Keeping Pattern Pieces Together

I am beginning to cut out a robe for my granddaughter. The pattern has several views. I am going to take the pattern pieces which go to one view and fold them together and secure with a paper clip or safety pin. The ones which are to be used for more than one view, I will keep together securing them in the same way. That will make the pieces easier to keep up with and there won't be as much searching for certain pieces

I like to put my pattern pieces in a standard letter envelope. That way I don't risk tearing anything and I can label it with the pattern number and what pieces are inside for quick reference. (I don't have to unfold each piece). It also fits back into the large pattern envelope nicely.
