Lightbulb Kunai/Shuriken Purse/Bag Tutorial

Hello. I decided to make this bag when my costume for cosplay was decided. A cross gender Uchiha Sasuke from Naruto. But I wasn't sure how to make it until I found pictures of Kunais and Shurikens. And it the end I came up with what I have.

I decided to share it with you all!!

Step one is to pick your cloth!

This will be your cloth for the main portion of your bag!

The grey will be for your shuriken and kunai.

See how well they match?

STEP TWO!

Get patterns for you shuriken and kunais. I used the kunai tutorial pattern from featherweight for my kunai and found a picture of a shuriken and edited it. I used a taco kit box for my pattern, use something like cardboard for your pattern too.

This is for the shuriken. You only need one.

This is the ring for your kunai. Its easier to make them seperate and it saves you room.

This is your kunai handle.

And this is your Kunai blade.

Make sure they don't look awkward together. I took about a quarter of an inch, give or take, off of the pattern to make it smaller and easier to put on my bag.

Use your handle pattern to trace the white portion of the kunai handle. Give yourself a lot of room around the pattern!!!!!!!

Sew the white part on to your kunai's handle and you'll have this!!

Trace 2

Trace 3.

Cut and VIOLA!!!!

Cut your oriental fabric to a good size. Try to make it even. Fold ove an inch at the top, bottom and sides of the cloth for the hem, machine or hand sew, just make sure its tight. Use the extra fabric to make the strap, sew it onto the sides. When you sew the bag together, make sure you give yourself enough fabric to make it big enough for use and long enough for the front flap where your kunai and shuriken will be sewn on. 3 yards should do it. You'll need about half a yard of the grey fabric.

This isn't 100% done, but it'll be similar looking, except nicer.
