Since there really hasn’t been a ton of sewing going on around these parts lately, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve finally gotten around to doing to keep my sewing patterns in order.
For now they all fit quite nicely in my little storage box. You’re really going to laugh when you read this next part, but at one point in time (not all that long ago) all my sewing things fit inside this little box – with the lid on! Crazy, huh?
I also have my digital patterns stored into separate folders on my computer. On my desktop I have one Sewing folder and in that folder I have four sub-folders: Purchased Patterns, Free Tutorials, Inspiration Pics, and Book Patterns. I think it’s nice to keep them divided, that way I know which patterns I should really try and make something from (the Purchased Patterns folder). Also, I do scan in a lot of patterns from sewing books I check out from our library. I scan the pattern pieces and directions of the projects I’m most interested in and keep them ready and waiting.
