Most f the time after I trim a pattern their are large pieces of tissue that are left over. In the past I've just tossed them in the trash. Not anymore! Now I use a 9 x 12 envelope to save the larger tissue pieces in and tack the envelope to a cork board in my sewing room. When I am altering a pattern and need pieces of tissue such as when I'm doing a FBA, I retrieve the tissue from the envelope, press it flat with a dry iron and insert and tape it where needed. It doesn't cost a thing but is oh so helpful.

I do this too! It works so much better then heavier weight paper and allows you to refold your pattern when you're done.

Smart idea....One thing I find annoying about sewing is the waste so I try to also save and reuse everything I can. Great idea!

This is a great idea! You can also cut it in 1 inch strips when you are having trouble with a difficult fabric that is slippery or sheer by slipping it under the seam line when you sew. Thanks for a great idea.
