Step 1.

You need a rectangle piece of denim to make the shark body.  To start, cut two of the corners off. Like this.

Bring the long edges toward the center line…

… and draw a curve, like this. This will be the mouth.

Cut it out and unfold.



IMG_6859



Sew the two edges together…

… like this, until you almost reach the end. The shark will have the stitch on his belly.

Step 2.

Take the piece of leather…

Cut them out.

Step 3.

It is time to add some teeth to our shark. Flatten the body with the stitch on the middle, like this.

Now is time to assemble all the pieces. Turn it inside out.

This is the other end, where we will attach the tail.

Apply a layer of glue on the start of the tail…



IMG_6875



and put it in place. Keep it there a bit until it is glued (take care not to glue your fingers).



IMG_6876



Then take a lateral fin…



IMG_6877



… put some glue on the starting edge…



IMG_6878



… and fix it on the shark body.



IMG_6879



Do the same with the other one…



IMG_6880



… and with the central fin.



IMG_6881



Like this. Our shark looks good but… it is blind!!!

Step 5.

Let’s make the eyes!  Use some white paint to make two white circles.



IMG_6884



Like this.



IMG_6885



Then some black to complete the eyes.



IMG_6886



Let it dry well…



IMG_6887



… then you can put some pencils in it 😉
