Thanks a lot for all your answers. I might try taking knitting needles, but i asked to an Air France lady on the phone a few months ago, and she told me she wasn't sure but she thought it wasn't possible... now, she might not know well about knitting needles Smiley
i also just checked, and on the Parisian airports website, it's said that knitting needles are forbidden (but they're not mentionned on the french airport safety website)...

I'm in need of ideas, so i hope you'll help me: for my work, i currently have to travel a lot, and since i'm pretty bored in hotel rooms, i was looking for some craft/thing to make that i can take with me. From now, i've always packed my knitting needles when i take a suitcase, but for when i'm only gone for 2/3 days, i'm keeping my luggage with me, and so no knitting needles on your handbags...

So maybe you have ideas for me, about what i could do that doesn't require any material that's cutting, or sharp...

It broke as I was folding it (before the firing, as it was still soft and easy to fold).
I read somewhere that Art Clay is twice as thick as PMC, so maybe it has something to do with it... Did somebody try with Art Clay?

First, all the designs posted here are pretty amazing! it inspired me to try to make a "cocotte en papier" (i don't know the english name, but it's vaguely a chicken and looks like that: http://perso.orange.fr/corobu.mireille/cocotte.jpg), using a 4cmx4cm Art Clay Paper square. And unfortunately, even if i tried to fold as "loosely" as possible, the different pieces broke down where it had ben folded.
Do you know how not to have this problem?
Thanks for the help! Smiley

Wow thanks a lot for the nice comments! It was actually pretty easy to do (a little weird first because I wasn't used to knit with such little needles - 2 mm) - the only slightly difficult part for me was to understand what "kfb" means Smiley

To make them, I used polymer clay beads from an old necklace, and adapted the size of the knitting to each of them (they were not really regular). For what I saw on crafts shops where they sell already made beads (might be crochet), there's a wooden bead inside.

About the pattern, I only used the gartner stitch described in the Knitty pattern.

I'm not sure whether I should post this in the knitting board or jewellery board... anyway, I made this knitted beads necklace, with inspiration from the Julie pattern (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTjulie.html) in the Summer 06 issue of Knitty.

Since the ribbon wasn't going through the tiny holes of my beads, I used black yarn, and knotted it to the ribbon in the end.
Voila Smiley

J'habite sur Paris. Je n'ai pas vraiment cherch sur les pages jaunes (j'aurais peut-tre d commencer par la), mais c'tait plus pour savoir si quelqu'un avait des bonnes adresses.
J'ai test la droguerie aussi, mais j'ai trouv qu'il y avait trop de temps d'attente, et vu que je ne sais jamais ce que je veux...
