Have you ever watched an anime or played a game where the character is a swordsman who somehow pulls a sword longer than their arm from a sheath on their back?
I have and it's down right annoying haha so I thought I'd do away with the sheath altogether partly because my dogs have decided that my old leather one was tasty :-\
here's how You can do the same.
This sheath is meant to be hidden under your shirt btw
please enjoy :-}
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
What you need:
1.Your favorite blade obviously :-}
2. Material of some sort I don't advise anything to thick I used the cover for the back of an old S.U.V.
3. Needle and Thread
5. A Metal washer
6. The secret ingredient :-} Magnets !! I took mine from an old hard drive
7. Your favorite snack mine being dried cranberries
Lets begin :-}
Step 2: Set Up
Here's how I arranged my magnets on the washer you can do as you like though just make sure your magnets are pretty strong
Step 3: Cutting and Sewing
Now I'm a terrible ..... seamstress? seamster? and I took no measurements
first you'll need to make a small pouch to hold the washer and magnets and sew it in there.
then cut two larger squares that you'll sew the straps to as shown
Now I'm not sure how to explain the whole but I hope the pictures will help as this is the bulk of it all I did was cut three 1 1/2" strips and sew one side of each on then fit it around my chest and over my shoulders
Do all that and your done it's not hard and only took me about and hour
I know a lot of you out there are better craftsmen and women than me and I'd love to see what you can do with my idea and hear your thoughts
thank you for viewing and I can't wait to hear from you all :-}
