Now that the Pyjama Party tutorials are behind me, I can return to a sorely neglected project. Anyone remember this?
Whilst working on my dress, I’ve tried to be really careful about storing my pattern pieces back in their paper envelope the moment I’m done with them. But then I find I need to remind myself of a notch or grain, and pull the pattern piece out again, shove it back in the envelope, tear the envelope a little, crumple the pattern piece… Enough!
I dug out the above Samla box from IKEA. It’s the absolute perfect size for storing my envelope and pattern pieces. This is where they’ll stay, tidy but easily accessible, until this project is over. Much better than the slow, gradual degradation of my pattern and envelope.
Do you have any other tips for storing pattern pieces for a Work In Progress?
