Zakka 2.0 Sew Along: Yum-Yum Apple Bib

Patchwork, Please! is filled with the kind of super cute projects that Ayumi Takahashi is known for, and this adorable bib is no exception. For such a small object, this bib sure gave me a heap of trouble. First, I quilted the apple body without completing the intended embroidery, so I had to embroider the seeds rather awkwardly.
I very carefully cut and sewed double-fold binding tape, but could not for the life of me figure out how to neatly transition the binding into straps. Perhaps I should have used single-fold bias tape, but I’m so accustomed to using the double-fold variety that I didn’t even think twice about it. I’ll have to try that next time, as this charming bib would be perfect for gift giving.

  1. When I made this, I didn't use the straps (I made hot pads), so I can't comment on that part at all, but using the single fold binding was surprisingly easy and it was my first time using it too!

    Anyway, I love the fabrics you put together for this.
