Akatsuki Toiletries Bag

I just love getting this kind of creative custom orders! I make a Naruto themed coin purse with the Red and White Akatsuki Cloud emblem on it. A customer asked me if I could make a rectangular shaped toiletries bag with the same emblems all over it. I have never made this type of bag before. However, there are many tutorials and patterns online for the basic design. I was able to adapt one to meet the measurements my client requested. It is a lot larger than┬áthe original design and shaped a little different but the idea is the same. It came out really awesome! I was even thinking of adding it to my regular offerings. Final bag measures 12″long x 7″ tall x 6″ deep.

This is a reference picture of the anime Naruto, this is the villain group known as the Akatsuki, they all wear the same jacket.


Here is my Akatsuki inspired toiletries bag. I’m really happy with it. However, it was a rush job so there are a few things I probably would have done differently, had I had more time to plan it out. For example, I’m not a hundred percent pleased with the way the lining came out. Instead of doing it as a separate┬álining, like with a purse. I probably would have done it as a part of the main pieces and finished the inside with bias tape, that way the lining would not be loose.


Tia’s Bag

This colorfull bag was a custom job I did for my aunt Lillian who likes to knits. I design all the pockets inside the bag to accommodate her books, long needles, and other small accessories. There is also a small pocket on the front for things she needs faster access to.
