The instructables robot contest has inspired me to make the instructables site robot; you will notice from the pictures our site robot is very busy in the kitchen, garden, craft room and shop! I have wanted an instructables robot prop to add interest to my instructables and for custom instructables robot patch stickers to send to members here on instructables.
He is fairly quick and easy to make. I used nuts and bolts for the arms and legs to make him not quite so cuddly. I had serious plans on making him a chefs hat but decided it would be too small for me to attempt. Perhaps I will make a plush instructables robot and make him a chefs hat in the near future. I hope the instructables robot likes this instructable. He is quite handsome and he makes a lot of members very happy!
Follow through and I will show you how to make the instructables site robot.

This is what you will need:

Step 2: Trace Robot

Draw a robot slightly larger than the size you want (to allow for seams).
Cut a piece of yellow fabric quite a bit larger than the image if you will be embroidering the robot.
Trace the robot onto the fabric as shown.
Step 3: Embroider or Paint the Robot
Embroider or paint the robot as shown.
Place the cloth in the hoop or paint to your liking.
