Reversible Kitchenaid Mixer Cover

Sharing is caring!

kitchenaid mixer cover pattern

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll recognize bits and pieces of this project. I made a reversible Kitchenaid mixer cover! It was a birthday gift for a friend -I used this tutorial from Heart of Mary. It was pretty straightforward, I made it more complicated for myself by making my own bias tape for the first time since I couldn’t find any I liked that was premade. It’s a really easy kitchenaid mixer cover pattern to sew.

The fabrics I used were Alison Glass in Sunprint / Grove Green & Hawthorne Threads’ Fawn – Birches in Stone. I really like that this is reversible, because if she doesn’t like one print she can simply flip it over! Assuming that she liked the other one, anyways.The bias tape is made from a Kona cotton that I got at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and I used my Simplicity bias tape maker for the first time. I want to experiment with other methods of making bias tape – I love how soft it turned out but want to know if there is an easier way.

birch tree mixer cover


I love birch trees and birch motifs, so this fabric was a no brainer (and I thought the recipient would like it too, obviously).

handmade mixer cover

It was the first time I’d ordered digitally printed fabric and it felt SO strange out of the package. Almost plastic-y. It washed up to be a lot more normal feeling, but I’m not sure I’d mix it in with non-digital fabric for a quilt.

This fabric feels luxurious and dreamy, I am itching for another excuse to buy more from her line.

quilted mixer cover

I just followed the birch trees for some vertical quilt lines, hoping for an organic/asymmetrical feel.

I made a subtle tag with more of my twill tape off Amazon.

paper pieced coaster diy

I tucked in these coasters, even though they’re not perfect. I used 100% felt for the backing and I think it was just too thick, I should’ve been more patient and ordered wool blend, which I can’t seem to find locally. You can read more about my first foundation paper piecing attempt in this post.

So that’s my set! This was one of those projects that dragged out because of kid interruptions, so I’m so happy it is en route to its home and hope that it’s enjoyed. The nice thing about gifting handmade to people who don’t live nearby is, if she hates it and doesn’t use it.. I’ll never know!

Hi Stephanie, Thanks for sharing the Heart of Mary mini tutorial. Thanks for the tip about following the birch trees. I also purchased fabric with a lattice design and followed it for the quilting design. I made this cover for my Mom but, I like it so much I might make one for myself.

The ads on here is very frustrating. Hard to read your article with them popping up so much.

Hi Mary, those ads are my main source of revenue and how I am able to share so many free patterns & tutorials and still earn a living! Hope you can find what you need elsewhere; they're a necessary evil for my site.
