Crocheted Tooth


I have a friend whose Daughter is studying to be a dental Hygienist. I made this tooth for her when I couldn’t find a suitable pattern. I made it in a few hours.

  1. It is so cute! I am thinking of making it and adding a small pocket to the back for a tooth fairy pillow. I have a few years to get it done as my granddaughter only has two teeth right now! LOL!!!
