I resume work on the flight of fancy bag

While I wait for the the Bernat Super Value bright yellow and carrot yarn to arrive so that I can finish my Sunshine and Shadow baby blanket, I decided that I would turn my attention to another of the many UFOs that I would like to finish.

After looking over the many options, I settled on the flight of fancy bag, one I am constructing from 360 Bauhaus blocks.

Inspired by the flight bags toted by flight attendants of the 1960s, when I first began work on the bag, I envisioned it as an easy to carry, easy to wash tote that could be used to transport all of the necessities (with the exception of one’s current crochet project) a person would need to get through a long weekend.

With one of the two 10 x 10 unit panels needed to complete the bag finished, I got as far as the second row of the second panel before it was time to take photographs.

Here is my progress from yesterday and today:

as well as this view of the front and back panels-to-be side-by-side:

and the top, sides, and bottom of the bag:

I hope that in the next few days I am able to make more substantial progress on this bag as there are still some adventures left on this summer’s agenda, and I think this might just be the perfect tote for just such an occasion.

  1. I just re read what to blogged regarding the flight of fancy tote bag and realized it’s still in the works. Is the pattern completed? Or are you designing it as you go? Will you be selling/ giving away this tote pattern once it’s completed? I love the color work! My favorite as well as all bags & totes!
