I was inspired to draw up this English Paper Piecing pattern of my favorite mixer when I saw a pink mixer on some fabric that I purchased. I googled a stock cartoon photo, sketched it, and made it up as a hot pad for my SIL in pink polka dot, as she is a breast cancer survivor. When I got so much positive feedback and encouragement on my blog about it, I decided to make it into a pattern. If you love EPP or the quiet and portable enjoyment of hand sewing, I hope you'll give it a try. It is the perfect size to be made into a hot pad or a quilt block, or other handmade crafts. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Simple sewing, whip stitching, English Paper Piecing experience helpful but not necessary. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished block is 8.5 by 8.5 in.
