If you have kids (or know someone who does) then you might want to make crochet tooth fairy pillows. These are great because they can sit by the child's bed, making a special ritual out of each lost tooth and keeping parents from actually having to dig under the sleeping child's head to pay out the treasure. Here are 10 crochet patterns to try for this fun project.

Fun fact: August 22nd is National Tooth Fairy Day.
