...recently I bought 9 new sheers for the picture window of my creme de la creme living room. This post is not about the sheers however, but rather the packaging they came in.
I trace off lots of patterns. After tracing it's almost impossible to get the new traced pattern and the original pieces back in the pattern envelope. I keep a box of cheap gallon size zip lock bags in my sewing room just for this purpose.
I was just about to haul these out to the trash when my hoarder instinct (which I am fighting by the way) kicked in with the idea of using the packaging for pattern storage.
I've traced this pattern three times to add my own twist to the design. (You know me, can't leave well enough alone.) All of it fits perfectly in this little zippered bag.
Me and my hoarder instinct are very happy with this...I'm just saying...............
