INSIDE: How to make your own swim and beach shirts using freezer paper. Free downloadable templates.
If the kids are out for the summer then it means that swim team season is upon us. As a swimmer myself, there’s something enjoyable about sitting poolside while watching kids hang off the lane lines, swim zig zags down the pool or come up from a dive with goggles ajar and swim shorts taking on water. Oh, the fun of being a Swim Mom.
Given my role as the carrier of wet bags and swim meet chauffeur, I might as well have a t-shirt that says so! Grab a cute tank and a roll of freezer paper…and stay dry.
