Item details

This is a sewing pattern PDF for a lined shark hand puppet. Step-by-step instructions with full colour photos are included with the download.

The finished measurements of the puppet are L10.5" x W4.5", which isn't very big. It's meant to fit the hands of a child or small-handed adult (I have small adult hands and it fits me just fine). If you have large adult hands, you might want to adjust the printer settings on your computer so that the pattern prints out at a size larger than 100%.

Materials needed:

*Less than 1/4yd grey felt for the outer body** (see note below)

*Scrap of pink felt for the mouth

*Scrap of white felt for the teeth (I didn't have white felt, so I used yellow, you can do what you like!)

*Less than 1/4yd woven cotton fabric for lining, such as quilting cotton

*Black buttons for eyes


**Note: Make sure that it’s fabric felt that you use for this project, bought by-the-yard from the fabric store. Craft felt (felt sheets from craft sections like at Michael’s, Dollarama or Walmart) is way too flimsy. If you use craft felt, you WILL poke a thumb through it.

The only issue with fabric felt is that while you just need the tiniest amount of grey, pink and white for this project, fabric stores usually have a minimum yardage that they will sell you (1/4yd being the smallest amount that I've ever seen, and sometimes the minimum amount is 1/2yd) so you’ll be stuck with a bunch of leftover pink and white felt fabrics.

A 1/4" seam allowance is included but not marked on this pattern.

Skill Level: Intermediate

*follow a sewing pattern
