Given that this particular forum is about "Pattern Modifications, Design Changes & Pattern Drafting", I'll stick with notions specific to that endeavor. Among tools already mentioned....

- Set of colored art pencils: Prismacolor [I bought a box of 36 at a local art supply store. They erase very easily.]
- Eraser: Staedtler Mars Plastic Eraser [Best eraser I ever used. Lasts forever.]
- Electric pencil sharpener

I use this as pattern paper. It's a table cover that isn't smooth, but easily drawn on, wide widths, inexpensive and can be sewn/ fitted if you're careful.

Sketching pencils with ebony lead is also good, since they leave marks dark as a pen, but the ease of using a pencil. Not the cheapest in the world, but they're about $5 for 12 and that will last a year or better, depending on how often you need them.

A bolt of muslin. I use a Joann's coupon to get 40 or 50 off. I also buy a heavier weight in 5 yard lengths from Gorgeous Fabrics.com
