Kitchen Aid Cover

I bought my Kitchen Aid stand mixer when the only colors available were white and blue.  It was just a few months later that a bunch of cool colors started becoming available.  But at the time, I thought, Wow – blue!  So that’s the one I got.

Fast forward 10 years and everything in my kitchen is red.  Windows, fiestaware, chopping board, yes, even the dishrags.  What’s a girl to do?  Make a Kitchen Aid cover, that’s what.

I SOOOO wish I could say that I came up with this myself.  But alas, I did not.  This pattern is from my friend Cindy and is available in here.  Fabric is Fifties Kitchen by Michael Miller – perfect for this project.

  1. I looooove it! I have a table runner and placemats in that same fabric, and just bought some more to do some other things (cloth napkins maybe). I have red fiesta ware too! That fabric goes so well with it.

  2. I love it – that fabric is so cool – I will have to check it out. My White Mixmaster matches my kitchen but I am sure it could be enhanced by a great cover.

  3. Wonderful! Pure genius! my kitchen is blue and white but slowly there are a few Laura Ashley red and cream things creeping in. I may end up redecorating.

  4. What an awesome cover, Linda! I love it!!! (I like red in the kitchen, too–my new stand mixer is red, fire engine red.)

  5. And the Fiesta bowl looks great next to it (I have a mix of colors and it’s a bit addictive).

    My Kitchen Aid is boring white, and of course now they have kiwi and orange. I guess it’s for the best that I already have one — how could I decide??

  6. Thanks for the link to the great pattern. I have a gun metal grey kitchen aid and even though I love the colour it really needs a cover to keep it from getting kitchen muck all over it!

  7. What a lovely idea. I have the same size and color Kitchen Aid. I got it when I think I was in 6th grade (I was the nerdy kid who loved to bake). I wish I had known they would come out with such fab colors–I love the pistachio green that came out a couple of years ago. Still, I love my mixer and I will run it into the ground. But maybe a cute cover will up its aesthetic appeal.

  8. AWESOME! I love it!

    I got my Kitchenaid when my mother passed away, 17 years ago, and she got it when the ONLY color was white. And it still runs like a dream but it’s butt-ugly. You’ve given me hope. 🙂 Thanks!

  9. Hi!! Love the blue kitchen aid it would be hard for me to cover since blue is absolutely my favorite color!!!! That fabric is so fantastic I might have to brake my no buying fabric rule for this month and get me some:)

  11. I’ve been reading your blog for a little bit now but I’ve been too busy (with a move across the country to comment) but I just couldn’t resist taking a minute to comment on this post! I think that is great! I also can’t draw but like to trace and color and that looks like the best tool ever! You could make some really cool drawings with that!

  12. I MUST have this pattern! I, too, have a stand mixer in a color that I chose when I was – let’s just say – much younger. I almost wish those darn things weren’t so indestructible! Thanks for your wonderful blog.

  13. I wonder how many patterns you’ve sold for your friend via your blog? 🙂 I just ordered my first Kitchen-Aid mixer (been agonizing over exactly which one to get for months now), and I also ordered the cover pattern. I have no idea yet what fabric I’ll use for mine, but I have friends who’ll be getting a Looney Tunes cover for theirs! Another friend would appreciate the same fabric you used, I think…I’ll have to see what I can find.

  14. Hi! Stumbled upon your blog as I am looking for Kitchenaid mixer cover patterns. Unfortunately the link you gave is no longer available, I think? Any chance you can send to me or point to where I can get it? Thanks! 😀
