If you have kids (or know someone who does) then you might want to make crochet tooth fairy pillows. These are great because they can sit by the child's bed, making a special ritual out of each lost tooth and keeping parents from actually having to dig under the sleeping child's head to pay out the treasure. Here are ten crochet patterns to try for this fun project.

Fun fact: August 22nd is National Tooth Fairy Day.

    This adorable crochet pattern by Amanda Lang is a crochet tooth that holds the tooth fairy's money deposit in its mouth. The crochet pattern, which is available for purchase through Ravelry, includes information on how to adapt the pattern to make it look like various characters including superheroes, a cowboy and a ballerina. You could use the same pattern for each of your children but make each one just a bit unique.

    Here is another simple free crochet pattern for a stashbusting tooth pouch. Unlike the one above, this one comes in a tooth shape, which kids sometimes love.
