How do you store your oversized patterns?
The majority of my patterns are stored in a standard filing cabinet. I keep PDF patterns and patterns that I’ve traced in manila envelopes. The patterns in the manila envelopes and patterns in their original pattern envelopes fit easily in the filing cabinet. But there are those patterns that are too large to fit in the cabinet. For me, that means my Jalie patterns. I also don’t store my Burda and Ottobre pattern magazines in the cabinet because I use them too frequently to file them away. Up until now, both the pattern magazines and the Jalie patterns have been stored in stacks on my bookcase, but it looks messy and unorganized, and often, the piles collapse all over my floor. A solution was in order.
