The hearts are simple to sew (or at least hard to mess up) and so this makes a great mommy and me sewing craft . And of course you could always substitute the Pink with another color like a bright green like Key Lime Pie or lovely blue like Sparrow if pink isn’t your thing.
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.
