Step 8: Viola!
There will be a small pile of scraps left, the piece between the yoke and the waist band, and the small scraps around the back pockets can be set aside for patching and repairs. Anything too small for that should be saved in a scrap bin for stuffing. (denim pillows stuffed with scraps are dense and great for sitting on the floor) the only real waste are the rivets, which have little practical use. I still set them aside, because i am obsessed with using all the parts of an item. Maybe I'll use them to make an abstract art-deco collage one day. In the mean time I cut them out and keep them in a peanut jar.
