KitchenAid Mixer Cover Using a Tutorial from Carla at My Half Dozen Daily
I have followed Carla's blog at My Half Dozen Daily for a few years. She is such an inspiration. The lady can budget, cook and sew like nobody's business.
I made this using her mixer tutorial. It was easier than I imagined it would be. I added jumbo ric rac not knowing if it would really work out or not. It fit perfectly into the bias trim that I made with 2 inch strips. The bias helped to keep the ric rac straight. I then sewed on top of the ric rac, clase to the edge with orange thread to keep if from curling up over time. You can see I have a blue countertop and orange walls, so I thought the fabrics were a nice choice. They are DS Quilts from Joann fabrics.
If you don't follow Carla's blog, you really should. She is such an inspiration to me!
