Making bracelets while traveling? by Flexiy 3 months ago

Hi all!
I am currious, do you make bracelets while traveling?

I usaully take my small A5-clipboard or seperate clip with me on the train with an unfinised easy bracelet. And i do regret it if i forget because it is so relaxing to do for my while on the train to or after work. :)

But in the upcomming week i will go on holliday and want to take more strings and my materials with me so i can tie bracelets on holliday. I only have a small suitcase with me so i am thinking about something easy and portable to grab and use if i want to tie.

I am curriuos how you are taking the necessary supplies with you? Anny ideas and can you explain it to me?

I usually use a safety pin (and do a buckle). That saves room for clip boards. Maybe you should plan ahead of time which patterns and bracelets and strings you want to use during vacation. So rather than bringing all your different yarns/strings, you could have them pre-cut and placed in ziplock bags (have a different bag for each bracelet and pattern. You can print up the pattern and fold it to fit inside the bag as well. :) Hope that helps!

I always store my work-in-progress and a few supplies in a cardboard box, like this one:

It can be used in a similar way to a clipboard, and stores all the supplies I need on the go :)

I usually set up a few bracelets before I go, that means cutting the strings and knotting a few rows, so I can see how the pattern goes.

It's also possible to use your phone to look at the pattern, that way you coulld still make the more complicated patterns without printing them on paper.

Thank you for the wonderfull ideas!

I bought a sturdy large pencase/beatycase to store some treads and materials. And thanks to your advice Allison98 i will zip the diffrent treads for bracelets in ziplock bags :) Makes it way better to organize. Otherwise i will have all the diffrent yarn in one big knot in my new travel pouch and spent my holliday unraveling all the strings instead of making bracelets.

And sammoming i have something like these cute cardboard suitcases, a straw suitcase to store my treads in the livingroomat home.
