One of my new years resolutions (that I am determined to KEEP) is getting my house (and my life) organized. I do a good job (usually) of keeping everything tidy and neat, but when it comes down to nitty gritty organization...I could use some work!
I figure if I blog about it that #1 all of you will hold me accountable and #2 maybe you will suggest some of your own organizational ideas! I am always open to suggestions.
So last week I organized my pantry....which by the way I am LOVING! I breathe so much easier every time I open that door!!!
This week I tackled my sewing patterns. Now I know everyone doesn't have this problem, but a lot of you do sew because I follow your blogs and see all of your wonderful creations...so who knows maybe your patterns are a mess like mine.
Ok So I started out with my green basket and I was trying to refold the tissue and stuff it back into the original sleeve. Took me about three times to realize there are not enough hours in the day to ever figure out how to refold those stupid things. Then it was onto the hanger method. This worked for a while, but occasionally pattern pieces would fall off and I would loose them not to mention that it was a pain having them hang in my ohhh so tiny sewing closet (it is actually our hot water heater closet).
So after some research I opted to go with the file folder method. This is how it works...
So my Lettie (that is the pattern name) folder has the original sleeve with instructions, a bag with Size 1, a bag with Size 2, and a bag with Size 3.
Then I put them in alphabetical order by pattern name and made labels.
