Welcome to week two of Name That Mustache!

Name That Mustache, Week 1!

Mustachio 2.0

During the Great Sewhooked Revamp of 2013, many of my patterns have undergone updates and all around improvements.

Mustachio! is no exception.

A pattern set including 12 paper pieced mustaches, Mustachio! is one of my more ridiculous designs created for my own amusement.

Hey, if you can’t make stuff that entertains you, then what’s the point, right?!

During the revamp process, I decided these mustaches REALLY need names. I love to name the things I make and am not entirely sure how these guys ended up with monikers Mustache 1, Mustache 2, etc. Boo, that’s no fun!

Mustache!

In an effort to make them more interesting and fun, I came up with some tentative names but quickly realized I could really use some help!

That’s where you come in to help me NAME THAT MUSTACHE!

Name That Mustache is a weekly challenge for my readers throughout the month of October.

The rules are simple:

  • Share a name idea for one or more mustaches in each week’s post, making sure to include the mustache number.
