Crochet tooth shaped tooth holder pattern – Perfect for keeping a tooth safe ready for the tooth fairies visit, much easier for her to find where it is too! 

 

What better for keeping a tooth safe and ready for collection by the tooth fairy than a little pocket on the back of this crochet tooth! I have been wanting to make a tooth holder for a while but couldn’t quite decide on what to make, that was until I thought of putting into a tooth. Perfect I thought a tooth within a tooth! This also keeps the tooth safe – nothing worse than loosing the tooth so it cannot get collected meaning no pennies! This also keeps the pennies safe in place for in the morning ready for spending!
I had a few different ideas on how to do his tooth and whether to make a pocket within the tooth itself or put one on the back of the tooth, and after quite a bit (in fact a lot!) of going back and forth between the two ideas I decided to put a separate pocket on the back.
I was also unsure whether to put a face on or not, so I decided to put one on to see how it would look if it didn’t look right I could unpick it. Thankfully as I hate unpicking I think the face really adds to the tooth and it makes me smile when I look at it so hopefully it will encourage some cheeky newly toothless grins too!
It’s really simple to make and only uses dc stitches.  You could also change the colour if you wanted or change the facial expression, or not put a face on at all.  The pocket could be made in a different coloured colour too if you want it to stand out a bit more  – so many different options to choose from!
