Picture of Bike Handlebar Bag

I’ve been in the market for a while now for a good handlebar bag.  I wanted something cheap that can carry the basics (camera, wallet, keys, Clif Bars, etc.). The problem is that I’m a poor college student and didn’t want to spend $30 or more on the bag. Do you know how much Ramen that is? So I decided to make my own.

The bag actually turned out pretty well. It fulfills all of the above-mentioned criteria and cost a grand total of $4. It took about an hour to make. My description here is kind of clumsy, but check out the photos for clarification.

This is my first Instructable. I was surprised that there wasn't one on here already for a handlebar bag, so I decided to document my efforts.

you should enter this into the bicycle contest, it would get my vote :D
