Has anyone seen my pattern?

Actually, the real reason I haven't made anything is because I was going to make the Kyoko dress by Modkid and I cut the pattern out on my fabric, I have the pattern pieces, but I can't find the instruction booklet!  What the hell did I do with it.  I swear, when things get lost within the perimeter of my own house and I can't find them it makes me want to drive myself to the loony house.

So, I've narrowed down the possibilities of where it can be: 1) It got lost in the shuffle of one of my purses as I am constantly switching the contents of one purse to another in a futile effort to be fashionable; 2) one of the house midgets took it and used it for a craft project, coloring on it, glue-ing it, and cutting it into a million pieces, 3) it is exactly where it should be; I just can't see it as my eyes are stupefied and blinded at the site of organization.

What to do!?  I need it. 
It's for my niece's fourth birthday next week. 
I have no Plan B.

So I still can't find the instruction booklet. My latest theory is that a 2-year-old fanatical environmentalist in my house decided to throw it in the recycle bin. I decided to try e-mailing Patty Young about my problem and much to my surprise she was able to help me! She offered to mail me a copy of the instructions. It made me so happy to read that in my e-mail this morning and to know that there a such nice people out there.


  1. I feel your pain! I lost my small thread snips for weeks and eventually realized that a three-year-old munchkin had hidden them in my carry-on bag in my closet!d Hope you find that instruction book!

  2. Hmm, I'll try looking there in my closet.
    It never ends -- we just got back from the library and the 2-year-old was emptying his backpack of books and then I see that he takes out my bank debit card from the front pocket!

  3. Hmm, i'm not a sewer so i'm hoping you can find it, as it's a gorgeous design! Good luck. I hope you find it!
