I’ve seen many people ask how others organize their printed PDF patterns. So I thought I would share how I organize mine. But not only that, I want to share a free binder printable for you if you want to organize in a similar way that I do. All you need to do is subscribe to my newsletter which will let you know whenever I have a new post up on the blog.
I have included 4 different labels…accessories, bags and pouches, adult clothing, and children clothing. Each one has a full page for the front of the binder as well as one for the spine. I included one for a 2, 3, or 4 inch spine. You will just need to cut out the correct size for your binder on the cut lines.
What I do with my printed PDF patterns is fold them and put them into sheet protectors in the appropriate binder. So it’s more of a visual as to what each sheet protector is holding, I print out the main pattern page and put it in the front. Then, when I want to sew up the pattern again, I just have to find the binder and sheet protector for that pattern, unfold the pattern, and start cutting out the fabric.
I hope this helped you organize your patterns a little better. Be sure to grab the free binder printable and let me know what you think!
