For those of us that just don't have the ambition to manage a complicated way of storing patterns... :)

After I use a pattern, I normally want it to go neatly back into the envelope. So, what I do, as I am folding the pattern back to go in the envelope, I just iron as I go. (fold in half, press, fold in half again, press) When i'm finished, the pattern goes right back into the envelope, just like new!

I also iron my pattern pieces, but I do it after I've re-folded them to make sure that the pattern piece's number is prominently displayed. Then I place the pieces back into the envelope in numeric order (or alpha order if that's the designator shown on the pattern pieces).

I use clear plastic page protectors, that way I can put the pattern envelope in front & put the pattern pieces in with room to spare.

I also do that. I have a pattern cabinet, purchase from a fabric store and it's important that the patterns go back into their orignal envelope.

I have a great tip for patterns. I bought large 8x10 manila envelopes, cut the pattern envelope open, trimmed the sides then glued these to the envelope. (Front to front back to back. Works great for large or numerous pieces patterns.
