Rainbow Fish Costume

 This is the Rainbow Fish costume we made for World Book Day. I am not the best at sewing but this is something even I could do without too much stress. It took one evening to make and was very cheap to make.

What You Will Need To Make Your Rainbow Fish Costume

  • Rainbow coloured felt
  • Shiny silver material
  • Old T-shirt
  • Alice band
  • Sewing kit 

Method: Making You Rainbow Fish Costume

  • Cut the felt into scales.
  • Place the felt into position in lines. Start from the bottom. Sew onto the t-shirt so they overlap.

 My daughter (aged 4) helped with this. 

To make the headband

  • Cut the felt into long strips about 5mm in width.
  • Tie onto an Alice band.
  • Trim the ends so it looks neat. 

The Finished Rainbow Fish Costume

This was a good costume for wearing at school because the back was plain so it was suitable for sitting down. It did last pretty well during the day, although a couple of scales did fall off. Someone with better sewing skills than me would be able to do this better, I’m sure.

 The Rainbow Fish is a really beautiful book suitable for infant aged children. The pictures are stunning and it teaches the lesson of sharing in a sweet accessible way.
