This DIY felt shark is a great beginner sewing project. It’s easy and inexpensive to make! Once your kids learn how to make this felt creature, they can then branch out into other shapes as well.
Simply draw your own shape to make the template for your craft project or search for templates online. You can even use simply coloring book images as your pattern.
