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.

Step 1: Tools and Supplies

This is what you will need:

Yellow cotton fabric scrap

Red felt dots for ear muff

Embroidery thread red, black, and brown or red, brown and black paint

Matching thread

2 u-bolts with nuts


Seam ripper optional

Embroidery hoop optional

Pen and paper for drawing the pattern

Small round plastic lid for robot base

Sewing needle, sewing machine optional

<p>Nice Instructable, the use of nuts and bolts was a really good idea, keep it up!</p>
Thanks so much for the comment. I tried regular bolts but had difficulty trying to attach the arms to look right. I asked my husband if they make small elbow bolts and this is what he found in the shop. It worked perfectly. Have a great day!<br>sunshiine
Adorable!! I love the salad picture!
That was one of my faves also. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Have a beautiful day.<br>sunshiine
