Take one end of your cord and wrap it around your object with about 3 inches or so extra on each end (Picture 1-2). Now holding onto that, cut that length off your 100ft of cord. Here is the first chance for you to add your own flair to this design. We'll be needing a stopper for this drawstring. I used a Celtic button knot here (Picture 3).
I purchase mine from supplycaptain. As with anything in life you get what you pay for, if you want your pouch to last a long time you want to have the best cord available and with suplycaptain they guarantee the quality and authenticity of their cord. Many online retailers sell similar looking but poor quality cord with no guarantees on the durability ofthe cord. 1. Knot Trivet. Last month i bought lauren a set of “the family creative workshop” books for her birthday. we’ve been having a blast learning all sorts of new things as we make our way through the incredible variety of projects collected in the volumes. one section we were particularly excited to explore was all about knots, which we’ve long admired both for their usefulness and their beauty. this project is based on a “carrick bend” and is great for creating trivets and placemats, but you could just as easily hang it on your wall to be admired for its decorative charm. have fun!
