When my old food processor gave up the ghost at the end of last year, I decided it was time to take the plunge and upgrade! After a lot of researching online I ended up settling on the Magimix 5200XL! I love it, and have been cooking up a storm with it ever since.
The body of the unit is quite heavy so this lovely piece of equipment is living on the bench top next to the stove. I didn’t want to get any oil or dust on it, so I decided I would sew a cover, but I wanted it to be nice and colourful!
Step 1 – Find a pattern! I couldn’t find a pattern specifically for the Magimix, but I did find this pattern from the KathieSewHappy store on Etsy. It fit the base measurements of my machine and all I had to do was add a little height to the pieces. Kathie’s pattern does come with instructions to make pockets, but I decided for mine I would prefer it to be reversible and without pockets.
Step 2 – Find the material! I had purchased some bright and colourful material from my local Spotlight store, rainbow and greys for the outside and a deep magenta for the inside. It is a heavy weight cotton, but so lovely and soft to the touch!
Step 3 – Make the cover! Well this was the easy part. Extending the pattern to add the height needed and then sewing it together was easy with Kathie’s simple to follow instructions. Like I mentioned above, I did leave out a few parts, but I was very happy with the finished product.
Step 4 – Enjoy it! Most of the time I leave the Rainbow side face out, but I will change it up from time to time! Here it is 🙂
If you’re looking for a pattern for your food processor, I’d definitely recommend giving this pattern a try!
