For patterns that are reused often, like craft patterns, I always use a stiff fusible interfacing ironed onto the tissue to keep it from tearing with continued use. Since storing these pieces back in the original envelope is not always possbile, I use clear zip lock bags to keep everything together and visible.

You might try a press cloth on top of the pattern piece to reduce the amount heat a smidgen to prevent the tissue from shrinking. I have not noticed significant shrinkage without the press cloth however.

That sounds like a great idea. How do you keep the pattern tissue from shrinking, or isn't that an issue?
