I always have a few patterns lying on top of the chest of drawers, for inspiration; these are projects I’m hoping to tackle soon, or at least don’t want to forget about ;).
In the top drawer are my Simplicity (left) and New Look (right) patterns. As in the whole chest, everything is sorted by number, in ascending order.
On the left stand the smaller Vogue envelopes, with my (very few) Buttericks behind them; on the right lie the larger Vogue envelopes, with two or three craft patterns (hats, aprons) in the small space that’s left behind them.
The bottom drawer holds patterns from independent companies, vintage patterns, and McCall’s:
On the right are my McCalls and vintage patterns. The size of the Hot Patterns envelopes don’t allow these smaller patterns to stand full-front as in the higher drawers, so these are lying sideways.
Seeing Kristy’s own chest of drawers, I now wish I’d chosen the bigger size as well, as mine is about to burst at the seams! I have a bit of room left for New Look/Simplicity or Vogue patterns, but not much 🙂
I love the fact that the fronts of the drawers are transparent: being able to peek at what’s nestling in there always makes me smile.
