these ideas might be helpful. Have you thought of a gift idea for your mom for Mother’s Day yet? Check out this collection of DIY Mother's day gifts anyone can make (flowers and florals, you're welcome!) Let me know which one is your favorite!
And just a heads-up, I will not be sending out my newsletter next week. I plan to spend some time with my family. Our two kids are growing so fast and I'd really want to freeze time for a while! A good family vacation can do just that :) I'm not telling you yet where (it's my favorite place under the sun but shhh!) but I promise to post a few photos from there. So if you're interested about my behind-the-scenes life that will never make it into a blog post, follow me on Instagram (here). You might find out a lot about me on 'stories'!
So, have a great week, this AND next one, take a break from AppleGreen Cottage - unless you want to check out the Archives section below - and see you then in two weeks!
Until next time,

Here's a step-by-step tutorial for making a totally easy rolled felt flower. There are many ways to make felt flowers, but this time, I'd like to show you the EASIEST and QUICKEST method. Really, it's one of the easiest things you can make out of felt scraps.
All you need is a scrap piece of felt and 10 minutes of your time. Let's start!
During the last weeks, people have been downloading this FREE pattern from my Craftsy store like ...a lot.
I have no idea what causes the burst of downloads, but I thought I'd alert you to get this easy, pocket-size DIY marble maze pattern to make a toy for kids. It's a quick-sew and a great scrap buster. Not to mention that you'll make a kid or two really happy, as this might be just what they need to occupy themselves on a road trip. Get your free pattern here.
