Name Help for new Up-Cycle T’ Knit Top Pattern

I’m deep into ‘tender up-cycling’ of family garments into tops I can wear. This shirt was one of my mom’s favorites. See my ‘Memento T’ on a purchased raspberry T-Shirt.  I’ve convinced myself that my design and sewing/embellishment techniques can add to this genre of sewing…so I’ve decided to make it all into a new Talking Pattern.™   While there are many variables to this type of sewing, complete directions will be included for at least 3 garments that are easily ‘duplicated’ with a purchased T and Fabric.  Other versions will have less complete directions, but lots of photos for inspiration.  At this writing, I’ve created 14 tops of this nature…..

BUT – I need your HELP giving it a name!!!  i DO want to include the word ‘Up-Cycle’ in the title, and something about remembrances – I like the word ‘Memento’.

Comment and Share to spread the word of this CONTEST.  IF I select your suggestion, I will thank you with a pattern AND my personal assistance (given photos) of a design for YOUR Memento UpCycle T!   DEADLINE:  June 8, 2015

Pre-order Printed Pattern HERE ($15)     Pre-order PDF Electronic Version Pattern HERE  ($12)   Publish Date Goal:  No later than July 15, 2015.
