This is the second installment of my Mario Granny Square collection. You can find a pattern for the Mario Bomb square HERE. Mario is a timeless video game that always makes me feel nostalgic. I am designing a collection of Mario themed granny squares so I can make my baby a Mario blanket and share that good feeling with her. Video games have come a long way since then and not necessarily in a good way, but it’s nice to know that the classics will always be the classics. Feel free to use this free pattern in whatever way you see fit just link back to me in any sales you make of your finished product or if you post any pictures of what you made! I hope to see lots of blankets and maybe someone could even tackle a messenger bag! Wouldn’t that be cute? 🙂
