My oldest son wanted to be a shark for Halloween last year, so I set to work creating a shark costume. The results are the Shark Bait pattern you see here. With this pattern, you can make a fun, sturdy strap-on tail, plus add gums and teeth to a hoodie. The best part is the removable back fin that let's your little mako wear this hoodie everywhere, even after the costume party is over! My son still LOVES his hoodie and wears it to first grade every day.
