Featured in the PR book!
I copy my pattern pieces onto plastic and I make lots of notes when I alter a pattern and it was hard stuffing all this back into the pattern envelope UNTIL I discovered...

COMIC BOOK PROTECTORS! -- light clear plastic sleeves that fit the pattern envelopes beautifully, don't obscure the envelope front picture and still have lots of room and flexibility to hold any extras.

Get them cheap on eBay: click HERE.

Do these fit into a 3 ring binder? This seems like a good way to protect my vintage patterns.

The ones I have wouldn't fit into a three ring binder BUT go to ebay and see the array of plastic protectors that some of the vendors offer. I gotta believe they make comic book protectors that can be snapped into a binder! Good idea!

jadamo00, What kind of plastic do you use for tracing pattern pieces? Carolyn Hoppe

For tracing pattern pieces, I get a clear plastic dropcloth from the Dollar Store! You can trace a bunch of patterns for a buck! I buy them three at a time!
