Pattern Design + Construction
I'm so excited to share this precious Crochet Tooth Fairy Pillow with you! It hangs sweetly on the outside of your child's door awaiting a visit from the Tooth Fairy without disturbing the little one's slumber. I would classify this pattern as beginner level since the most challenging portion is Row 1, followed by a series of rows containing only single crochet!
Each Tooth Fairy Pillow consists of a front and back panel and a little pocket for lost teeth. The pocket is stitched onto the back panel using a tapestry needle. The front and back panels are joined together with a round of single crochet and let's not forget the stuffing! The finished pillow measures approximately 7 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide. You could easily create a larger pillow by using a larger crochet hook with bulkier yarn. The pillow is hung using ribbon, but you could also use yarn or any hanging of your choice!
Be sure to check out the reviews on my Etsy Shop to see all of the adorable variations our crochet community have created! I absolutely love the creativity and thank you for sharing your versions with me!

The Tooth Fairy Pillow, a History...
This pattern is very special to me and close to my heart. I designed this magic tooth in 2017 right as I was first starting to write my own crochet patterns. Not only did it turn out to be a functional and adorable pattern, but it also gained popularity on Pinterest and quickly became my very first Etsy Bestseller. It continues to be my top pattern years later! This experience gave me the confidence to continue my passion for creating new crochet patterns and sharing them with the world! I hope my experience inspires you to follow your dreams as well!
We'll be using medium Worsted Weight (4) Yarn for this crochet Tooth Fairy Pillow pattern. This is my favorite yarn weight to work with for crochet rag dolls and it has a great price point. It's versatile and wears well while also being soft and cozy which is perfect for a stuffed animal or cuddler pattern! You could easily substitute brands of worsted weight yarn as long as the ounces per gram are similar.
For this tutorial, I used the following yarn:
Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color White
Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Black

This is beginning the first ‘root’ on our tooth.
Row 19: DEC, SC in the next 7 stitches, chain 1 (8 stitches)
Rows 20-22: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (8 stitches)
Row 23: DEC, SC in the next 4 stitches, DEC, chain 1 (6 stitches)
Row 24: DEC, SC in the next 2 stitches, DEC, chain 1 (4 stitches)
Row 25: DEC two times, chain 1 (2 stitches)
Tie off with a long enough tail to weave in the end.
Now, with your tooth upside down and the first root on the top left, join on the other side and repeat Rows 17-25 to create the second root.
Weave in the ends and trim any excess yarn.
With white yarn, chain 13
Row 1: SC in each stitch, chain 1 (12 stitches)
Row 2: INC, SC in the next 10 stitches, INC, chain 1 (14 stitches)
Rows 3-9: SC in each stitch, chain1 (14 stitches)
We've just finished Row 9 and our hook is on the top left side of the pocket.
We will keep working down the left side, across the bottom, and up the right side with a round of SC to create a clean border.
At the end of the border (top right corner of the pocket), chain 1 and tie off with a long tail.
Using a tapestry needle and the long tail stitch the pocket onto the back panel of our tooth (make sure to leave the top of the pocket open).
Tooth Fairy Face:
Using black yarn and a tapestry needle, stitch a cute face onto the front panel of our tooth.
To create my faces, I like to make 'semicircles'. My semicircle is essentially a wide capital letter V that isn't too tight so it curves. Then I added a few eyelashes to the eyes.
Line up the front and back panels of our Crochet Tooth Fairy Pillow (make sure the correct sides are facing out).
We're going to join the front and back panels with a round of single crochet. I recommend starting at the top right side (with front facing you).
Let's pause at the bottom of the right root to add our stuffing. Once stuffed, continue single crocheting up the right side until you reach the beginning of the border.
Slip stitch, chain 1, tie off with a long enough tail to weave in the end.
Once the ends are weaved in, trim any excess yarn.
Tooth Fairy Pillow Hanger:
I used baby pink ribbon to hang my first Tooth Fairy Pillow because I made it for my little niece who loves pink. You could easily substitute the ribbon for jute or yarn instead!
