FREE Pattern: Tooth Tooth Fairy Pillow

Aren't I a charming fellow?

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now, festering and poking me (like the good ones do), that I wanted to make a tooth-shaped tooth fairy pillow for my son, who is rapidly approaching the goofy-missing-tooth-grin phase of childhood.  Searched the ‘net high and low for a cute, free pattern, and found exactly SQUAT.  BUMPKUS.  NADA.  So…  I made my own, and you can too!

Body

Start with a magic circle

Round 1:  6 sc in magic circle, pull loop closed and ss to first sc

R 2:  ch 1, 2 sc in each sc, ss to 1st sc

R 3:  ch 1, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * 3 times, ss to 1st sc

R 4:  ch 1, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 2 st*, repeat from * to * 3 times, ss to 1st sc

R 5:  ch 1, *1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, hdc in the next st, 3 dc in the next st, hdc in the next st*, repeat from * to * 3 times, ss to 1st sc

R 6:  ch 1, sc in each st, ss to 1st sc

R 7:  ch 1, bklpsc in each sc, ss to 1st bklpsc

R 8:  ch 1, bklpsc in each bklpsc, ss to 1st bklpsc

R 9-14:  ch 1, sc in each st, ss to 1st sc

R 15-19:  ch 1, sc in each st, decreasing (sc2tog) at each established corner (from round 5) on each round, ss to 1st sc, do not finish off

Forming the Roots:

R 1:  ch 1, sc in each sc until you have reached the center (between corners) of one of the sides, ch 4, sc in the center st directly opposite your last sc, and sc in each st around to the 1st sc, ss to 1st sc (beginning of one root)

R 2:  ch 1, sc in each st and each ch to 1st sc, ss to join

R 3-5:  ch 1, sc in each sc, decreasing (sc2tog) in the outer center st each round, ss to 1st sc

R 6-8:  ch 1, sc in each sc, decreasing (sc2tog) in both the outer center and inner center st, ss to 1st sc

finish off, weaving the end of the yarn through each st of the last round and pulling tight to close, weave in end securely

embroider eyes (or use safety eyes), then stuff FIRMLY

Root #2:

R 1:  attach yarn to the center of the ch 4 from the 1st root (between sc), ch 1, sc in each sc and between the sc of the ch 4, ss to first sc

R 2-8: use steps 2-8 of the first root, stuffing as you go

Arms (make 2):

ch 8, sc in each ch, in the last ch (ch 2, 3 dc, ss in sc, 1 dc, ch 2), turn and ss in each sc back to the 1st sc

finish off, using one tail to sew arm to the body and leaving the tail from the hand alone
Heart Pocket (make 2):
R 1:  start with a magic circle, ch 1, sc, hdc, dc, hdc, 2 sc, ch 1, 2sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc, ss in circle, pull tight to close circle

R 2:  ss in 1st sc, sc, hdc, 2 dc each in next 2 st, 1 dc in each next 4 st, ch1, 1 dc in each next 4 st, 2 dc each in next 2 st, hdc, sc, ss in last sc

R 3:  ss in 1st 2 st, sc in next st, 2 hdc each in next 2 st, hdc in next 3 st, dc in next 2 st, (dc, trc) in next st, (trc, dc) in next st, dc in next 2 st, hdc in next 3 st, 2 hdc each in next 2 st, sc in next st, ss in last 2 st, finish off and use the tail(s) to sew the two hearts together, leaving the top open

use the remaining arm tails to sew the heart in his hands, weave in ends

Hanging Loop (optional):

ch 40 (or however long you’d like the loop), sc in each ch, finish off and use tails to sew securely to the top of the head

weave in ends, sew any little darts (to make the tooth have a lumpy top. like a real molar) if you’d like, and enjoy 🙂

 

*Words of warning:  I wrote this up while my soon-to-be-toothless kiddo was talking my ear off.  It may have mistakes…  you can yell at me in the comments and I’ll cower in the bathroom, trying desperately to figure out what’s wrong and get some alone time.  Also, if you happen to make these to sell, Cthulhu will punish you severely for not crediting me with my – uhhh – due credit?  (Just mention on your price tags or something that it is made from my original pattern.)
