Here’s the second project from my jean challenge.  I made this teddy for my mother-in-law for her birthday.  It is made from an old western shirt that has lots of sentimental value to her and a pair of her lightweight denim pants.  She was thrilled with her present and remembered giving me the shirt a long time ago.

I used a commercial pattern to make this bear.  It was fairly easy to make and I am thinking of a way to make recycled stuffing for future projects like this.    I have plans to make several more since it was an easy, fun project and makes a great gift.  These would be really cute with lace collars, or other fun embellishments.
