I'm going on a trip in 2 weeks exactly.I;m in florida,have an overlay in atlanta georgia and then getting back on and heading to missouri.Can I bring sewing needles?

And today My sister and I made two pillows.One with pink fabric and one with purple.I have two medium sized squares of each color.

Is there anyway to make a piece of clothing out of them?

I checked the TSA website http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm#4

And didn't see anything about needles..but noticed they allow corkscrews. And knitting needles.

I bet sewing needles would be fine. Worst they could do is take them away.

Needles, yes, scissors no.  Some small scissors are allowed, but you're safest bringing a clean pair of nail clippers, which work just as well.  Have a fun trip!

And how big are your left overs?  You might be able to make an apron top, or stash them away until you have a few more scraps and make something patchy.

Yeah, I've been through security with TONS of pins and needles (WIPs) stuffed into carry-on, but never scissors. They'll snag those!

You can do what crocheters/knitters do and use a cutting pendant.  They should be with the knitting needles and such.  It is made by clover and round with a clover on it.  It is a brassy/bronze color.  They work great!

Thread from a long time ago I can see that but this has really helped me out. Looking forward to crafting during my journey, I'm just going to cut my floss into useable lengths and sort out the ends when I get to my destination, or the nail clippers sounds good too.

You can also use an old dental floss container to cut your thread. You can store your thread in it too and your needles.

I have a friend who had nail clippers in the carry-on stuff.  He would have had them taken except they let him break off the little pointy nailfile piece that rotates out from the clippers.  Go figure! I got into jury duty with plastic knitting needles and a pair of kid's scissors with round-tipped blades. But they took my Snapple bottle!
