Tip 207: Organize Your PatternsBy DianeSev on 10/24/11 11:44 AM


I carry photos of my pattern info on a looped cord like an oversize key ring so I can bring patterns and yardage info to meetings and for shopping.

  • I laid out the patterns in three rows, four to a column, and snapped a digital pic in the highest resolution. I printed them on 8"x10" photo paper and cut out each individual pattern picture.
  • Using a glue stick, I mounted each pattern pic on poster board cut slightly larger than the photo to make a border for the hole punch. I reinforced the holes and wrote the pattern's fabric recommendations and yardage on the back of each card.
  • I strung the photos on a thick serged chain and tied both ends together. This loops easily through my handbag strap.
