My new friend

I haven't been able to pick a name for him yet though! Any idea?

He is made from half of a leg of an old pair of jeans and some samples fabric an aunt gave me. He is stuffed with scrap wadding and has a few bits of felt. I have loads of old pairs of jeans saved, I have a tendency to wear them out at the inner thigh (the joys of being a bit wobbly) and have decided I need to upcycle them into something.

I got the pattern from a toy making book, but I haven't got it to hand and can't remember the title, sorry.

I hadn't sewn denim before, it was easier than I thought. I have ideas for bags etc at somepoint. So much to make, so little time!

It took me 9 months to decide what to name my own daughter so I can't help with your friend's name but he sure is gorgeous.
