Check this off both my Handmade Christmas list AND my Winter Sewing Goals list! I finally (FINALLY) made a cover for my brother's mixer. He asked for one ages ago and I kind of procrastinated because circles are not always my friend. Anyway, here it is Christmas so it was time to get a move on. What do you think?
I just love this line from Monaluna. I just hope its not too girly. His kitchen is light yellow and his pantry red and white. I looked all over for red and white fabric that I liked, but I continually returned to this Monaluna goodness. Oh, just go with the inspiration that is moving you.... This will still be OK in a red and white pantry, I think.
Now, I wanted a fabric with retro mixers or cupcakes all over it, but he wanted me to tone it down. Anyway, Monaluna also has this fab woodland print that I love. He's a big hiker, so this seemed just perfect! But it was EXACTLY what he asked me not to do. So, it's the lining now and the entire thing is reversable. I hope he flips it every now and then to get a little show of this fabric too.
Here's hoping he likes it :)
If you want to make one of your own, I used this tutorial as a guide and then kind of made it up as I went along.
