Shark!

I gotta be honest,  I'm pretty proud of this one.  Silas is modeling my nephew's Christmas present.   My nephew is super into sharks.  I saw something similar for adults online and loved the idea.  I already had the fabric so I gave it a go.  This was really fun to make and I am happy with the result.  I considered adding red rick rack on the teeth for blood but figured a red lining was morbid enough for a 4 year old.

I cut the gills out of black felt.  Using iron on hem tape to hold them in place made it much easier to zig zag around them.

The eyes are felt as well.

Silas modeling.  He is surprisingly unintimidated by sharks.
