Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on storing the downloaded then printed patterns? I have quite a few and because of the stiffness of normal copy paper and the size of the pattern piece I have them laying around in my sewing room temporarily without a home. Any ideas would be much appreciated! Thank you.

I fold mine and store them in A4/letter size envelopes. I stick a picture of the line drawing on the front with a nice big heading as to what the pattern is.
The instructions go inside along with pattern.

I put them in an A4 plastic sleeve and store hem in binders, one for tops, one for bottoms etc.

After I have taped them together and altered them, I roll them into tubes and put into cardboard photo tubes. I have found though, that I have not made a downloaded pattern twice and may start recycling the paper pattern.

i put mine in a large zip-loc bag with the name on the outside with a Sharpie marker. I have a plastic tote box where I store the patterns. There is a list on the outside of the box stating what is stored inside. Hope this helps.

I store mine flat in the spare room (yes, sewing is taking over my house), but I toss them if I don't think I'll ever reuse them and just keep the digital copy 'in case'.
