You know how you have to pull at things at the back of your kitchen counter?
Some are heavy and some have those nice rubber feet on them so they won't budge.
Things like your mixer... coffee maker.... or blender?
I solved this problem for my Kitchenaid Mixer.
I traced the bottom of the mixer on paper to make a pattern and added 1/4" all around, then cut it out.
The pattern measured about 8-1/2" x 13-1/2" wide.
Then I sandwiched two pieces of fabric, both were 1/4 yd x WOF,
with batting in the middle and quilted the 3 layers.
Then I traced the pattern on the quilted piece and got 3 patterns cut out of the length.
For each pattern I cut one 1-1/4" x WOF of a matching fabric for binding.
I attatched the binding all around using a 1/4" seam.
Then turned it over and sewed the back of the binding down.
Now my mixer fits perfectly in around the binding and glides easily from the back of the counter to the front.
It even looks nice when it's waiting for me too.
Just remember to take it off the mat, set it on those rubber feet before you knead your holiday bread!
