My nieces birthday is near Halloween, so for the last several years I have made her Halloween costume as a gift for her. This year my sister in law had another idea. My niece was going to get a hand me down costume from another cousin so… Could I help with the monster themed birthday party craft? My sister in law had noticed a monster no sew pillows kit and was wondering if we could figure them out. Sure I said! I am always looking for an excuse to go to the fabric store.

This is what we came up with:

Monster Pillows: No Sew


  • 3/4 yard of fleece
  • fabric / fleece scraps
  • fabric glue
  • scissors
  • stuffing
  • chalk


  1. I measured out 4 inches on a piece of note book paper. Cut it to be a consistent measure of the circle I was about to pillow7
  2. With the fleece still folded, place a dinner plate face down on top of the fabric. Using the 4 inch marker mark a circle 4 inches from the pillow1
  3. Cut out the pillow5
  4. Cut tabs about 1-1 1/2 inches wide x 4 inches pillow6
  5. With the fabric scraps glue a silly or scary face onto one side of the pillow3
  6. Let dry.
  7. Tie the top piece of fleece to the bottom by tying the tabs pillow2monster pillow8
  8. I made a circular pillow with the sewing machine to make it one less step for the birthday party. To truly no sew – before the last couple of tabs are tied simple fill the center with stuffing.

I also made these instructions  for the six 10 year olds at the party.  MONSTER PILLOWS

Here is a helpful YouTube video to figure out the best tying method for you.
