|Flounder costume with Ariel, both homemade|
All you need is a yellow t-shirt, (American Apparel makes the perfect Flounder yellow), some blue fabric, newspaper for stuffing and a sewing machine. If you don't have a sewing machine, you can hand sew this. Yep, it's that simple.
Step 1: Cut 6 rectangle strips of fabric and sew three on each side.
Step 2: For the fin, trace a semi circle on the fabric and cut out two pieces
Step 3: Sew the two pieces of fabric together, leaving a bit of room for the stuffing
Step 4: Stuff the fin with pieces of newspaper and sew out the remainder of the fin
Step 5: This part is a bit tricky. With the t-shirt on a flat surface, position the fin on top of the t-shirt and sew the edges of the fin onto the t-shirt
Step 6: Cut two pieces of blue fabric in a triangular shape
Step 7: Sew the two pieces together, leaving a bit of room for the stuffing
Step 8: Sew the two pieces together and sew the tail onto the bottom of the shirt
Step 9: The gills are the easiest to make. Cut a piece of fabric, to put around your wrist. Take scraps of the blue fabric left over and tie them onto the piece of fabric.
