Featured in the PR book!
I am too excited!! My husband recently emptied out a portable filing folder~the kind with hard sides and a latch to keep it closed ~ and as I was looking for pieces of my Kwik Sew sewing for Childrens books' (again~ i always waste a lot of time searching for the right size and pieces) I came up with a plan> I found each of the books and master patterns (1 each for toddlers and children) and placed the toddlers pattern and book in the first pocket. Then in each pocket behind the book I placed all the traced off pattern pieces for each size(one pocket per size). After that I placed the KS sewing for children book and master pattern and again placed pattern pieces for each size in subsequent pockets.
This will save lots of time in searching for the right size and the book(which always ended up in a different spot somehow!), not to mention procrastination because I dreaded the search! I hope this will increase productivity in the process !
Hope someone can use this tip!

Happy sewing!

Hilary, this is such a wonderful idea! I'll have to put this on my office supply list - one for each KS book. Thank you!

Hilary, I like the idea. I think an expanding file folder would also work nicely. I am going to give it a try. Thanks!

you could use any kind of portable filing folder, with multiple pockets. Mine is like a little case with a handle on the top, and thit has a latch on the front to hold it closed. when you open it it has a bunch of pockets, just like a filing cabinet only its a little case with a handle you can carry it around. Does that help? i hope so!

What kind of filing folder do you mean? I don't think I understand :(
