My first Sugru project

I’ve wanted to get some Sugru since I first heard about it, but didn’t really have a use for it. Sugru is a self setting rubber that comes in different colours and is still flexible after it cures.

I moved in January into a smaller apartment. The first thing you saw when you came in the front door was the water heater that is hidden behind some painted wood slats. I decided to put my cleaning and laundry supplies here but didn’t want to see them. I got a fabric shower curtain from a discount linens shop in Vancouver, cut and sewed it into a long panel. I used Sugru to attach magnets to the curtain and the wall so that it would click closed and always hang nicely.

I’m pretty happy with this, though if I were to do it again I would be more careful about applying the Sugru to the fabric, perhaps even taping the area off so the circle was cleaner and less lumpy. I would have also used soapy water to make the finished surface smooth.

I’ve also used Sugru to fix the handle on my crock pot and to fix a few fraying phone cords.
