(Do sharks rawr??)
I finally found a grey hoodie to make this possible. A shark hoodie has been on my mind for months! (Boy version of this?)

–a grey hoodie
–sturdy white felt
Shark Hoodie Instructions
This project is pretty simple. Start with a grey hoodie.
1. Cut out a bunch of triangles from felt to make teeth. The size you make them will probably depend on the size of your hoodie. Mine are about 1″ on the long edge. Don’t worry if they aren’t all exactly the same size or perfect shape. Shark teeth are supposed to be jagged.
2. Pin them on. And sew them on. Or just forget pinning and feed them one by one onto your hoodie as you feed it through the machine.
You could add eyes, but I didn’t want it to look too gimicky. I liked the subtle shark look. Plus the hoodie naturally points at the top making a cute little “fin”.
Make a Baby Shark Costume from scratch in this post! Doo Doo Doo, it has a tail and a fin, too! And a DIY Mermaid Tail is great for a group costume!
P.S. Celebrate the BOY starts today (at Made by Rae and MADE)! And I am participating tomorrow! Yay for boys!

Where did you find a plain gray hoodie if you don’t mind me asking? Kelly
I got it on ebay of all places! I looked EVERYWHERE and couldn’t find one so ebay it was!
I am making this for my boys!!! So cute!!!!!
adorable, my son would love one of these and possibly his dad too!
How clever are you! I think my five year old would love a hoodie like this too.

Lol, so cute!
Hi Kate! I’m visiting from vintage wanna bee. I loooove this shark hoodie. It turned out so cute. :)
This is going to be Bug’s halloween costume this year! I love it!!
I AM SO MAKING ONE FOR MY BROTHER! He is OBSESSED with sharks. Thanks so much for the great idea!
Love this!! I’m going to make it for my nephew with a teal sweatshirt for the San Jose Sharks :-)
Fantastic! Do the felt teeth survive the washer/dryer? Thanks!
This is so cute. I am so pleased to have found your blog. I am fairly new to sewing and have 2 little boys so I think I’ll be back here a lot.
Lynette @ My Craft Discovery
oh I love this so much! I can’t wait for my little guy to get here so I can make him one of these!
This is great. Maybe for stability use sewable fusing product with two layers of felt to hold up good in wash. Also what would it look like to add a fin to back of hood?
Adorable! And the hoodie is pretty cute too!
Plan on finding a green or bold color and making a monster hoodie for the boys to wear to monster’s inc thanks for the great idea!!
