Jeans for Ken

Blue jeans ken

This the second pants I’m sewing for Ken. It is all sewed by hand. I enjoy sewing for Ken. I think the next outfit will be a less casual outfit, like a tuxedo. For this specific pants, I advise you check the length of the legs because I know all Ken dolls are different.
Happy sewing!

Material:
-    2 rectangles of jeans: 7 ½” x 3 ¾” ( 19cm x 10cm)
-    Back pockets: 2 small rectangles: 1 ¼” x 1” (3cm x 2.5cm)

      Thanks Lyndsey! I’m glad to be back and hoppefully I’ll have more time to sew now. I like this blue jeans, it took me a little time to sew the decoration so it will look like a real one, and I am very happy with the result.

      Actually I did one! I tried for myself before puting online and it was quite good. I used the same way as for doing the leggings for Barbie, sewing the fabric on Ken.
      If I do another one I promise to put it online.

    hey i love your tutorial. i am trying to make some jeans for a 9″ stop motion character and i am struggling to find the right material. i have tried using jeans denim and jeggings. what material do you use to make your ken jeans? i keep finding the materials i use fray a lot, do you find that same problem? is it a case of sewing deeper into the denim?

      I have been very lucky for jeans. I use my daughter used jeans. Kid’s jeans fabric is much more thin and stretchy than adult jeans, so easier to sew.
      As for other ken’s pants, I found light fabrics at the store fabric next to my place.
