My first challenge entry ever:
From one pair of jeans.
Here she is my grown up gal PJ pal:

The front pocket is just the right size to hold a condom.
I Frankenstien'd a teddy bear pattern - sharpened the nose, made the arms smaller, the feet bigger, the tummy fatter and added a kangaroo tail.
The eyes are child proof, but the nose is not.
I just so happened to have denim colored yarn so she also got a scarf.
In the back, where you leave it unsewn to add stuffing I also added a small zippered pocket with the jean zipper and the pocket lining:

The pocket is small, but all a gal really needs can fit in there - toothbrush, pair of undies.....
Hope you like her.

Thanks, I'm really fond of her, but she is going to be an xmas present for my niece (minus the condom of course).
She does need a name, any suggestions?

This was a great project--pretty and functional, and quite cunning.  I'm impressed.

Pieces,

hee hee. or craftsterinaroo
Her unofficial name is currently Undieroo, but I'll let my niece name her at xmas, even though she'll more than likely name her Invisagirl, since all her toys are Invisagirl currently.
