I've been seeing so many cute Itabags on here and I've wanted to make my own for a while now! I also have a convention coming up in less than two weeks so this was the perfect time to kick my butt into gear to make my first one! (I'll be going to AnimeNEXT :) ) The theme for my Itabag is none other than my one true love, The Prince of Tennis. (/ε\*)

I got this super cute bag off of Amazon for a little more than $20. I know I've seen it cheaper on sites like Aliexpress but I was pressed for time and I really really like 2-day shipping with Prime.

I decided that I was going to make a cardboard cutout instead of pinning everything directly to my bag. This makes removal easy and I like keeping my options open! Then I went to Joann's Fabrics to buy some safety pins and picked out a nice shade of blue in a fat quarter since they're really cheap. I have this Tezuka Kunimitsu brooch from The Prince of Jewel line and it's a darker blue so I wanted to match the fabric with the jewel! (ノ∀`♥)

I cut my cardboard into an approximate shape of the bag and hot glued my fat quarter to the cardboard.

After the glue dried, I put it in the front part of my bag to see how it looked and I think I like it!

Then I laid out everything I had that I could find to see what I wanted the layout to look like. I don't see any of the keychains I have listed in the database, but I don't know enough about them to add them! I'm 99% positive the non-acrylic ones are not unlicensed or counterfeits though. I did find one of the Tezuka keychains listed here on Goodsrepublic but any info they had that I didn't know was that it was released in May of 2003! ( 〃..);;

The three big acrylic keychains were bought from an artist in a convention's artist alley but I don't remember who the artist is #rip

I put the top row in little plastic baggies at first just to keep them safe from any safety pins gone rouge in the process. I thought it was a one and done thing but I pinned everything on too low!

Back to the drawing board I guess!

I kept the Tezuka brooch in it's original packaging because I'm a nut and I want to keep it as safe as possible because it's my precioussssssss. (/ω\)

After some final adjustments, I finally finished! I also found a non Prince of Tennis related keychain of a tennis racket that I owned so I attached it to a zipper. It's blue and it kind of matches!

My first itabag! It's kind of Seigaku themed but then there's a random Atobe and Oshitari in there but it's okay, I love them too ;;;

I have more Tenipuri stuff but I've moved around so much that I can't find some of it, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed they'll turn up eventually. But for now, please let me know what you guys think! I think for my next one, I want to get more pins to use instead of keychains. (When I was younger I definitely was a keychain kind of girl ahhhh)

redstars2 år sedan#35218508Yeah same haha. I thought about buying the CDs, but I have too many collections as it is. My wallet wouldn't survive.

Same. Some of them have gorgeous album covers though so I might just buy the ones I really love haha.

Agartha2 år sedan#35182530Yep, I'm really enjoying it here! I still see some LJ's around with stuff but most of them have vanished. I remember there was one that had so much Tenipuri music up for download and then one day it just disappeared! :')
Would it be alright if I sent you a friend request? :)

redstars2 år sedan#35179217Yay that would be great!
I've been in the fandom since back in 2004, when it was crazy active on LiveJournal. I miss those days! Also mostly lurking because I'm shy in general haha. I'm sorry about the bad experiences! Most people I've found are super nice so I hope you enjoy it here. :)

Agartha2 år sedan#35178908You can definitely have Shiraishi if we do end up splitting something with him in it in the future! (ovo)b
I’m super excited to find other fans too! I was never active in the community when the fandom was huge. I only lurked around because of a few bad experiences haha but everyone I’ve talked to on here is really nice!

redstars2 år sedan#35178530No worries, I can't blame you! Tempted myself but I can't justify the whole set without Shiraishi haha. I would be interested in future splits depending on the items!
Also I forgot to mention: I love the itabag and I got really excited seeing it was a Prince of Tennis one. This fandom used to be so huge and then it pretty much died, so seeing other fans is always nice.

Agartha2 år sedan#35178328Hello! I think for this set I’m going to bite the bullet and buy all of them since I’m partial to so many of these cuties, but in the future if you would want to split something else Tenipuri with me I would definitely be interested! :)

Agartha2 år sedan#35031872I've been eyeing this new set of keychains as a preorder, mainly for Tezuka ahaha. I'm not sure how I feel about the price, but this is the only place I found that had these for preorder. More straps for my itabag??
