I copy my patterns onto freezer paper or painters paper (heavier but darker. Found in the painting section of home improvement stores) and I don't want to crease them when putting them away. I was told that designers hang their patterns with binder clips, so I decided to try it. I can hang several patterns with their copied directions from a picture hanger (I use small clips) and they stay out of the way behind a door in my sewing room. Now I can keep separate sizes together but separate and I can leave my vintage patterns in the file drawer. My Lutterloh patterns are also stored in the same way.

I do something quite similar, actually! I take my traced patterns, and clip them to a clothes hanger using clothes pins, then hang a piece of paper with the name and description of the pattern and size for easy reference :)

I see you use Lutterloh, so I am interested in how you store those patterns. Also, do you photocopy your Lutterloh patterns? I just bought the system, and have only done the vest and shorts from the pamphlet.

I wish I could see a pic of this setup. I canĀ“t quite visualize it.
