I am taking buttons, embroidery floss, glue, and scissors with me on my trip tomorrow to make simple button bracelets.

Also, I agree with drawing, writing, doodles being one of the best things. Smiley

Since you're already a knitter, how about trying Crochet? ..
I taught myself how to crochet using the Debbie Stoller book "The Happy Hooker" - it's has some really cool & hip projects. ....

I went for my first flight ever on westjet & was teaching myself crocheting (again) the flight attendants asked me neat the end- "so are you done yet?"  and I'm like- "no- I'm just learning!" -lol!

Glad to hear about that book- am still having probs..

Stricter airport regulations is a problem.  You could try paper folding crafts.  you won't need anything that shouldn't be allowed on the plane.

Tatting. Pony or Aero shuttles come with a tiny tip so you won't need to bring a crochet hook for attaching at picots, and since it's less than 1cm long it shouldn't be frowned upon. The shuttles are cheap, and the bobbin removable, so if needed the shuttle itself is easily discarded.

That's an aero shuttle with the extra bobbin shown to the side.
And the world needs more tatters Cheesy

Have you thought of carrying a water color kit and some of those water color paper cards.  You could work on painting ot stenciling you own holiday cards!

My parents won't let me bring crafts on a plane, so I just bring my journal and doodle in there and write sporadically in there.

The watercolour idea is a good one. There are special watercolour pencils you can buy that you can use with a blender-pen (usually sold in the same aisle as the Zig markers -- at least at Michaels).

Also you buy markers with the brush tips.

what about creating your own stationary...i saw something online about this yesterday (i could try to find the link for you)...all you would need card stock, some markers, stamps, and any type of embellishments you would want to use depending on your design - that would actually be really fun for a plane/hotel room  Grin
