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.
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.
