We’re moving out of the kitchen and on to a project for the kiddos this week with the Yum Yum Apple Bib.    And a bonus, you have no where to head to today because it’s my stop on the sew along! 🙂   I didn’t want to get confusing with too many posts, so everything is included below.  Sorry for the looong post!

The prize for this week’s project includes (1) package Pellon® 805R Wonder-Under®, a $25 GC to Form&Fabric, and a $30 GC to Stash Modern.

Phew, let’s get to the bib!

I don’t have any babies living at my house these days but I still really enjoyed making the Yum Yum Apple Bib.

It’s quirky, adorable and functional and truly looks like something you’d buy at a boutique shop!   I can’t wait until my nephew is big enough to wear it.

On mine I decided to increase the absorbency by adding a layer of batting in the middle.    When my kids were little they soaked through thin bibs and ended up with wet clothes so I think the extra layer helps.   I went ahead and appliquéd my seeds before sandwiching with the backing so that the stitching did not show on the reverse.

(This picture is after making the sandwich and cutting out my apple shape.)

I also used Vinyl Fuse on the backing fabric so that nothing could leak through.    (I have seen some struggles with using the Vinyl Fuse, but I  absolutely love it.  You really have to be patient and iron well to make sure the fuse is secure.)

The project goes together quite fast with the most time spent on the binding.   The bib is finished with bias binding and if you are new to using it, make sure not to pull too tight as you go around the curves.   It’s okay for the binding to appear ruffled as you’re sewing.  This is making room for it to ease over the curves and fit snugly.

I love the details in a project and the seeds and leaf are the icing on the cake!   I decided mine needed a stem too. 🙂

If you don’t have a need for a bib, this would be a cute potholder without the ties.  I think I see a red apple potholder in my future!

Have fun sewing this week and be sure to leave a comment on the post to enter my giveaway.

I have 5 sample packs of Aurifil thread, 1 mini fabric pack with sewing stickers from Form&Fabric and a Pellon interfacing/batting charm pack to offer.   I’ll choose 7 winners on Friday July 12th!
