Making a Denim Whale Toy from Old Jeans

A while back I saw this great tutorial on a Finnish blog for upcycling an old pair of denim jeans into a stuffed whale toy. Then later another blog put up a printable pattern for the whale.

I had some old jeans of mine that were getting too worn to wear, so I made them into a whale for my son. (This project is actually a few months old, but I’ve had so many other sewing projects to blog about this one was overlooked).IMG_5624IMG_5630

The top of the whale uses the outside of the jeans, while the belly uses the inside for contrast.IMG_5628

It was a fun and easy project and we’ve nicknamed the whale Mr. Pants.IMG_5626

I made him after my son had gone to bed and put the whale on my son’s chair as a surprise for the next morning.IMG_5631
