For those who know me, they know i'm not one to let go of something if it's not broken...exhibit A!
Here's my easy DIY tutorial on how to wrap a cord or cable that is on it's last legs!
You will need
A Cable that needs some love
A Glue Gun
The All Important Steps
Step 1 - If your wire looks anywhere as battered and bruised as mine strip it! Peel off all the hinderances, strip it down to the bare wire.
Step 2 - In the interest of health and safety, wrap the wire with electrical tape, keeps it from combusting in the future...
Step 3 - Take your fabric scraps and cut them into 4" strips. I chose the stunning African Print Fabric - Mona, from our SS19 Fabric library, LOVE IT! The strips don't have to be too long, you just need enough to completely cover the full length of wire.
Step 4 - This is definitely optional but for the best finish I decided to sew the strips together in half to create tubes and using my loop turner I turned them inside out encasing all the raw edges. I ironed them flat.
Step 5 - Heat up that glue gun and repeat the wrapping only this time with the fabric strips. Heads up - It gets messy!
Voila! Happy Charging
The Honest Review
This DIY was actually harder to execute than I originally planned. Wrapping was a slight myth as the electric tape is thick and difficult to manipulate. The end result is definitely bulkier than I expected but I love my new cable nonetheless, no loner embarrassed to charge my phone on the train...
