Pattern Description:

These cuddly monsters have quite the appetite for clean-but-not-squeeky pajamas. Their zippered mouth opens up to hold pajamas until they are needed again.

This is an excellent beginner's project, great for gaining experience with inserting a zipper and sewing a curved edge. The directions are laid out in the unique Sew Fearless comic book style with full color photographs of every step.

Included in the PDF are full-sized printable patterns for all non-rectangular pieces. Tips for how to print a PDF pattern can be found at:

Excellent Fun Pattern  February 3, 2013

This was the first patter I bought and my first ever zipper project! It was a super fun, cute, and quick beginners project that I LOVED making. I finished one in a day (in between taking care of dogs, house, 15-month old son, and husband) and I'm sure I could do it even quicker if I didn't have all the distractions.

Excellent Great pattern!  January 10, 2013

I have to now make another one for my other daughter.

Excellent Success almost guaranteed  May 27, 2012

Once you stop enjoying reading the pattern - which is set out delightfully - turning out a perfect item is so very easy if you have some sewing experience.

If you don't, this will certainly help you get on your way.

A lot of fun to make, and it is easy to see this designer - Sew Fearless - had a lot of fun and enjoyed making this pattern.
