Don't you hate foraging around for a pattern piece you've just stuffed back in it's envelope along with the other 50? This tip is simple tip but might just be the answer ...

When folding a paper pattern to go back in its envelope, fold each piece so that the pattern details are face up. That way when you’re looking for 'FRONT 1' you don't have to unfold every single pattern piece to find it.

Why hadn't I thought of that before? To extend on that thought....I always put the pattern pieces back in at the front of the envelope so I'm not forever ripping out the entire contents.
