No-Sew Shark Costume

Creativity kits for kids!

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!

Little man has loved sharks since we first visited the Indianapolis Zoo…the shark tank is his FAVORITE place to visit! So, that was an easy decision.
I love the fact that with this costume, he will be able to stay warm for the chilly Indiana Halloween. Another plus? This cost me approximately $10! Can’t go wrong with that!

  8. 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!

  18. 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!

  21. Very cute! I think he can wear the sweatshirt all year long too. I see batman sweatshirts everywhere, so why not a cute shark?

  23. 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! :)

  24. OMG, that is just adorable and the little boy just makes the pictures! :) Featuring you this week at Show Stopper Saturdays!
