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.

Tamara of Moogly created this free crochet pattern for National Tooth Fairy Day in 2014. It is a cute little upside-down tooth pocket with a smiling face that's placed on top of a cozy pillow, designed to be unisex to work for any girl or boy. Coins or dollars fit easily in the pocket.

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.

Stuffed Tooth Crochet Pattern
This crochet tooth also has a face on it with a mouth that holds the money. However, it's made in a large size so it doubles as a kid's friendly stuffed toy. The pattern is sold on Etsy by Crochet It Baby!

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. However, it doesn't have a button or closure so there's a small risk of teeth / coins falling out. This free crochet pattern is from Angels Crochet.

Great choice for light sleepers who might want to try to see if the tooth fairy is real!Continue to 9 of 10 below.
