I have a son who is seven. At this age, the Tooth Fairy is visiting our home pretty often. And, of course, I had to make a Crochet Tooth!
On my website, you can find a lot of heart-shaped appliques, and this crochet Tooth pattern is not an exception – its design is also based on the pattern for the heart.

With this crochet Tooth Applique, you can embellish a Tooth Fairy Pillow, as well as a Tooth Fairy Pouch or Bag. Or, you can sew this Tooth Applique on your child’s clothes or embellish whatever you would like!
After publishing this Tooth Applique crochet pattern, I was asked to design a small crochet Tooth Fairy Pouch. The pouch is made from two Tooth appliques, it is cute and perfect for a lost tooth!
