NAME THAT PATTERN -- Happy Birthday, Luke Perry Edition!

Readers, I know as well as you do that former teen idol and star of Beverly Hills 90210, Luke Perry's birthday was actually yesterday, October 11th, but I still think it's not too late to celebrate this beloved actor's 49th.

I know what you're thinking: "How could Luke Perry be 49?  That must make me...."

Don't even go there.  We're going to celebrate today by playing another round of the Internet's favorite sewing pattern-naming game, MPB's exclusive NAME THAT PATTERN!

You already know how it's played: I post photos of patterns I've found online and you give them funny names.  Simple, right?  As always, we have some amazing prizes in store, including an autographed 8 x 10 glossy of Luke Perry's Hollywood dermatologist!

Without further delay, let's get started.  Here's Pattern #1!

A drum roll, please, for very, very vintage Pattern #2!

You ain't seen nothin' yet: here's Pattern #3!

But wait -- there's more!  Put your hands together for Pattern #4!

Finally, a true classic:  Pattern #5

As always, friends, we have our BONUS PATTERN for those seeking extra credit.  Here's Pattern #6!

Beloved MPB readers, Luke Perry fans, and 90210 obsessives, I hope you've enjoyed playing this very special edition of NAME THAT PATTERN.  As always, I'll be playing along, as well as anybody else in my household I can coerce.  

Remember: you can name as many patterns as you wish, but only those who name all six patterns will be eligible for our awesome prizes.

On your marks, get set, NAME THAT PATTERN!
