It's time to play...NAME THAT PATTERN!

Readers, I am SO excited!

Once again, it's time to play the sewing blogosphere's favorite game -- Name That Pattern!

The rules are simple.  I post a photo of a pattern I've found online, and you give it a funny name.  Can it get any simpler than that?

As you no doubt remember from past rounds, the competition is stiff.  Today's winner will be invited to participate in our celebrity finals, and be eligible for some fantastic prizes including a two week, all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii!!

Are you ready to play?

In keeping with the season and our upcoming MPB Sew-Along, today's theme is HALLOWEEN!

OK, let's get started.

Here's PATTERN #1

 (My answer: My mommy sews and all I got was this lousy Super Girl costume)

Put on your thinking caps, because here's PATTERN #2!

(My answer: Can't. Breathe -- Box... On... Head...)

And now something for you pet lovers -- PATTERN #3!

(My answer:  Follow the Yellow Pee Road!)

We're not done yet, folks!  Here comes PATTERN #4!

(My answer: Honey, I Shrunk Carrie Fisher!)

But wait, there's more -- PATTERN #5!

 My answer: "How the h-e-double-hockey sticks do I walk in this thing?"

And now, our BONUS pattern -- PATTERN #6!!!

 (My answer: Strictly for tater tots.)

EXTRA BONUS QUESTION: Who is the lady whose photo I've posted up top?

Friends, Michael may be contributing answers later in the day but please don't let that discourage you: he is disqualified from winning -- no matter what he may say!
