Expanding on today's topic on the Instagram #sewphotohop of storage tips,
I try to do right by the patterns, first of all.
I put all the patterns in acid-free magazine and comic book bags
The envelopes don't get caught on each other this way, and since I already buy them for my comix, I get them in bulk dirt cheap.
It's also easier to fold patterns to that size and put them in with the cover, rather than try to stuff them all back in together again.
Also helps hold the traced pieces.
