HI! I took a pair of nice brown corduroy jeans that were no longer wanted and made 1) a teddy bear and 2) a jean skirt. Very little waste.
The bear was made with a McCalls Craft pattern, M6188 and the skirt, after examining several sites, was made of my own volition.
I embroidered the eyes, nose and mouth on the bear in case a youngster played with him. Click the pictures in the gallery for a full view.
