Two Free Bird Patterns And More

There's a free embroidery pattern of a Twirly Birdy on Craft Blog. I like the way Fern stitched the bird's outline with two colors of floss [link via Needlework News at Craft Gossip].

The Twirly Birdy made me think of last year's bird pattern on Craft Pudding.

It's not a bird but here's a cute pincushion tutorial also from Craft Blog. Once upon a time I used to save empty toilet paper rolls because you never knew when we would need them for a preschool art project. The weird thing is I still save them now even though I haven't taught preschool for a couple of years.

I was going to ask if anyone knew of an ideas for covering a three ring binder. I have several that I use for holding my stash of embroidery and cross stitch patterns. Two are red and two are dark blue and I would really like to cover them up and make them look pretty. Thanks to Craft, here's a tutorial for sewing a binder cover from Lola...again! Too bad I don't sew. And, Apron People: check out Lola's cute aprons for inspiration.
