    You are so smart, what a wonderful idea. I don't like to cut up my patterns either. I have learned the hard way by buying patterns for the second time when I need to do a favorite. Thanks for sharing.

    Back in the 1970's I did the same thing with dry cleaner bags. I even fused two fabrics together with it. You can also use paper towel as a pressing sheet--the plastic that is peeping out of the sandwich will stick to it and can be thrown away without getting your iron sticky.

    I use dollar tree white tall kitchen trash bags. Any plastic bag will do. White makes the paper translucent.
