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

Supplies

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

Directions

  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 cut.monster 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 plate.monster pillow1
  3. Cut out the circle.monster pillow5
  4. Cut tabs about 1-1 1/2 inches wide x 4 inches long.monster pillow6
  5. With the fabric scraps glue a silly or scary face onto one side of the fleece.monster pillow3
  6. Let dry.
  7. Tie the top piece of fleece to the bottom by tying the tabs together.monster 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
