Over the weekend, I hand-sewed a paper pouch! I used a special type of paper which is kind of elastic. The pouch is water resistant and almost impossible to tear. It's one of my favorite materials to work with right now.
I use it to store my daily craft essentials - or the things I never leave home without aside from my cellphone and wallet.
1. Pencil with built-in eraser - I prefer the mechanical type because the lead is thin which makes it easier for me to draw intricate designs.
2. X-acto craft knife - #11 is my favorite blade! The tip, though delicate, is super sharp and makes clean cuts.
3. Notebook - the one in the photo which was designed by Fran, is just one of the many notebooks I always bring. In anticipation of all the waiting I need to do every day when I'm out, I carry a notebook where I can keep my ideas, drafts, and plans.
4. Washi tape - for a lot of things ;)
How about you, what are your craft essentials?
On a side note, after my workshop last Sunday, my friends from LM, Carlo, Omps, and Miko dropped by the studio after their bike out. I was so happy seeing them and showing them around the studio. Now, I'm starting to miss the outdoors again!
PS You can hold your craft workshops and events at the studio. More details HERE.
