We Are Friendly Monsters Pj Shirt

I finished it!  Here is the whole set:

And a close up of the monster applique:

I used the monster called "Bat Monster" as my inspiration for the applique.  You can see him in the left hand corner, right under the bottom edge of the shirt. 

I'm really having a good time with appliques!  I had never done any before doing the Pirate Shirt a few days ago.  They aren't nearly as scary or difficult to sew on as I had thought they were!  In fact, I wouldn't say they're scary at all!  Now I have all kinds of ideas for appliques.  If you've never tried it, you should.  Great, FUN results. :)

Can wait to see if S likes the result!  Christmas is in 11 days...

  1. HAHAHAHAHA those jammies are CUTE! I saw your link @ Trendy Treehouse so I came for a peek - I sure do wish "the internet" had been around when my boys were little - I could have gotten a zillion great ideas for them - like these jams! I wonder if 21 and 20+grumpy are too old for these ;)

  2. I bought the same flannel - both the pirate and the monsters and a bunch more! I have already made the pants...but now I totally need a monster shirt to go with it!!!

    Love it!


  3. I have a little guy that would just love this!!!
    You should come link this up to my Sew Fabulous Friday Link Party! It would make a great addition.

  4. So adorable. My sons would flip over this. I'd have to wash them everyday so they could wear them over and over again. I'm now following.


  5. Had to see this one too! Simply adorable! I'd wear a pair of those!

  6. BTW, where do you find those cute fabrics?

  7. Jenn, Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm glad you like my projects. :) I actually got both of these (monster and pirate) fabrics at joann's. It can be hard to find cute boy fabric. I am ALWAYS on the look out for it. Pretty much any time I go to joann's (which may or may not be 2-3 times a week) I do a "drive by" of the flannels. If I see something I like, I buy a yard or two whether it's on sale or not because chances are if you wait even a day, it WILL be gone. This last week I found a REALLY cute robot one. Good luck and happy 'hunting'!!

  8. My little boy loves monsters! And this is so cute! Thanks for the ideas!
