The travel sewing kit: snapware container with lid, Fiskars scissors, embellishment items - you know the usual, metal washers, safety pins, metal sequins, aluminum poptops, embroidery thread, needles. A few sewing projects and Mistyfuse...because you just never know when you may need it. Always be prepared.I always bring a Moleskin journal with me. It's always fun to draw or make a paper collage on the pages. A great way to recycle a magazine that you read on the airplane. Get a glue stick and you're good to go.
