I got an email about pattern storage envelopes from https://www.creative-industry.co.uk/pattern-storage-envelopes/?utm_source=Creative+Industry&utm_campaign=80c4ec4310-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_03_27_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1bdc0f001d-80c4ec4310-1246825429&mc_cid=80c4ec4310&mc_eid=c83c399830
I'm thinking about treating myself. I have their Maker's Workbook which I find v useful.
Use code envelope15 for a 15% discount till 26 June.

I got that too but didn't notice the 15% off! Definitely more stylish than my cheap plastic wallets in magazine files but I'd need dozens so can't really justify the cost. Tempting though...

(I'm on my second Maker's Workbook - very useful they are).

I just use regular C5 envelopes. Preferably with the opening on the short end.

I know it's sad and pathetic but I am a stationery junkie.  :loveit: :[
My patterns are in shoe boxes and they don't quite fit and it gets on my nerves but it takes all my effort not to rush off and buy proper boxes for them using good fabric money!  :S
That site could put me in the poor house but not one extra stitch would be sewn!  ><
Fashion fades, style is forever!

They're nice, v smart and prof looking.

@wrenkins I too love stationery, all of it, and could easily bankrupt myself with the stuff  :loveit:

I love the idea but too expensive for the amount of traced patterns I own. I use A3 poly wallets.

Great idea, but I’d need even more shelf space put up.
