It sounds like you have the opportunity to do the first Instructable on that topic...

Here's a bag to get you started, customize as you like.

thats kind of what i want. but the old book bags with 2 straps for your back? you know what i'm talking about? those kind but i have seen that tutouil (how ever you spell it) thanks anyway :)

- in case that you dont wanna use a sewing-machine, i would suggest to use hook-and-loop fasteners (as they come in glueable stripes as well as in sewable ones) or snap fasteners, if you can afford a screw press (they can be fastened by using pliers as well, but in my experience anything that is fastened into a fabric like pins or rivets, should be done by a screw press for solid and smooth performance) - If you make the bottle pockets maybe attach sum rivets at the upper end (just like rivets in Levi's jeans' pockets), that should make things more stable and keep it from pulling out.
