my friend Jodi found this adorable sword holder on pintrest. i absolutly had to make one for bam. but the link was dead of course.
so i decided to bust out the pen and paper and make my own.
the pattern itself only took 20 minutes to make (i'm a professional remember) and it sewed up like a treat. see...
here is the pdf for the pattern.
construction is super easy. cut out two of each patter piece, plus one of interfacing if you're using a thin material (i used canvas for this one), sew the front and back of each piece together with a small (1/4 inch) seam allowance. notch, flip, and press. take the "sword piece" and make a 3 inch slot with the zig zag stitch with the stitch legnth as small as you can make it. make it in the shape of a rectangle about a 1/4 inch in width. i used bias tape on the very top of the sword piece. now put the sword piece on the shield piece, and stitch it on, leaving the top (bias taped bit) open. top stitch the sword/shied bit. now attach the shield/sword bit to the belt bit however you like. put on your favorite belt.
