hey. i made my bag out of recycled plastic bags (i won't go into how to fuse them as it's been told by quite a few other people) it's a messenger bag, only boxier.the stencil reads recycling is for lovers...only i spelled it wrong(damn spell check). i also used red yarn and sewed along all the seams to make it more sturdy and i lined the inside with duck tape.  i tried to find bags that said stuff about recycling, so most of the panels read please recycle, or after you use me please recycle me, and so one. One side actually has a whole paragraph about recycling and how to do it. I'm pretty stoked on it..even though the yarn part took FOREVER..it was worth it. oh, and it also has a velcro closure so here ya go!

Aww I love this! it looks great! I have a shirt that says "Vegetarianism is for lovers" and this bag would look so cute with it! I like all the detail, and dont worry, I highly doubt that many people will notice that you mis-spelled Recyling lol, its cute either way!

I would have noticed had it been right-side-up, but I definately didn't notice it sideways XD

Either way, I think it's insanely cute!
