NAME THAT PATTERN - Spring 2014 Edition!

Friends throughout the world, it's time once again to play the sewing blogosphere's favorite pattern-naming game, NAME THAT PATTERN!

I've chosen a rare group of highly collectable patterns on the Internet.  (Please note: These are NOT in my possession so I cannot send them to you no matter how badly you may want them.  They can be purchased on Etsy for a song, however.)

The rules are simple: I post a pattern, you give it a name.  We have some amazing prizes in store for our winner, including a six-month supply of Singer sewing machine oil!

All right, contestants, on your mark, get set....NAME THAT PATTERN!

Here's Pattern #1!


Next up, Pattern #2!

Still with us?  Give a warm welcome to Pattern #3!

If you lived through the Eighties, you may remember Pattern #4!

Finally, we wind down with Pattern #5!


BUT WAIT: We have a special (ADULTS ONLY) bonus pattern for our overachievers: Pattern #6!

Friends, I hope you've enjoyed this edition of NAME THAT PATTERN.

As always, to be eligible for our grand prize, you must name all the above patterns.  If you can only name one or two, however, please do -- we could all use the laughs.

I'll be playing too, of course, and so will Michael (or else).
