you could sew the bottom and top together and stuff them like a cushion

Unless you really want to use them as some sort of apparel, then I would suggest buying a zipper and making them into a little toiletry case. Depending on how much fabric you have (how big the pj's are) you could make different cases, purses, makeup carriers etc.
Or if the Eeyore print is what you like about them, cut out the Eeyores and attach them to something else which you are making.

If the PJs are still comfortable around your middle, you can add fabric to the bottom.  Find a flannel that looks good, maybe a solid color. If you do any sewing, you probably have leftover fabric that will do.  Wash and dry it a couple of times to shrink it.  (The PJs have probably been washed often and have shrunk some.)

Here's how: 
  Cut off the old hem, right above the stitching. 

  Try the PJs on and figure out how much you need to add.

  Cut two pieces. Length is the amount you need to add, plus 2" (for the hem and the seam with the old part).  Make it as wide as the bottom of the pant leg, plus 1 1/4". 

  Sew the side seam.  Hem the bottom.  Add to the PJs.
