This adorable and yet oh-so-functional sewing project was made by Alli who blogs at B.Yazoo. When challenged to make something from her Pinterest boards, Alli chose to make a cover for a Kitchen Aid mixer.
"It took foreeeeeever! First, it took me one night to make the pieced mixer. I cut out all my pieces beforehand, which made the piecing part really relaxing since I could just chain piece all the sections. Then I embroidered the alphabet for a day and a night. I’m so slow! (The viola was a violin in the pattern, but my sister plays the viola)."
I love the embroidery Alli chose for the sides. She found the embroidery alphabet in a Japanese craft book. There are lots more pictures on her blog, so make sure you check it out.
Today is the final day of our Pinterest Challenge featured posts. But it is not too late to participate. Find a fun sewing or fabric project and make it this weekend! If you share your project, you will be entered to win a fabric giveaway sponsored by Fabricworm.com. Click here for the giveaway details.
We started out this week by showing Michelle's Pinterest inspired bag, and it seems appropriate to finish the week with another Pinterest inspired tote.
"The pattern was pretty easy to follow but man, oh man, I’m not a fan of pleats! Also, I’m not sure what I did wrong, there were supposed to be 6 pleats and somehow I had room for 7 *shrug* But that doesn’t change the bag. However, that meant 7 pleats times 4 pieces of fabric, it was tedious. I do love the way the topstitching works and holds the pleats down. I’ve put pleats in totes before but they’ve only been sewn at the top."
Thank you to all our participants in the Pinterest Challenge. The projects were awesome and it was really fun to put Pinterest to some pratical use. Again, here is the link to the fabric giveaway post.
I hope you join our challenge and make something this weekend!
