A few days ago my friend Andrea kindly sent me 2 packages of Sugru, along with 2 trivets made by him as gift! 

I must admit that I had no idea what Sugru was until a few months ago when I saw it in many projects on Instructables...and wow, I was amazed by all the things that it seemed to be able to do!
For this reason, I was very excited when I got it in the mail and I couldn't wait to try it!!

But what could I do with it? I had seen so many examples around the web, I wanted to make something different.

So, here is my idea: 2 different kinds of mini potholders! 2 instructables in 1! :D

Step 1: What you need

  • 2 little packages of Sugru*
  • colored cotton threads
  • your hands!
  • parchment paper
  • pen/pencil
  • cutter
*the colors of Sugru are casual, you can use whatever color you like! (same with threads)
Very good! Nice
Clever! I have some sugru to try! Have a beautiful day! <br>sunshiine
Thank you!! Have fun making it and have a beautiful day too! :)
that's a great idea! :-)
Thank youuu! :)
mmm ok but given the price of sugru it would actually be 100's times more cost effective to buy a sheet of silicon and cut it up!
Well, I give the idea then changing it based on your own taste is up to you! :)
What a beautiful idea!!!
Thank you Mario!! I'm glad you like it :)
I want some suguru :), may be instrutables should add it to their prize pack. (Are you listening guys :D )This is a very cool Idea Linda.
Aaah this is such a wonderful idea haha I hope they really do it someday!! :D
Very fancy! I've been meaning to make a sugru thimble for embroidery forever, but I never thought of using it like this :D
Oh yes, I realized that it could be used as a thimble as well while I was making the second potholder!! The possibilities with Sugru are endless! :)
