Carry-on bag

Next item sewn for the flight to NZ:
A bag for the Carry-on luggage.

I made the pattern after the maximum allowed measurements at Singapore airlines:
50 cm x 40 cm x 25 cm. That is 50 liter! I think it is huge. See the Knipmode magazine for reference. Of course in the picture it is filled and not quite that exact shape any more. And it may only be 7 kg (in the picture ist is filled with sweaters and weighs 6 kg).
The straps are long enough that I can carry it over the shoulder, but short enough that I can carry it in the hand without it reaching the floor.
It has one zippered and one 'open' pocket on the outside, and one zippered and one open pocket on the inside (for example for quick location of the zip-lock bag with the liquids).
The fabric is EtaProof, waterproof cotton.

That is a terrific bag. How clever to use the Singapore airlines measurements as your guide. I like the important magazine holder pocket!
