No-Sew Shark Costume

I have been trying to plan for little man’s Halloween costume for quite some time now. There are just SO many adorable ideas on Pinterest! With my sewing machine broken, I have been going back-and-forth with myself on whether or not I should just purchase a costume this year. But, I just couldn’t bring myself to pay so much money for a cheap costume. So I decided to make an affordable no-sew costume!

    Darn! Wish I would have seen this before. I got the shark costume from Old Navy, but my son is unhappy with the feet on it and how the belly has extra padding. Your costume wouldn’t have had those problems AND it would have been cheaper!

      That is AWESOME! I just can’t wait for little man to actually be able to reach the sharks on his own…he’s not quite tall enough yet!

    OHHHHHHHHH my gosh this is way too cute! I want one for myself :) I can’t even tell you how much I love this. I’m SO featuring this next week! In addition to party features, I’m going to do another post for Halloween costume features from the party. And this one must be added to it! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks so much for sharing at Throwback Thursday :)

    This is such a wonderful project. I too have a shark-obsessed little guy, and not only will this make a great costume for a party we’re going to, but he can wear it all the time (until it no longer fits and I have to make another!)

    Thank you so much for this!! My kiddo is in a school program about sea critters and she wants to be a shark. This mommy has zero crafting skills & I was freaking out about how to do it! This looks so simple to do and so cute!! Again, thank you!

    I don’t have a sewing machine, so I’m looking forward to following your instructions and adapting it for my daughter’s Yoshi costume this year (i.e. will invert the shark fin and put it at the bottom of the shirt for a tail). Thank you so much – your costume and pictures are awesome! :)

    Thanks for this. I just made this costume for my nearly 7 year old son and he loves it. Cost for materials was ~£15 and it took me around 2.5 hours to make the costume. This is without relevant previous experience.
