Magazine holder photos

Anne was very kind and sent pictures of her magazine holders. You can find the directions to sew these on Episode 40 post.

I don't get it. what is the purpose of the magazine holder? I store my magazines in magazines cardboard holders

Ah yes, neat and tidy persons may not need it as much as I do. :-)

There is very little point to the holder/pocket if you don't have magazines with loose pattern sheets. My Burda comes with four loose pattern sheets.

I think the cardboard holders make the magazines and pattern sheets bend out of shape the first six months of a year until the holder is more than half full - this holder/pocket keeps them straight.

The other purpose is to keep the magazine and the pattern sheets close together. This way I can grab the magazine and take it with me to a class or a friend or lend it out without ever worrying about the pattern sheets getting lost.

A third purpuse could be to store the traced patterns with the magazine in a convenient way.

I have several magazines scattered around my sewing piles for various projects - the magazine and pattern sheet is safe and sound in the holder/pocket and no toddler, coffee or slide to the floor will kill it.

It's a matter of personal preference.

I think it is a great idea to keep the magazine and patterns together. I think it is a matter of personal preference. This is just another idea for some to use.
