Managing my patterns

I was tired of handling my paper patterns.  You know.  You print a pattern that you find online, you cut it out and fight with it as you trace around it onto your fabric. 

I was done with that.  I went to the dollar store and bought a few poster boards and transfered my paper patterns onto the more sturdy poster board.

This is sooo much nicer.  It lays flat on the fabric and I can easily trace around the pattern. 

All I need now is more poster board for more patterns. 

How do you manage your patterns?

  1. This is a great idea. Back in the day when I had time to sew, well, small things, stuffed animals mainly, and when we used to eat more cereal, I would use the empty cereal box cardboard as patterns.
