An Idea for Pattern Organization--To Follow You Everywhere!

I created a way to keep a visual record of all my patterns by taking a digital pic of each one (front of envelope and back of envelope) and then putting them into folders in my 'Pictures' folder by the pattern manufacturer.  Then, after taking the pictures, I would sync the folder with my iPod Touch so I could take my inventory anywhere, such as to the local Jo-Ann store.  I have so many patterns that I forget which ones I have and don't want to buy duplicates.  It was time consuming to create it--and it's on-going for future patterns I purchase, but was well worth the time spent.

Hi Leslie, I love your idea. It takes time to do it, but worth it. Thanks for the tip!
