Featured in the PR book!
There have been many tips on how to store patterns but recently I realised that if I scan the photo from the front of the actual pattern and stick it on the envelope I have an excellent way of knowing which pattern is stored.

The enveopes I use are 12 x 16 inches and are big enough for the actual pattern and the one I have traced off.

Thanks, I will start my own pattern book now. Have only recently purchased my scanner and am still experimenting.

I keep a binder for all of my machine embroidery designs, too! It's great laying in bed at night while hubby is watching sports, I can plan my next project!

thanks for your comments. My only problem is that a lot of my patterns come from La Mia Boutique magazines which I borrowed and at that time did not scan the photos. Well, I know from now on.

Great Idea and I like the idea of the second copy and making a pattern book (or just adding it to my binder of notes). I would even add a swatch of fabric from the finished item for reference.

Regine, While you're at it, print out another copy and start yourself a "pattern book" to look at. Get some dividers and set up in sections - jackets, skirts, pants, active wear, etc., etc. Beats looking through the patterns themselves.
