Fight school break boredom with this fun felt ninja craft.
These felt ninja throwing stars are lightning fast to stitch up and a great way to teach hand sewing your karate kid.
A traditional throwing star has a hole in the center making it easy to string on a belt for transport. While you can easily add a hole in the center we think you’ll agree the ninja belt bag creates a far more adorable storage option.
Hai – Ya! Of course your stealthy ninja needs some place to put his felt weapons.
Kick it up a notch with ninja faced pouches featuring a front pocket for easy access to your felt throwing stars. Very helpful in the event your samurai is faced with a sudden attack. Or store them on your black belt in the pouch pocket keeping your weaponry secure during all the stealthiest of ninja maneuvers.
Ninja Throwing stars also make a great DIY ninja birthday party favor.
