How do you store your patterns? Pictures?

Just curious....

I have clothes patterns, diaper patterns, etc and am trying to come up with a good and organized way to store them.

I label big yellow envelopes and file them away in a small file box thing

I don't have many yet, but i have manilla folders for each size or pattern or extra copies of a pattern. I label each evelope on one end so I can flip through them.

Re: How do you store your patterns? Pictures?

Took this pic a few weeks ago; I now have 3.
If the pattern has been cut into or traced, they go in a zip top bag and then I paper clip it to the pattern. It all fits very well. Do the same if they're tutorials or pdf files, but I'm thinking that sense those take up a little more room, I may buy a 3 ring binder to hold the instructions/pics and then still put the pieces in a zip top bag. Some pdf files are 30+ so they're not as easy to fold down to size and what not.
Maybe I'll take more detailed pics and get ya'lls opinions.

I actually have a binder with plastic protector sleaves. Zips up so nothing gets loose. So far, so good ;0)

I just have mine piled in a wire basket/drawer thing, though i've thought about the binder idea, since i have to pretty much pull them all out to find one i'm looking for....i'm interested too to see any other ideas!!

Mine are piled into a basket. I just got ten more today ($1 simplicity patterns at JAs!!!) I need a better system. I like the binder idea. I'm picturing one of the 5star zip top ones.
