Directions

All seams are 1/4"


1. Create Side-Top-Side Piece

Cut one long piece of fabric, measuring 38" x 16.5". This one piece will make up the two sides and top (it will go up one side, across the top, and down the other side). If you are NOT adding quilt blocks to the side panels, you are now finished with this piece.

mixer cover pattern Side Quilt Block: If you wish to add a quilt block to one or both sides, make the quilt block(s) at this time. Mark the side-top-side piece 16" from each end. This designates the area of the two sides and helps with block placement. A block can be any size from 4" sqare to 8" square.

Cut one long piece of fabric, measuring 38" x 16.5". This one piece will make up the two sides and top (it will go up one side, across the top, and down the other side). If you are NOT adding quilt blocks to the side panels, you are now finished with this piece.

2. Create Front / Back

fabrics Tape the pattern pieces together (A, B C & D) to create a pattern piece for the front/back.

Back: Cut fabric for the back. Set aside.


cut front pieces Front: cut a rectangular piece measuring 15" x 15". Using a rotary cutter and straight edge, cut two horizontal lines through the fabric. They do not have to be parallel. Refer to the image on the right. Stitch a strip of fabric into each of the cuts. Your strip can be any width you like. I cut my strips to be 1.5" wide. With seam allowances of 1/4", my finished strip measured 1" wide. If you wish, you can also add cuts in the opposite direction.


finished front Once you have created your "spliced fabric", lay the front/back pattern piece over your pieced fabric; cut out the front piece. NOTE: I actually spliced in a fabric that had slightly larger chili peppers for my center.


3. Stitch Front To Main Body Piece

4. Stitch Back To Main Body Piece

pin mixer cover together Pin and stitch your back piece to the main body piece in the same way you did the front. It will be stitched to the opposite side of the main body piece.

Your outer covering piece is now complete. The photo is of my easy mixer cover, pinned together, inside out.


5. Create Padding & Lining Pieces

The padding is not totally necessary, but I find that a layer of fusible fleece (or batting) between the lining and outer fabric adds nice body to my kitchenaid mixer cover,

Use the pattern for the front/back to cut two pieces from the felt and two pieces from the lining fabric. Cut one 38" x 16.5" rectangular piece from the felt, and one one 38" x 16.5" rectangular piece from the lining.

Stitch the felt pieces together in the same way you assembled the outer covering. Repeat with the lining. You now have three coverings: one made from the outer fabric, one made from felt, and one made from the lining. Layer them in the following steps, and tack them together in several places (or use pins):

1.   Turn the outside layer right side out.
2.  Place the felt layer up inside the outer layer.
3.  Turn the lining layer inside out and insert it up into the mixer cover. In other words, the wrong side of the lining will face the felt layer. This way, your cover will finished nicely inside and out.

Use hand quilting or machine quilting in several places to hold the three layers together (or just stitch the three layers together at the seams in a few places).

Place your new cover onto your mixer. Trim the bottom edge as needed. Add binding to the bottom of the covering.
