Living in a small home, my stand mixer has to be left out on the counter. To make it sort of blend in, I made a cover out of a towel.
Approximate Time: 10 minutes
There are several ways to do this.
Fold a towel end to end and sew down both ends making a pillow case to slip down over your mixer. It is that simple.
Another way - Lay two small hand towels wrong sides together and stitch down one end, across the long side and back down the other short end. You have now quickly made a cover for your stand mixer.
Make sure to measure your mixer before you purchase your towels to make sure they are big enough and then decide which way you want to go.
You might want to use a small bath towel, fold it in half end to end and cut off the extra. Then just sew the two open edges. Save the extra and make a potholder by folding it over several times and sewing around the edges.
Could easily be hand sewn.

To keep small appliances covered, when not plugged in, use kitchen towels pinned together with safety pins to form a cover. Place the pins under the towels so they are hidden.
You can save money by making your own small kitchen appliance covers. I use vinyl table covers to make sturdy, wipe clean small kitchen appliance covers.

Does anyone have patterns for making the covers for small kitchen appliances like the toaster, blender, etc.?
