked if I could sew her eldest son, Roscoe, a tooth fairy pillow. Specifically, he wanted a shark pillow.


He loves everything shark, and can tell you in great detail the differences between say, a Great White and a Wobbegong. Hint: Wobbegong are his favorite. If you ask him about these, get comfortable and have a tall glass of wine in hand. You’re going to be equally amused and stuck.

Of course I could sew him a shark tooth fairy pillow. I mean, I’d sewn zero prior, but how hard could this be? Come to find out it was not difficult. The trickiest aspect was finding a box big enough to mail the sucker.

(Consider size in the future, Donley. Teeth are tiny.)

When searching for a photo of Roscoe for this post, I realize how many photos I have of him over the last five years. He and his brother are adorable hams.

God, I love that kid. Really, I love that entire family. The Brennans are my family, too.
Anyway — shark pillow:

Happy teeth loss, Roscoe! Hope this guy makes it all a bit easier, buddy.

  1. Love. And I understand that love completely.

  2. Hmm… maybe next time you should send it unstuffed with stuffing instructions? Very cool shark – I bet Roscoe loves it!

      Yeah, Sarah. That is what his mama said too, after I’d called her from the post office to complain about mailing a shark. Duh!

  3. So very cute…you did a great job and what a cool shark indeed!

  4. Totally awesome sauce, Kelli! So clever, AmazinGirl!

  5. super awesome pillow! you did a great job!

  6. Gorgeous! Roscoe and the shark!

  7. How fun is that? I bet he flipped his little lid, and now the Tooth Fairy doesn’t need to dig around to find the pillow. Win win (you know, if we’re not talking about the one ponying up for shipping….)

  8. Great job on the shark pillow, Kelli. What boy wouldn’t love that?

  9. That pillow is sooooo cute! And I love the title of the post — Shark Toofs. LOL.

  10. I bet Roscoe must be thilled! And you did a great job. My God how much has he grown???

  11. Ops, I forgot…how much longer would you stay there? I mean, can I send you something or will it be lost for the 3rd time?

  12. Adorable! Really Adorable! Great pattern, and believe me, the tooth fairy will appreciate that it is big and easy to find!
