Sewing gifts for kids: Pajama Eaters

I prefer to make gifts for my kids for Christmas. I usually make pajamas, clothes and a toy. Last year I made each of my kids a Pajama Eater to go with their new pajamas. I used the pattern by Sew Fearless and loved it. I didn’t make any of them exactly like the pattern. I should have because my “cat” doesn’t look too cat-tish because I ran out of time and didn’t put on the ears or whiskers.

Pajama Eaters make the perfect git for a childI made 4. Here are the 3 I could actually find when it came time for photos. It’s not that the 4th is unloved and tossed aside. I think it was actually in the cardboard fort in my 7 year old’s room but I didn’t go inside it.

I made a Glam Monster, Monkey and Cat. See what I mean about the cat? The fourth is a penguin. Super cute. Trust me on that one.

I used a thin pillow form to stuff 3 of them. The pattern calls for stuffing. The pillow form makes it easier. Just don’t get a super over stuffed form because it will be hard to get the pajamas into the monster.

You can get the Pajama Eater pattern here at Sew Fearless.

Do you like to give handmade gifts?

Some other fun gifts to sew: stuffed animals (I love the monkey and the dragon!), pajamas, backpack, car play mat, felt play food, canopy tent or a quilt.
