I'm so fed you with airlines (the budget ones) charging the amount of the third world debt to put a suitcase in the hold I have made a hand luggage flight bag to the meanest of the specifications (Ryanair) so it is lightweight and I can get a lot of clobber in for my 10 kilos!
Someone gave me the outer fabric, the webbing straps were off an old shopping bag, I bought the zip for something in the dim and distant past when Big Ben was just a wrist watch and found the lining in my stash - all I bought were the plastic feet £1.55. I did however use a third of a pot of Fabritac sticking the interior base in 'cos I was too lazy to and stitch it.
Appearing at an airport near you soon!

Good for you!  It's infuriating when your bag's ticket costs more than your own.

Another one for the revolution! I'm all for saving a penny and only travel with hand luggage. Did the same last big trip. Just  a hint - make sure your straps and the stitching there-of will support your 10kg of weight. Bit of planning and some severe pruning can get 3 months clothes in a hand luggage. Yeah for freedom!!
