20+ shark sewing patterns & tutorials! My kids are currently in a shark phase as we visit the beach, and I thought it was a good time to finish up this fun list of shark things to sew, ranging from clothes to quilts to stuffed animals.
My eldest is irritated that sharks are always the villain in movies and books so he has especially been looking for sweet, beautiful shark examples in the world. So many of these look like they’re ready to snuggle; I hope you find the perfect project for the shark lovers in your life!
If you don’t fall in love with any of these super shark projects, consider this sweet fabric line with shark designs that could be used to make anything you wanted!
