Happened to me, too...specifically the Booga Bag. I got the pattern when she was offering it free...but I guess later on she changed her mind and wanted to make a little money on it. Can't say I blame her...but I was glad I got the pattern in the freebie days.
It wasn't a pdf pattern cuz it's in my documents as a Word doc. I cut/pasted the pattern directions and photos from her website, which was linked from Rav.
I don't need to
PAY FOR the pattern.
But it isn't in my Rav library. But I can send the Word doc to my Google Drive (cloud). From there I can access the pattern from any device I own. Yay.
I have 296 patterns in my (free) Google Drive. I love the Cloud! All my patterns, accessible from any smartphone, any tablet, any laptop I own! Immediate. Mostly my patterns are pdf, but I also have a dozen or so patterns on Word. Easy-peasy.
