Here she is...


I love my turquoise blue KitchenAid stand mixer so it was an obvious choice for me to recreate it in felt! I found turquoise felt that was a surprisingly good match and went to town.





The mixer itself is made entirely from craft felt, handsewn into shape, with polyester stuffing. I cut up an old ice cream pail to make the form for the bowl and then sewed a felt cover for it. (The handle of the bowl is filled with polyester stuffing.)

I hope you like it!

Such a cute idea!  Your real mixer is so lovely I'm not surprised you wanted to recreate it in that lovely shade of blue.

This Rocks!

I've asked for a kitchen-aid mixer for my birthday (in less than 2 weeks!) but I can't decide what color I want most! Smiley 
You're is lovely and the felt one is just as lovely! The felt matches amazingly well!!

i'm glad other people love kitchenaid stand mixers as much as i do.  i always get crazy looks when people find out that i asked for one instead of an engagement ring. 

you did a great job!!  just don't accidentally try and make a cake with the felt version.   Wink
