Toy Whale from Old Jeans

My thriftiness is delighted at reusing and repurposing old material but many are the hours I have spent upcycling only to end up with something which turned out looking like a stray cat used it as a dumpster-bed.

This whale pattern from old jeans (preferably jeans with a bit of stretch) is adorable!  It only took a couple of hours to complete, and I love how it looks.  It also seems to have the kind of durability you want for a children's toy.


Stitched together

Stuff the tail and fins and stitch for detail
