Step by step tutorial to make a quilted cover for KitchenAid Mixer
Here I traced my pattern on the paper side of a large sheet of freezer paper. The waxy side will be placed on the fabric. I placed pink hatch marks on the pieces so I could match them correctly when sewing back together. Cut the paper teapot out along the black lines.
Place the freezer paper cut outs on your fabric and iron. The pieces should adhere. Cut a 1/2 boarder around the paper pattern. Now, for the magic to happen. Place your pieces back together, one at a time. leaving a stitching space between each one and matching up the pink hash lines. You will have to gently lift up the paper to place the next pattern piece in place. Now sew along that first line you created to connect your first two pieces.
After sewing, gently lift the paper pattern and remove the excess fabric getting as close the the stitching as possible. Paper will re-stick when ironed.
Continue to sew and trim until all pieces are matched.
Now for the background. I placed my completed teapot on top of my background fabric and placed the background freezer paper around the teapot making sure to match the pink hash tags. I lightly ironed the pattern to reattach the paper.
Sew around the teapot and clip the excess fabric down. Make sure to sew around the inside handle making sure not to cut the background fabric as your trimming.
Almost done! Take off the paper pattern. Pick out any small papers that got caught in your stitches.
Give it a final trim and we’re now ready to get out all those pretty colored threads to satin stitch around the raw edges.
The flower is five pieces, stem, 2 leaves, white flower and round middle. I glued them on with Elmer’s school glue, ironed till dry and satin stitched. I sewed my next strip of material before I satin stitched the bottom part of the tea kettle.
