craftschmaft Well, hello in-flight crafting! This week I discovered that you CAN bring sewing needles on a plane. No scissors so everything has to be pre-cut but this means 4 hours of uninterrupted sewing time between Singapore and Hong Kong. Woot! #sewing #softie #overexcited #smallthings 3w
  •   baamekniits Hooray! Uninterrupted? Where are your boys? 3w
  •   craftschmaft Boys are at home with daddy @baamekniits although they're so good on planes these days I could probably go uninterrupted even with them beside me. They're little rascals everywhere else but on a plane... Angels! 3w
  •   _barbarroja Cool :) 3w
  •   janelockrey @craftschmaft I discovered that you can buy travel approved nail clippers which can also be used for snipping yarn/thread! super helpful for inflight crafting! 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow I've been sewing my hexies up in the air all over the world. Love it. 3w
  •   craftschmaft Fantastic tip @janelockrey !!! Love it @raspberryrainbow ! 3w
