Left 4 Dead Medkit

Added Dec 3, 2009

by sugarstitches

Everett, Washing...






I made this to wear with my Zoey jacket (which I don’t have good pictures of yet) to wear to the Left 4 Dead 2 launch at the Gamestop where I work. The bag is fully lined, and the zipper on the right opens a smaller, separate compartment from the left zipper. I used the L4D logo instead of “FIRST AID” because I didn’t want people to think it was actually a first aid kit. Made in about two nights with no pattern.

Material Notes

Red and white canvas, black kona cotton (lining), black nylon strapping




Garment Type
Cotton, Other

    Wow. That is so awesome and one of the best Medkits I’ve seen by far! Would you ever make them and sell them? Just curious. :)

      Unfortunately not, I just kinda made this one by trial and error. Thanks for the compliment, though!

      I do make plushies, but it really depends on what you want, and the only example I really have up is my Mr. Saturn plush in my gallery.

    I really like this. I plan on making myself a bag without a pattern, but I don’t see your straps. What’s up with that?

    Let me know plz.

      Well, I didn’t have any straps because I wanted to be true to the game, where the sort of mysteriously just stick to the back, so for the event, I basted some velcro onto the back of the bag, and my jacket.

      That’s how it’s attached in the photo, but I really wouldn’t recommend it, because even though I only had it stuffed with fiberfill, it was so heavy, it wound up pulling at the back collar, so the jacket sat funny all night.

    I really like this! I am planning on making one of these for my friend for Christmas. Do you have any advise?

      It depends on whether s/he’ll be using it as a collectible/prop, or if s/he will want it true to the game. Mine wound up a little larger than it should be, because I eyeballed everything around the two 7" zippers I bought for the front. So if you’re wanting it truer to the game, go smaller than 7" but larger than 5". For actually installing the zippers in a lined bag, this blog post (http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/02/zippered_inner_.html) was invaluable.

      Can’t offer much insight beyond that, as it was a hazy couple of nights, and when it came time to turn the thing, I was so confused, I literally sat and stared at it for half an hour before I had even the vaguest concept of how to finish it.
