I just finished most of Ino's back pouch.

It's divided into two compartments for:
a)Some item that go with Ino.
b)My own stuff without carrying another bag with me.
Sewing the outside edges was a pain. :sulk:
I haven't added the button to it yet because I haven't decided what kind I should put in.... velcro,regular button, or those eye thingys. Some suggestions?
I'm not sure if I should sew the back flap to the back or not.

Tell me what you think? Because it still doesn't look so right to me.

I think they look great ^_^ awesome job.

I'd suggest velcro.

Personally, I like snaps because they stay closed well. Kind of hard to put on though. Velcro would be my next choice.
I don't know what character this is for, but it looks good either way! Smart thinking; putting two compartments like that.

^^; now that I think of it, snaps would be the best to use. I agree with procrastinator.

It's the back pouch from Naruto. I'm making Ino's costume.
Are there different sizes for snaps? How hard can putting snaps be? Are snaps the round metal pieces that one side bumps up and the other dented in? I'm never good with what things are called.

yep, that's what snaps are, there are several different ways to attach them, many just sew on like buttons. You should be able to find them at your local fabric store, in black, red, silver, and white, should you want to match the color of the bag. Nice job by the way. Did you use a pattern or just wing it? It turned out well either way.

It really didn't need a pattern. I only needed to draw a circle and trace it on to the fabric. I calculated the size through pictures as reference, and just kinda wing at it at putting it all together...(Trial and error) :thumbsup: The hardenst part was the flap because it kept it was so hard to get the straight-to-round part to come out evenly.

You can also get snaps that are hammered on or use a special kind of plier to attach. By the way, in the sewing industry, the two sides of the snap are called the male and female sides. It looks pretty good, but it really needs to be pressed, I think. It's a light color, so use a press cloth or a scrap of the fabric between the iron and the pocket so you don't get any discolorations.

I'd go with a heavy duty snap like Tiirz suggested. They're really easy to put in, and instructions come on the package, anyway. They open and undo really easily, but not so easily they will come undone.

Other than that, the pouch looks great! It's actually a circle... that's what I like about it. Did you interface the insides, so that when you put stuff in, it still keeps the round shape, instead of sagging in the middle? (or something other than interfacing, like thin cardboard)
