A few days ago I mentioned that I had ordered paracord and buckles. Today I put them to use.
I ended up going to YouTube for instructions rather than using the tutorial I linked earlier.
From left to right they are:
- Super Easy Paracord Bracelet from tovamos816’s YouTube
- River Bar Bracelet from TyingItAllTogether’s YouTube
- Waterfall Bracelet from Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume: 1 by JD Lenzen, the person behind TyingItAllTogether
Yes, I bought a book. It’s an ebook, though, and it was only $7. I learned how to do a nicer knot for the clasp and I really like that waterfall tie. Here’s an attempted closeup of the knot.
As you may have guessed, the buckles aren’t working. I got glow-in-the-dark ones which are too big and translucent green which are too small. I think the small ones might work for friendship bracelets with embroidery floss and for now my 7-year-old son is using a glow-in-the-dark one to make a belt.
He enjoyed doing it for a bit and took a break for dinner but then came back to it a bit more. It goes pretty quickly so I think he’ll be able to finish it up tomorrow. I’ve already started shopping for new colors. Move over yarn, here comes paracord!
