Use ConTact Paper For Patterns
If you're like me, you probably have a few patterns that you use over and over, til they fall apart. I solved the problem by using clear contact paper. Cut pattern apart. Place contact paper with backing side UP. Peel enough of backing off to place pattern piece on it. Carefully place pattern piece on contact paper. Can be either side up, sometimes I cover both sides, if it's a real favorite! Patterns will last a long time, and won't rip or wear out so fast.

I've also transferred many of my sewing patterns onto interfacing. Just pin the patterns on the interfacing, cut them out and transfer all of the stitching lines and directions.
