If you are familiar with Marvel, then you are most likely aware that Hydra, a villainous organization of power-hungry bad guys, has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. (the good guys!). It came as a huge shock to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents when Hydra revealed their true identity to S.H.I.E.L.D. because they had been impersonating S.H.I.E.L.D. for so long. This bag represents that infiltration by seeming "good" in light and then revealing its evil side in the dark. This project is great for Marvel fans and is a fantastic way to add some pizzazz to your everyday tote bag.

<p>Oh my god. Thank you for giving this</p>
<p>Cool Work. Is the bag waterproof? </p>
<p>Thanks! As far as I know, the bag is not waterproof.</p>
<p>can you make it waterproof?</p>
<p>I'm not sure... You could try using <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KMYYQ36/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687742&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0000AY69N&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=033JFHMQV5W404D633RZ" rel="nofollow">this</a>, it might help.</p>
<p>thanks man</p>
<p>This is really clever! I'm not the biggest marvel fan but I do know that anyone who is would wan't one of these.</p>
<p>I can't open the file Hydra Stencil.studio3。。。Help</p>
<p>Hmm&hellip; Try right-clicking the file then selecting &ldquo;Open with&hellip;&rdquo; from the dropdown menu. Then find &ldquo;Silhouette Studio&rdquo; and try opening it with that.</p>
<p>The T-Shirt Iron-On Transfer Sheet is used in ordinary ink printer?The bag material requirements?My English is not good :D</p>
<p>Yes, an ordinary ink printer should work fine. Usually instructions come with the transfer sheets telling you what print settings to use with what printer. As for the bag, the material should be canvas.</p>
<p>Very cool. I just watched that movie and think this is a great idea. </p>
<p>Thank you very much dragonrising!</p>
great job, I have a cricut explore, i have no idea where to greet the vinyl as sticky stencil for fabric... where can I buy those? haha
<p>Thank you mchau2! The vinyl I used for the stencil is just regular vinyl. There is no specific type needed, as long as you can make the stencil with it and have it stick to the bag you're all set. <a href="http://us.cricut.com/Shopping/detail--Cricut-Denim-Vinyl-265-9041.aspx" rel="nofollow">This</a> should work fine for you.</p>
<p>Really awesome ! Like the project ! </p>
<p>Thanks Tonysworkshop!</p>
<p>That's really nice. I have done many hats by this way with template, but -Glow-in-the-Dark Fabric Paint- is out of my reach. I wish you good luck in future projects. :)</p>
<p>Thanks dstojanovic1! If you have any questions about glow-in-the-dark fabric paint or this project I'd be glad to help!</p>
<p>It didn't even cross my mind that no electronics used until i read the materials needed. It is really cool. (As agents of s.h.i.e.l.d. fan)</p>
<p>Thanks so much ninjanody! It does not use any electronics which is great because you don't have to worry about any batteries dying.</p>
<p>The only thing properly decent that can fit into everyday life without the electronic bulge 99% of the other have in Make It Glow</p>
<p>Thank you very much!</p>
<p>That's really nice ! But do you have a a less expensive way to make the stencil ?</p><p>I don't think buying a &quot;Silhouette Machine&quot; for $300 bucks, OMG...</p>
<p>You could definitely cut the stencil out by hand with a craft knife, as the author suggests.</p>
<p>Thanks Golork! Perhaps you can cut the design out from a sheet of sticker paper by hand using an X-ACTO knife&hellip; I attached a PDF file in case you do want to cut it by hand. Though, the Silhouette machine I have only cost about $120 and has been very useful for numerous different projects. I got mine from Amazon.</p>

<p>Hee hee hee this is awesome! I love how it glows in the dark, and how invisible it is normally! I'm also slight amazed how well those logos fit together and how I've never noticed before, a sad thing for a comic geek. Thanks for sharing!</p>
