Hai- Ya! DIY Felt Ninja pouches and throwing stars.

3 Nov

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.

DIY Felt Ninja Throwing Stars

You will need for 6 stars:

2-  9″ x 12″ sheets grey wool blend  felt (I used Grey Flannel)

Grey thread and sewing needle

Felter’s Freezer paper (Optional)

Templates at end of post.

As with most weapons precision is key when cutting the felt throwing stars, I cannot stress enough how helpful using Andie’s or the freezer paper methods for cutting out these pieces is.

To use felters freezer paper print out your shapes, cut them out  to make the most of your felt, iron the shapes down.

Lay another piece of felt under the ironed on piece and cut out matching sets of throwing stars.


Carefully peel the paper free from your star and set aside (These can be reused at least 3 more times)

    Hi, I am wondering what is the finished size on the Ninja pouches? I am trying to get the templates to print and it is a bit large for my printer. Thanks for the info.

      Try the fit to page option when printing. All patterns are sized to be printed on normal sized printer paper.

        I hit the “fit to page” option as well, but the pattern still makes the pouch only about 3″x4″. Is this accurate?

        Hello, I have them at about 4.75″ x 6.25″. I free handed them and then created my template from them. You should be able to make them at nearly any size since the sizes would increase or decrease as one. I wouldn’t make them any smaller than my measurements above though otherwise it would be too hard to reach into. Hope this helps
