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.

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.

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!
