Nov 17, 2014


Friends, I am delighted to announce the latest version of MPB's exclusive pattern-naming game: NAME THAT PATTERN, 100% Gluten-Free.  Now you can indulge in the revelry without worry of tummy upset.  Bean-based, it's more digestible and more nutritious too!  

The rules are simple: I post photographs of patterns I've found online, and you give them names.  We have some incredible prizes lined up, including a year's supply of waxed dental floss from Rite Aid Pharmacy!

Without further delay, let's get started.

Introducing Pattern #1!

Can't be topped?  Oh, yes it can: here's Pattern #2!

But wait, there's more: Pattern #3!

Moving right along, it's Pattern #4.

Finally, a highly collectable gem:  Pattern #5!

But wait, as you know, there's a BONUS PATTERN, for those who like an extra challenge.  Feast your eyes on Pattern #6!

Friends, I hope you've enjoyed this special gluten-free edition of NAME THAT PATTERN.  Reminder: you can provide names for all the above patterns, or any combination you choose.   To be eligible for the floss, however, you must complete all six.

On your marks, get set, NAME THAT PATTERN!

  6. I sewed a lot in my high school years in the late sixties. Almost every time you do a "name that pattern" I see a pattern I sewed. This time it is pattern #4. I made my poncho in a plaid, too. I wore it often with jeans and with skirts. And, yes, I did own fishnet stockings and a pair of white go-go boots. I was a fashionista. I get a smile from looking at these old patterns.
