Pattern Design + Construction

This Yellow Guy Crochet Tooth Fairy Pillow is a variation of my original Tooth Fairy Pillow design. It hangs 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! There are a few color changes throughout, but this project whips up quickly.

Each Tooth Fairy Pillow consists of a front and back panel, the eye and a little pocket for lost teeth. The pocket and eye are stitched onto the front and back panels 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 yarn, but you could also use ribbon or any hanging of your choice!

Yarn:

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

  • Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Royal

  • Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Bright Yellow

  • Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Grey Heather

  • 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).

Mouth:

Using your tapestry needle and black yarn, stitch a cute little mouth under the eye offset to the right.





Assembly:

Line up the front and back panels of our 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 using the corresponding colors. I recommend starting at the top right side with yellow

(with the 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.


Hanger:

I used black yarn to hang my Yellow Guy Tooth Fairy Pillow. You could easily substitute the yarn for jute or ribbon instead!
