Store Sewing Patterns in Ziplock Bags

I do a lot of sewing, using the same patterns over and over. After a while, I've lost pieces, which drives me nuts! I finally figured how to solve the problem. After I cut a pattern apart, I put it in a Ziploc bag, with it's envelope. I don't have to worry about pieces slipping out if it's turned upside down, and it's easy to store. Won't get torn or wet.

I do that too. I also cut my pattern envelope down one side and across the bottom making a folder. You can put the pieces in the "folder" and see the back to read yardages through the plastic.
