    Even if you can find a ready-made mixer cover or blender cover, are you going to find one to match your kitchen? This mixer and blender cover pattern is designed for full-size appliances but appliances do vary in size. If you are not sure about the size of your appliance, make a quick cover out of muslin or unwanted fabric, without doing the piping and bias tape, to test the size.

    Keeping your stand mixer and blender covered between uses keeps it clean and dust free so it's ready when you...MORE want to use it. Make your own small appliance covers and curtains to match.

    Consider adding a pocket inside the cover for instruction manuals or embellishing the covers with one of the many free machine embroidery designs or using appliques.

    Needed Materials

    • 2/3 of a yard of 45" wide fabric - For this cover I quilted a cotton calico, using natural cotton batting. Buy extra curtain fabric and Quilt Your Own Fabric to have all your fabrics coordinate in your kitchen. Experiment with fabric embellishment techniques to obtain the look you want for your home. For a stiffer cover, you may want to experiment with fusible interfacing.
    • Piping - 1 pkg. of Wrights® Maxi Piping or Your Own Piping 
    • Double Fold Bias Tape - 1 pkg of Wrights® Bias Tape Extra Wide Double Fold.
    • Pattern in PDF Format - Be sure to follow the directions on the pattern to make the completed pattern piece for the cover you are making.
    • Matching Thread - for this construction, matching the thread to the piping and bias tape will allow top stitching and seams to blend in.

    • Find the center top of the rounded end sections. This will be the center line at the top of the pieces.
    • Match the center of the long section of fabric with the center marking on the rounded pieces.
    • Sew the sections together from the top to the bottom edges, using a 1/2" seam allowance, overlapping a couple of stitches at the top to lock the stitching.
    • Repeat for both ends of the cover.
    • Apply a seam finish to prevent fraying when you launder the cover. 
    • Trim off any uneven edges if necessary....MORE Zigzag the edges to hold the layers in place will assist you to apply the bias tape and will be hidden under the bias tape.
