It is always a daunting task figuring out what art supplies to bring with me. Working with fabrics makes it a little bit harder than just bringing a box of paints and some canvases. I have to bring a sewing machine, ironing board & iron, cutting mat and cutting tools, rulers, threads, etc. The hardest part is narrowing down which fabrics to bring. It’s not like I can just mix a new color if I don’t have one. Since I like to be inspired by the location, I don’t always have an exact plan of what I’ll be doing and know what colors I want/need.
