Friends, I came this close to forgetting that today, June 22nd is National Onion Rings Day. Now I must be honest: I rarely eat onion rings, subscribing as I do to the adage (attributed to Kate Moss) that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels. But if I were to eat onion rings, this is the day I'd be eating them and I'd even share mine with you!
In celebration of this very important holiday, I can think of no better ritual than another round of the sewing blogosphere's favorite pattern-naming game, MPB's exclusive, Name That Pattern!
The rules of Name that Pattern are simple: I post photos of patterns I've found online (generally NOT from my pattern stash, mind you), and you give them funny names. As always, we have lots of exciting prizes, including a priceless vintage Singer sewing machine!
Without further delay, let's get started.
Here's Pattern #1!
Not sweet enough? Here's Pattern #2!
But there's more: say bonjour (or is it hola?) to Pattern #3!
Now something for the boys: Pattern #4!
Finally, a rare beauty, Pattern #5!
But wait, that's not all: we also have a bonus pattern for those who just can't get enough. Put your hands together for Pattern #6!
Readers, thank you very much for participating in this very special edition of Name That Pattern. As always, you can name only some of the patterns or all of them. Only those of you providing names for all-of-the-above, however, will be eligible for our vintage Singer sewing machine.
I'll be playing along, as well as anyone else in my household I can coerce.
I'm a native New Yorker and sewing fanatic! I started sewing in 2009 and today make all my own clothes using vintage sewing machines and vintage patterns, in addition to sewing for private clients. Welcome to the warm and whimsical world of Male Pattern Boldness, where the conversation is sewing, style, fashion, fabric, and more!
