I had to make this. I'm a big Red vs Blue fan; hell, Halo in general (although I don't get to play very often). Anyways, I constructed this out of a $15 pair of size 9 jeans, mesh is left overs from my upcycled inFamous jacket (get that up here soon) and a $.99 thermal shirt for the inside. I wanted "water-proofed" so I lined the inner "inside" of the 2 bag pockets with duct tape. Then some stenciling; I can't say enough for contact paper for stencilling.

I'm very particular with seams; I try and hide them. So trying to sew up the inner bag (2 zippers, 2 pockets to hold books, laptop, etc.) and the sides proved a bit difficult with this first trial run.

I was lucky to fine the zippers from an old CD storage case I nearly chucked into the garbage. In keeping with down-sizing while upcycling, dismantled the CD case and saved the parts for supplies.

I have recently been commissioned to make 2 of these bags. I have been able to make 2 of these messenger bags out of a one yard of fabric (outer shell, $3 yd), one laundry bag (enough to divide the inside into 2 pockets per bag, $1.50), the strap adjuster and buckles ($10). Total: $14.50 for 2 bags.
