Knitting Pattern Binder

One of my goals for this year was to get more organized, to have a place for everything and have everything in it’s place. Up to now my knitting patterns have been kept in several places, a folder on the shelf, a stack on the end table by the chair. When my mom surprised me with this binder, I knew exactly what I would use it for. She had the binder cover made with one of my Great Grandmother’s tablecloths and I absolutely adore it. It is perfect for storing my patterns all in one place, a front pocket for colourbooks and yarncards, even a little slot for a pencil or pen.Now all of my patterns are tucked away in this beautiful binder and it only take me a couple of seconds to find what I am looking for. Next, I need to go through my sewing patterns and figure out which ones I want to keep and find a great way to store them as well. This is what I really love, a beautiful, yet functional item that makes me smile every time I use it, thanks Mom! Have a great weekend everybody!

    What a beautiful and useful gift and great history too! Sounds like your sorting out is going well – I dream of when I get to the point where I can sort out my patterns! LOL

    I agree- what a great gift. Sadly it wouldn’t work for me… I have so many patterns I now keep them in vintage suitcases. I think the earliest I have is from about 1912!

    you know what…. this is a GREAT idea. I have my patterns scribbled on a piece of paper, all over the place. I fond them here, I find them there…. this beautiful binder may be my next venture. thanks for the inspiration.

    I just found your blog via D2E forum. Glad I did!

    I have a binder for just about everything. I have a food binder, a house binder, a future dreams binder, a holiday binder, a pregnancy binder, and a baby binder (that is in the works, he is still about 5 weeks out). Makes it easy to grab the binder to take where ever — in the car, bathtub, to the couch, lazy-boy chair….

    I also tend to use lots of sheet protectors in my binders, saves torn pages at the holes. But, normal dividers don’t work with sheet protectors, I got some stick-on dividers (they are also moveable, and restickable). Love them.
