This year I am so excited to share the boys will be Flounder, Sebastian, and our very own Little Mermaid! I shared a 15 minutes no sew Sebastian tutorial earlier this week and now it is time to share how I created a very easy to make and most importantly comfortable Flounder baby costume.

I got very detailed with the way I sewed on pieces. However, you can make this a new sew costume by replacing all the sewing steps with a hot glue gun. It will surely cut your production time significantly. Let’s dive right in!

Supplies:

Yellow Onesie/Footie

I went with the option of a yellow footie to prevent from worrying about it being cooler at night or pants/tights/leggings etc. The footie I picked actually came with a beanie so I did not need to purchase one separately.


Yellow Baby Beanie

This is optional. My footie pajamas came with a yellow beanie to which I added Flounder’s eyes. If you wish to skip the beanie part you do not need the white or black felt.

2 shades of blue felt

I went with an aqua colored and royal blue shade for the fin and flippers

Thread & needle or Hot glue

The choice will depend on you. You can replace the sewing with hot gluing and boom you still end up with a super cute costume.

Directions:

1.The first thing I did was cut out the stripes on Flounders sides. I did not use a stencil, I just made them a little squiggly. The beautiful thing is you can make them however you want! I cut 2 sets, 4 different sizes.

2. Second, I cut the fin and the flippers. I tried to make the fin proportionate to the size of the outfit. Remember Flounder’s fin and flippers are significantly smaller than his body.

3. Third, and last cutting part- the stripes on the fin and flippers. I made them curve a little and added 2 to each flipper and to the fin.

4. Here comes the sewing or glueing. I attached the stripes to the flippers and fin first. I made mine double sided.

5. After the stripes were on I sewed the stripes onto the yellow footie. I gave them a tiny bit of space between the stripes and went from largest to smallest.

6. I then sewed the fin and flippers to the yellow onesie and boom!

Congratulations you are done! I was so happy with the turnout of this simple DIY costume! Affordable, comfortable, and easy to make- 3 of my favorite things! Happy Halloween everyone!
