Pajama eaters

A few months ago, I found a pattern online for Pajama monsters. I filed it away in the back of my head and thought - Yes! This will be a gift for the kids in the family.
As Christmas grew closer, the thought of making monsters seemed less appealing to me. But I still thought it was a cute idea.

As I browsed Old Navy's website, I saw some adorable pajamas. (on sale, of course!) And then it struck me - I'll make 'monsters' to match the pajamas! Once the pj's were delivered, I started scribbling some pattern ideas.

I was able to alter the pattern from SewFearless enough to make a Polar Bear pillow and an Owl pillow. And stuffed inside their bellies - the pajamas!

I made these pillows with soft fleece. But I do think next time I should use those soft beads rather than stuffing to fill the pillow to make them even squishier.


  1. Those are so cute! What an awesome gift :) it'd be so fun to take to a slumber party!

  2. Oh my goodness! You did a fanTASTIC job! Look how you rocked changing the zipper mouth?! Good work! I bought the same pattern and transformed it for Christmas presents for my boys. I made mine into a monkey, frog & ninja. Your owl and polar bear are adorable - I LOVE them!! I'm up to my eyeballs right now making PJ eaters for my etsy shop and am working on an owl variation, too.

  3. Those are really cute. Is this a free pattern? Just wondering if you can share if it is. These would be great as the treats for my little guys birthday party.

  4. The idea came from Sew Fearless:

    1. Thanks! I never noticed the link last night lol.

  5. Super adorably cute! I just finished my first pajama eater tonight, and it's stinking cute.
