Featured in the PR book!
When I find a pattern that I really like and want to use over and over again, I trace it out onto a piece of poster board, use a paper punch to punch a hole in it, and set a grommet into the hole. Then I can hang it on a cup hook on the wall for easy access whenever I want to use it again. The stiff cardboard makes it easy to weight and cut out with a rotary cutter, the grommet keeps the hole from tearing, and I can just lift down my favorite patterns instead of having to unfold (and maybe even iron) them.

Ahhh, good idea. After losing weight and multiple wadders and so-so's I've finally identified a pattern that works for me. I was just scrounging all the tissue pieces back together and should really make a sturdy, organized set. Thanks!

You may also want to summarize the instructions so you don't have to keep dragging them out. When I was making the same pattern once a month, I wrote on a sheet of paper "Finish pocket edge. Attach. Shoulder seam. Sleeves. Side seams." etc.... Just enough to remind myself of what to do next. I taped it to the wall above my sewing machine.
