Picture of Sugru Potholders
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)

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! :)

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! :)
