My sewing pattern collection was starting to take over my apartment. I have a small one bedroom apartment and any clutter make it look like a big mess. This is how my pattern collection looked earlier today.
To help me get organized I bought two carbon boxes from the store Granit. Granit have storage boxes of many sizes and styles to choose from but I chose these ones as they will accommodate even the largest patterns I have. These boxes cost 99 SEK each and measure 23x30x27 cm, allow me to store even the larger Vogue patterns standing. Apart from using them in sewing I view my patterns as collectables that inspire and tell a story and I want to take care of them as well as I can. For this purpose I found some plastic covers to store the pattern envelopes in. However the store closest to me only had one pack of 5 plastic covers left, so I have to find some more at a later stage.
And here is the final result after having gotten the patterns organized by brand. As you can see, still some room to grow the collection.
