In this post I’m sharing 9+Brilliant Sewing Pattern Storage Ideas To Rock Your Space
Last week I got the real taste of what it actually feels like to write an Honors thesis. We worked in the lab for around 17 hours, literally. I left my room at 9 am and came back at 1 am, the next day! By the time I got back my back muscles were so sore that I forgot I actually had a back.
Also, this month I went out of the way and SPLURGED on new fabrics and bag hardware. Got myself these beauties from Hawthorne Threads. Although, the original cost of the fabrics wasn’t much, I had to pay almost double for shipment to Malaysia. But, it’s okay, I promised myself this would be the first and last time. Also, whatever bag I make from these I plan to use them for at-least a 100 years (if I live that long), or pass it to my offspring. And, to make sure the fabrics stay as clean and lovely as new, I have just placed an order for a fabric protector. Let’s see how it goes.
Onto today’s post…
9+Brilliant Sewing Pattern Storage Ideas To Rock Your Space
I’m truly a digital person. I barely print out stuff as it reduces a lot of useless mess created by papers and saves up ton of storage space. And thanks to this my desk remains clean and clear and perfect for sewing. But there’s no alternative to printing sewing patterns unless of-course you could wear a digital outfit. Will that be ever possible? I hope not.
Any way, once the sewing patterns are in hard copy, it’s really a challenge to organize them so that you don’t have to turn the whole room upside down next time you want to sew.
Here are some super cheap and easy ideas to organize sewing patterns for a perfectly neat and inspiring sewing room.
1. Cardboard Boxes as sewing pattern storage boxes
Check out this perfectly affordable idea by Colette blog. All you need are these simple cardboard boxes and post-it notes to get all your sewing patterns organized and sorted out. You can easily divide all dress patterns in one box, tops in one, bottoms in one, bags in one etc.

For storing PDF patterns ring binders are a MUST HAVE. They make it REALLY EASY to organize all the pdf patterns based on the category. You can even get some fancy ones to match your room decor.
