I used to get soooooo frustrated with trying to store my patterns when I have used them.
Could just never get them to fit back into the Pattern Envelope they came in.
Bits and pieces everywhere.
I swear they expand somehow as soon as you take it out.
Then I found out how to do it. Bet you can't guess how. OK, I'm joking!
Easy as .....
Get one of the larger size - not sandwich size - that one will be way to small. snap lock plastic bags.
And voila YOU have everything - the whole pattern, instructions and envelope (for the pictures) - all nicely tucked away.
Just remember to squeeze that air out before you press it close.
