Felt Shark Hoodie

Right about now, I can hear nothing but the “Duuuuh, duh, duuuuh, duh, duuuh,duh” from the movie Jaws as I get ready to introduce the scariest, sharpest toothed, shark out there….or maybe not quite! I am pretty afraid of sharks and those sharp teeth…but, today I am anything but afraid of this little shark. Kaeleen is sharing her little guy with us and a most adorable and friendly shark! With just a plain hoodie and some fun felt, she has transformed this light weight jacket into the cutest shark I have ever seen! Enjoy…”duuuuh, duh, duuuuh, duh….” Hehehe!

Measure the inside of the hood. Mine is a 6-9 month size and it was 20 inches.

I cut out a triangle as a template – you can see my template at the far left of the picture.

Cut out teeth (triangle) but do not cut all the way through, so it’s one continuous strand of teeth.

Pin the strand of teeth to the inside of the hood.

For the belly of the shark, you will measure about ¾ of the way up the hoodie front. Mine was about 7 inches.

Fold a piece of grey felt over about 3-4 inches. Measure 7 inches (up and down) from the 7 inch point, draw your belly. (shape shown)

Cut out belly shape, then cut on fold so you have half for each side of the hoodie zipper.

Pin belly on hoodie. **Be sure to unzip it and only sew through the front piece!**

For the shark fin, fold (at bottom) a piece of grey felt. I free handed my fin. Then cut out fin and unfold.

Pin fin on the mid back of the hoodie. Try to line up the fold crease with the vertical center of the hoodie.

Sew down the center/fold crease. **Be sure you’re only sewing through the back of the hoodie and also, make sure it’s unzipped!**

Fold along your sew line and pin.

Top stitch your fin. **When top stitching be sure the fin is not on the hoodie, you want it to stand up off the hoodie.**
