I tend to collect patterns for cute girls dresses, fun pillows, quilts of course. I keep them in the back of my mind for sales but I feel funny about taking a pattern to a store, especially when it's the store that I bought the pattern at. Then, voila! Lightbulb! I do have a digital camera right?
So now I take a digital picture of the requirements for a pattern and I can access it at the store easily without worrying about the pattern!
