Yum-Yum Apple Bib - Zakka Along 2.0:: Patchwork, Please!

At last I've managed to finish my Yum-Yum Apple Bib, straight from Ayumi Takahashi's book Patchwork, Please:

I had some fun apple fabric in my stash and I also had this larger scale apple fabric:

So I cut out four apples from this and sandwiched each strap end into two apples. I stitched over the stem with brown thread to make it stand out.
This is the fabric I used for the back:

The only problem I had was with the leaf: the first time I forgot I was supposed to cut the back of the leaf and tried turning it from the side, the second time I made it right but decided it was too small. The third and last time I was, at last, satisfied with the result. I added some batting inside to make the leaf stand out a bit more. Do these things just happen to me?!

I now have to test it with my 18 month old daughter!!!

P.S. Don't miss our two part giveaway to celebrate our 100th Blog Post:.
