I'm trying to give my space a little bit of a sort out before I start sewing again for the new year, and I decided to start with my patterns. As you can see below they'd gotten in a bit of an unmanagable mess.
I went to Officeworks and bought a pack of B5 envelopes (a bit bigger than A5 sized). I also remembered just as I started that my printer can print on envelopes!
So I sorted out all the patterns that were in plastic wallets and printed out nicely uniformed labelled envelopes. As well as any notes I had, for printed out or traced commercial patterns I included the line drawings of the patterns, and for self-drafted or highly modified patterns I included photos.
Now my pattern stash is much more organised and easier to look through for either specific patterns or just for inspiration.
How do you organise your patterns?
