Here’s the step by step on how to use it on fabrics or leather or watch the video below.

  1. Roll a pea sized amount into a ball.

  2. Smear the Sugru glue into the tear by holding the fabric taut.  Don’t flatten out a big piece of glue like putty and try to press it into the seam.  You want to use a smudging motion.  Thinner is better!   Latex or Nitril gloves help to keep the glue from pulling away from the fabric; it keeps the glue from sticking to your hands.
