Sketchbook: I design all of my works by sketching first. Most of them are on the sketching book. However, there will be some that I have experimented on the computer laptop screen. I am not an expert on that yet so sketchbook in my best friend at the moment.
Pencil: With embroidery what we need is the sharp lines so we can stitch along. I use HB to draft first and complete the sketch with 4B Mechanical Pencil.
Eraser: every experiment come with mistake 🙂 We need this helper to fix it.
Watercolor and brushes: I use Reeves on most of my works. Few different brushes depending on the size of the work.
Nothing fancy in this category. I got all of them from stationery shops and Officeworks.
