I wanted to crochet something for my dentist: enamel? dental floss? gingivitis? I chose the simpler route and made this tooth:
Toothy is made from four small cone shapes that are stitched together, then built up with single crochet stitches:
The dentist office enjoyed the gift, though I hear their younger patients have tried walking away with Toothy. So along with guarding kids from tooth decay, my dentist is now guarding a tooth from kids.
Remember to brush and floss daily!
