It’s the week we all love to hate. SHARK WEEK! Has everyone else been avoiding their TV this week? I mean, REALLY, who watches this stuff? Most of us will be gracing the sandy beaches this summer and I know I don’t need any additional reason to be certain a shark is going to come up and gobble me up.
Supplies Needed- DIY Shark Hoodie Costume:
- Solid Gray Hoodie Sweatshirt – I went with one a couple sizes bigger to make it more of a cover up and something he can use a couple years (this one is 5T).
- White Felt
- Gray Thread
Directions to Make the DIY Shark Hoodie Costume:
Now the comes the fun part- the teeth and fin. To make these, I used regular felt that was on hand. (thankfully my mother is a lover of fabric so I crashed her stash- like mother/like daughter) For the teeth, I first started to cut each tooth out in small triangles- but then realized it would be much easier to have an entire row as one piece.
For the fin, I did the same sort of thing. Just traced out the fin shape onto the gray felt and sewed it onto the back of the sweatshirt.
I won’t be running from this little shark anytime soon!
So, tell me the truth- are you a Shark Week fan? Or do you just prefer adorable shark crafts instead? This DIY Shark Hoodie Costume has been such a fun thing to have!
