An honest look into the, somewhat messy, way I store my various types of sewing patterns. Including how I sort my sewing pattern envelopes, keep track of my traced pattern pieces, keep a tab on my large collection of pattern magazines and even some info on how I store my oak tag patterns.
As I say in the video, this is not meant to be inspirational necessary, there are lots of room for improvement when it comes to my methods, but I do think my type of storage can be helpful for other messy people, as it allows me to keep a decent order without having to spend hardly any time on organising my stash.
Now I would love to hear how you store your patterns! And I’m also curious on if (or how often) you purge your sewing patterns. I do think purging regularly makes it easier to keep the storage under control, but it can be kinda emotional to get rid of older patterns too.
