How to make a thimble

Super fast and easy way to make a ‘fits like a glove’ sewing thimble 🙌🏻

I have a thimble somewhere in my house but I needed one ‘NOW’ so I made one in a couple of minutes
And it’s fits my finger like a glove - no more balancing acts 👍🏻

Pop a stick into kettle boiled water for about a minute - wait for the wiggle- tear off what you need then mould and smooth wait a minute for it to harden - stand back and admire your clever work! 😍

You will need:

  • FixIts stick
  • Kettle boiled hot water
  • Needle to make indentations.

Get your FixIts

We know how it is. Football's on the telly, the Olympics are round the corner. After all that rain, it's finally good enough to go outside and do something fun yourself, maybe even sporty, except... All the stuff in your shed's a bit shoddy. Cobwebs everywhere. You dust it all off. Your bike helmet's seen better days. The cricket set's two bails short of an over. Your favourite swimming goggles (which shouldn't even be in the shed) are broken. Be a good sport, don't replace this stuff. Just FixIts it. It saves you time and money. Plus you're helping the planet a bit, too.
One of the reasons I created FixIts is because I love spending time with my kids, mending stuff. There's nothing better than working on a project together, from start to finish, identifying and solving a problem, learning new skills, making mistakes (and fixing them), and watching my kids grow in the process. If you happen to be looking for gift ideas, our Father's Day Bundle is great for those lucky Dads who love to think outside the box.
It's the perfect time of year for getting outside, whether that's in a garden or on a balcony, or a window sill! Even better: getting the whole family involved. This National Children's Gardening Week, we've got some FixIts inspiration for you, so your little people can have as much fun, too. From adapting tools like trowels and watering cans to creating little seed dibbers, having fun with plants is for everyone. So clean out your window boxes, yank up your parasols, and grab your nearest FixIts sticks. It's time for some fun outdoors.
