    Lakeside Cover Up…. free pattern

    It’s official… summer is here to stay. It was in the 80s today and I can already tell I’m going to die this summer.

I have teamed up with Michelle Ferguson over at Two Brothers Blankets and am her guest blogger for the month of June. I designed a swimsuit cover up that is perfect to throw around your waist when you’re spending the day at the lake or pool.

    Grab-N-Go Tic Tac Toe

    This is my first (and maybe only) free pattern by me, Manda. I was looking at all the cool tic tac toe bags that everyone was posting for Valentine’s Day and I just couldn’t find one that I liked well enough so I decided to make my own.

It’s great to pull out when you are at the Dr office waiting to be called back, waiting for your food at a restaurant, in the car on a trip or just waiting for someone to…
