  1. 1

    Lay the fabric roll down flat and unroll it by about a foot.

  2. 2

    Place the samurai sword on the fabric, making sure only the blade is on the cloth. Samurai sword covers usually leave the handle exposed.

  3. 3

    Outline the blade of the sword using a marker.

  4. 4

    Move the sword over and outline the blade a second time. This is to assure that you have two equally shaped and sized strips of fabric for the sword's cover.

  5. 5

    Cut out the two outlines.

  6. 6

    Place one of the cutout outlines down flat, making sure the printed side is facing up.

  7. 7

    Squeeze a thin line of fabric glue around the top and side edges of the outline cutout.

  8. 8

    Layer the second cutout over the glued one, making sure the print side of the fabric is facing down. Press the edges of the two fabric strips together to adhere them. Let them dry for about an hour.

  9. 9

    Turn the adhered fabric pouch inside-out to expose the printed side of the fabric while concealing the glued seam.

Tips and warnings

  • Slide the cover over the blade, making sure to follow the shape of the blade with the cover.
