Hi I’m Josh Rimer and i’m Owen Clark. And today we’re gonna show you how to fix a broken cup and make this to cover it up! A protective, stylish insulating sleeve. And you won’t even need to Sew It! For this simple repair and reusable
sleeve you’re going to need the two pieces of your broken cup, scissors, a pen, a cardboard sleeve from your favorite coffee shop two pieces of colored felt, and of course, some Speed-Sew. Hey Owen, did you hear the joke about coffee?
No I didn’t. It’s probably too hot and steamy for
this video anyway!
Haha, you’re probably right. And so the first thing you do is
grab your two broken pieces and add some Speed-Sew along the smaller broken piece. Then you just take the handle and put it
together with the cup and you can either wipe off any excess Speed-Sew that comes off now or you can wait till it dries because
it’ll actually just rub off at that point Owen, I think that men are a lot like coffee because the best ones are rich, hot, and
keep me up all night. I know you wouldn’t know much about that.
I think women are like coffee. Fine, to each their own. So then just put the cup aside for about half an hour so that the Speed-Sew can completely set and you’re gonna grab the main colour of felt that you want to use for your
sleeve and also the cardboard sleeve and the pen. Owen what do you call a cow that’s just given birth? Moo! I don’t know. Good guess, but no. De-calf-inated. Oh, of course. So trace along your cardboard sleeve so that you have the exact size shape and curvature that you need for your cup.
We’re gonna do ours a little bit bigger than the cardboard sleeve because our
cups for a little bit bigger than normal. Then cut along the line that you just
drew And then put into edges together because you’re gonna cut a little hack
circle that would fit around the bottom of the handle on your cup. Owen and a bad cup of coffee is basically the
end of a marriage It’s grounds for divorce Then grab the speed-sew bottle and we’re gonna a add a little bit of it to
the bottom up one side of the fabric and Owen’s going to use a toothpick so that he can keep it nice and thin And then just bring over the other piece of fabric so that we can put the two together and we can adhere them Owen do you know what they call sad coffee Despresso Oh that joke was so despressing Now set that aside because it’s going to need a bit of time to dry as well And you’re gonna grab the other piece of fabric and cut out four small squares Typically around about an inch in
diameter each Owen do you know what kind of coffee they served on the Titanic? What kind Josh? Sanka. When it’s finished setting grab your main piece the fabric and now we’re gonna add some more speed-sew to it one drop to each spot where we want to
put one of our diamonds so just try to evenly space them out, try to keep them kinda centered, however you wanna do it and then add your squares and of course
turn them so that they become diamonds Every time I drink my cup of coffee I get a stabbing pain in my right eye Yeah, so i think I’m gonna take the
spoon out of the cup next time. Ohh… And there you have it, not only is your
coffee cup fixed but you also have something to protect
your hands from the heat and to protect the cup from accidentally falling again. And it’s very
handy too because you can take it with you to use on disposable cups as well. Absolutely I’m Josh Rimer
