When I catalog my patterns they are always sliding out of the sheet protector. To stop the patterns from sliding, I add a sheet of paper inside the sheet protector with the pattern. Then I stapled the sheet of paper to the plastic sheet protector by the hole. This way I can still get the pattern out if I need it.

* Another quick tip since the paper is in there, I put two pattens in one sheet protector.One on each side of the paper. This saves money and make less bulk in the binder.

It is kind of hard for me too explain, but the more sheet protectors you use the more bulk. When I first started cataloging my patterns I had 1 pattern for every sheet protector and my binder started getting filled quick. So I tried the 2 in one sheet protector and was amazed at how much space I had left in my binder. Try it on a smaller version with four patterns. Use two sheet protectors with two patters in it. Then compare it with the same four patterns in there own individual sheet protector
