My mother was hounding me to make a cover for my daughter's Kitchen Aid mixer as she has a new kitchen. I don't sew 3D real well, so I was hesitant. I found a nice and free pattern online http://sewing.about.com/od/homedecprojects/ss/Free-Pattern-And-Directions-To-Sew-Your-Own-Stand-Mixer-Or-Blender-Cover.htm#step1and used some special fabric I was saving. It will match her granite top. I made a lining for it and checked the sizing with that. I did not use a piping (too tough for me). Then, I sewed it all together. By using a lining, I did not have to put bias tape on the bottom. I am showing it here on my sewing machine, as I am a quilter and not a baker. She took it home with her and hopefully, she will like it. UPDATE: Daughter has the PROfessional Kitchen Aid which is three inches taller than the normal ones, so it doesn't fit. Guess who has to do it all over again.
