About AppleGreen Cottage

Hi! Do you love free sewing, DIY and crafting tutorials  
both for you and your kids?

Then you'll feel right at home here!

Feel free to search through my free SEWING tutorials (and free patterns), easy DIY how-tos and ideas for CRAFTING with kids. But do you want to know what my readers say it's the VERY BEST stuff at AppleGreen Cottage? It's this:

I'm kind of nuts about easy sewing projects. No wonder! I knew how to sew BEFORE I knew how to read and write, and loved it so much! I sneaked behind my grandmom's back to start using her precious Singer machine. Still remember when I broke a needle, pulling really hard on a piece of cotton when I was attempting to sew a softie for the first time. Thanks, grandma, for not being angry - and for explaining to me that we didn't need to buy a whole new sewing machine because of that! (I really was sure it was THE end for the machine. Pheeew!)

So I grew up into a craft-loving sewing amateur, and mom to a 4-year old boy and a baby girl - and a DIY wannabe who just recently realized she has surrounded herself with an unreasonable amount of apple green color, sometimes happily spilling over into these pages. That's how the blog got its name, anyway. Feel free to contact me: damjana@applegreencottage.com. I love your emails and respond to each and every one!

So back to sewing:... tons of sewing tutorials here. All for you. Get a cup of coffee, stay a while and help yourself to a free pattern or two, and have fun. I hope some of the tutorials will be useful to you too ;) Happy to see you here, enjoy!
