Bind off and then make a second tooth. Sew kawaii smiley face to RS of one tooth. Stack the teeth pieces, wrong sides together, and whip stitch or blanket stitch around the edges. When the gap is about 1 inch, fill the tooth with toy stuffing before you finish sewing the edges together.

The Kawaii Tooth is worked sideways so, if you want to use multiple colours or self-striping yarn, any stripes will run vertically. This tooth is perfect for Tooth Fairy gifts; an ideal time-filler and stash-buster, while you wait for your child to fall asleep!
