Organize: Sewing Patterns

Monday, March 12, 2012

Lately I've had the urge to organize my home/life. I would say there are two causes: 

1. It's spring and it seems to be a natural urge to "spring clean"
2. I have so many papers to write that my mind is trying to find something else to think about.

I used to have all my sewing patterns tossed sloppily in a plastic tote in the closet. Once I started using patterns from the internet or sewing books (where I had to trace the pieces onto pattern paper), it really got sloppy. And then one day I realized... duh! File them!

Here is where I store my patterns now:

Now there is a spot for everything:

Even my little file case, in the closet! 

It makes things so much more simple. :)

I don't exactly have this problem seeing as I don't sew, but I do have to say that the last photo made me smile :) I love an organized closet! Haha...
