Too bad, was hoping you could make me a more comfortable seat in the plane!

Hello everyone, I'm new here, and I was hoping you could give me some advice on a similar problem...

From the end of this month onwards, I'm going to be travelling for six months. As my journey starts with sitting on a plane for 14 hours, I've already found a lot of different ideas in this topic. But I'm also looking for ideas to continue crafting during these six months. I love making jewellery, however, I'm only allowed 20 kg luggage which means I won't be able to bring my beads and supplies. Other than that, I love paper crafts. Since finding this site I've already started experimenting with inchies, as these seem like a fun craft! Is there anything else you can recommend, that doesn't take up loads of space in my suitcase? I'm quite keen on trying out all sorts of stuff!

Thank you! Smiley

How about paper quilling? The materials are pretty compact for the basic supplies. Of course, once you've made the shapes, they take up a bit more room, so maybe that won't work for a 6 month journey.  How about a travel journal? You could paint up a bunch of backgrounds before you go and then you'd just need to bring along some pens and some glue to put stuff in it. Here's a fantastic example (and on the second page of the thread, she shares some info on how she set it up):

You're welcome! I'm hoping to make one myself the next time I take an interesting trip. I hope you'll share some of yours if you make one!

What I did was to pack a cross-stitch project and pre-cut a bunch of threads.  I had to leave a threads hanging in the back of my fabric until we got to our hotel and before I even checked I asked for scissors - lol - talk about getting strange looks - but it worked great on the plane.  I also was working on graphing a picture I was going to cross-stitch next and that was pretty portable, too.  As far as knitting needs go, the TSA website (at least at that time) as I remember it said they were a maybe and it was really up to whoever was working security at the time, but I wasn't going to chance having to threw my knitting needles away.

I plan to travel with a mini sewing kit, which I will pack in my checked duffel bag. As for needles, I just sew them into the lining of the purse or book bag I carry, close to a zipper or magnet closure, if possible. I haven't been stopped so far.

I will bring my art/travel journal and sketch book in my carry-on bag so I won't go crazy on my 4-hour lay-over at O'Hare on the way to Heathrow.
