Friendly Monster Pillow (pattern pieces included)

Good news.  I sewed up another project for We All Sew (by Bernina) a while ago, and the tutorial and pattern pieces are now available.  Yay.



In case you have missed them, here are a few other projects that I have created for We All Sew.

But the newest project is a fun little Monster Pillow.  It’s fleece and cuddly and charming…….and easy for little arms to carry around anywhere.




The pattern over at We All Sew, found here, is complete with lots of pictures and pattern pieces.  No worries.





This Monster Pillow pattern is pretty darn easy……so why not make 3?  Or 5?  You know every little boy/girl you know would love one.  Especially to cuddle at night to ward off any of those scary made-up monsters under the bed.





Hope you love it as much as I loved making it.


Monster Pillow tutorial and pattern pieces found here.



And ummmm, hello……it’s Friday!  Enjoy your weekend!! :)

    You can even make a pocket out of the “lower jaw” of the monster where your little one can keep tissues and stuff like that. :)

    It’s so cute!

  5. Kate says:

    I have recently started following your blog and I am in love!! Thank you so much for the monster pillow pattern. A friend’s little girl is turning 1 next month and I think it will be a great unique gift.

    Ok first off that is the CUTEST pillow I’ve ever seen! I’m about to pin that on my board right this second! Thanks for the pattern!

    Secondly, THANKS for commenting on my blog! I feel like a celebrity has visited me causey you are DA BOMB, and I’ve come to your site so many times for my new craft addiction!

    Third, thanks for the jogging stroller tips! I’m starting to second guess this again… for the 100th time.

    1. Baby Making Mama says:

      Woops! Ok now I feel like a big fat dork cause I realized it was someone else who commented on my blog and I clicked on your link thinking it was their blog but it was a blog they follow… like everyone else. haha! Ok. Disergard Points 2 and 3. hehe.

    2. Ashley says:

      Haha……no worries at all! But I totally linked over to your site and ugggggh, the great stroller debate. I have been there too. And hope you find a friend who needs you to use it for a while. That would be awesome. And cheaper.

      Your family is beautiful and your daughter…….oh my, she is a gorgeous little thing. :)

    Hey there! I love this pillow. I think he’s adorable. The first thing I though of was that you could make his belly a pocket and it would be the perfect tooth fairy pillow. So cute!

  10. Annie says:

    Cute!! It would be fun to make the mouth a zipper and make it a pajama-eater pillow.

  11. Heather says:

    Totally want to make it and definitely love it!! Thank you for ALL the wonderful things you share!

  12. Julie Snow says:

    I cannot get the instructions and pattern to download on the Bernina site??!!!

  13. Wendy says:

    THis is so cute! It reminds me of those critter pillows that we used to make when we first started sewing. All the pattern companies carried them and they were super easy to cut out and sew. I made an elephant, I think. :)

  14. Jessica says:

    Holy cow! That has got to be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! And I LOVE how simple it is to make! Not to mention that has got to be the best and most informative tutorial I’ve ever seen. I usually get so lost trying to make sense of the steps, but that definitely wasn’t the case here! I can’t wait to make this :)

  15. Katie says:

    This is the cutest thing!!! I have a little 9 month old boy that is just starting to get excited over stuff and I think he would LOVE this!!! I will probably make this and post it to my blog!!! ( I’l be sure to link your tutorial for it and give you full credit!! ) Thanks for the idea!! Love it!!

    i clicked on what i think is the passy holder, and it just took me to the picture….

  17. Natalie says:

    This is super cute! I just may have to drop everything and make a monster pillow today. Thanks!

  18. Beth says:

    Super cute! I have 3 sons and 8 nephews…I make all things monster for them (shirts, bags, pillows). They would all love this! Would also make a great tooth fairy pillow by making his bottom lip a pocket. Thanks for sharing! Smiles~Beth

  19. Amy M. says:

    Too cute! I might just have to get some fleece scraps and remnant pieces and make one of these for my little girl.

  20. Sabrina @ Customized Creations says:

    This is too cute! I love it!

  21. Leigh Ann says:

    Too cute! I’ll bet you could make this out of up cycled t-shirts.
