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.
