Once I've completed a project, putting the pattern back in the envelope is near impossible, and I almost always have another project that I need to get started on.

My mother taught me to always iron my pattern peices when I was was cutting them out so that I would get a nice clean cut. I do the same when I am packing them away into 1-gallon plastic bags that I have gotten from the local dollar store. I take the pattern envelop and place it in the front of the pattern peices. The clear plastic allows me to see what pattern is in enclosed and also allows me to keep my cut patterns just as organized as the uncut patterns!

I have always ironed my patterns as well. Your mother taught you well. I haven't really thought much about it because I learned to sew when I was 7. Mostly self taught and a Patty Palmer Class back in the 70's. I appreciate the tips so I can remember to pass them down.

My mother taught me the same thing! Yay moms. I have some of her vintage patterns and they are in such good condition because of this technique.
