    QuiltyLisa wants to make covers for her kitchen appliances, and I told her I would post a picture of a cover I made YEARS (18?) ago for my mixer. No pattern - 3 layers, but not quilted - looks like a giant tea cozy. I laid the mixer on its side on newspaper and drew around it with a Sharpie. Then I winged it. I added scraps for a blouse, skirt and apron. The arms are stuffed and their tops are sewn into the seam between the top of the blouse and the upper part of the cozy. The head is totally separate - attaches with 2 big snaps, so it can be removed when the cozy is laundered. I tapered the top a bit, added a casing and drawstring. Pulled the string tight, tucked it inside. The red and blue have faded a BIT in 18 years!
