Top Tube Bag DIY Help

PSA: This is my first post, sorry if I put this in the wrong place.

I just got my first gravel bike, upgraded from a 1985 Schwinn Voyager SP to a Priority Apollo Gravel (I'm too new to attach pics yet). I'm really enjoying going for rides with bike packing style bags instead of a pannier like I used to with my Schwinn. I'm in the process of sewing my first frame bag, which will be a full-length top tube bag. I was curious if there are any veteran DIYers out there who could give me some design tips and drop some helpful knowledge for creating my top tube bag. I'm planning on using 1000 denier Cordura as the shell, with 400 denier Cordura as the liner, with webbing tabs on the bottom for securing it to the frame with rope. I'm not far enough along to show pictures of prototypes, but I could attach some pictures at some point if anyone is interested.

I'm new here, so I really just want to talk to people about bike stuff and learn some things from others. If you have any thoughts you want to share, I would appreciate it!
