Assemble the Pattern
Download and print the pattern pieces:
Be sure to print the pieces at 100% so that the 1-inch box measures accurately. A small difference in size won't affect the cover too much, but it's best to have the pattern as close to full size as possible.
Tape the four pieces together. Set the heart template aside.Continue to 4 of 11 below.

Attach the Heart Applique Pieces
Fold one of the 5.5 x 16.5" rectangles in half and make a small crease to mark the middle. Place the first heart on the center crease 1" from the top. Evenly space a total of five hearts so they are also 1" from the top.
Iron the hearts in place. Repeat with the other 5.5 x 16.5" rectangle and the five remaining hearts. Sew around each other hearts about 1/8" from the raw edge.Continue to 7 of 11 below.

Sew the Ends to the Sides
Pin the outside ends to the patchwork sides with wrong sides together. Fold the ends and the sides to find the top center, matching the centers and starting the pinning here.
Continue pinning down the sides. Repeat for the other end, and then repeat with the lining pieces.
The sides most likely will come out longer than the ends. This is to allow for small differences in seam allowances and pattern scaling. Sew around the ends on both the outside and the lining. Use the rotary cutter to trim the excess fabric from the sides.Continue to 9 of 11 below.

Adjusting the Pattern to Fit Other Appliances
This pattern is the perfect size for a Kitchen Aid, but it fits most stand mixers. If you're concerned about the fit, hold the end pattern piece up to the front of your mixer to see if you need to adjust the size.
You can use this same pattern to make a blender cover by making the side panels narrower.
If you trim the bottom of the end pattern to make it shorter, this pattern also works as a sewing machine cover.
