Thermomix (& Overlocker) Cover PDF PATTERN


Unlike all the rest of my kitchen appliance, my Thermomix sits permanently on my kitchen bench. I felt like it needed a little special cover for the rare occasion that it’s not whipping us up something delicious.

This tutorial contains instructions to make a cover for both the TM31 and the TM5. It can also be re-purposed as a cover for your overlocker/serger (standard size).

It’s a very simple pattern you can whip up in an afternoon. It features an outside shell, soft middle padding & an inner lining. It’s then all finished off with some easy contrast binding around the base. There’s even a choice of pockets, one especially designed as a handy place to keep your Quick Reference Guide.

So raid your fabric stash and find something amazing to match your kitchen & dress up your ‘Thermie’.

Width = 29cm (11 1/2”) 
Depth = 30cm (11 3/4”) 
Height = You have a choice of 2 heights:

  • *31cm (12 1/4”) for the TM31 
  • 34cm (13 1/2”) for the TM5

*The shorter height (TM31) easily fits my standard overlockers.




  • Fabric (for outer & lining).
  • Fusible Pellon* - also known as fusible wadding, padding, fleece or vilene. I find the thicker Vilene H640 works well to keep the cover’s form.
  • Thread to match
  • 25mm (1”) Binding (store bought or make your own. Click on icon for tutorial).
  • Interfacing/Fusing


  • Cover Fabric (112cm/45” wide): 70cm (27.5”)
