Paracord Bullwhip Hello everybody! I've been enjoying this site for long and have finally found enough time to write a first Instructable by myself. I'll will share with you how to make a real paracord bullwhip. It should not be that hard for those of you who know their way through ropes, knots and braiding. We will be making a 2.50m ( ~8.2ft) whip, from handle tip to fall, not including the cracker. Take your time with this one, you'll get what you give. The result was well worth it, this thing cracks loudly and easily as expected and it ended up being a very rewarding project. I'd like to thank "Bullwhipcracker" for his nice info about whip making that served as an inspiration for this project and saved me some headaches about figuring out the correct lengths for the different steps. Now, let's get to the fun stuff :) Update: Here's a short vid showing that it's indeed the real deal.

Animated Knots Tutorials By Grog Fleece Dog Bed Tutorial Loki got a new bed today and the weather held out for photos, so you all get a new tutorial! Read below to learn how to make this cute fluffy fleece dog bed! I’ve made… four of these now? You’ll need 1 1/4 yards of fleece. I cut the 26″ square first, then folded in it fourths. (If you buy 1 1/3 yards, you can squeeze out 28″ circles, but not much more than that.) Now, sew the long pieces together on the short side, right sides together, to make once long piece. Now mark the halfway points on both circles. Now take one circle and place it right sides together with the long piece, matching the center seam to the center point. Sew in both directions starting from this center point/seam to 4″ from the other center point. This diagram will help: Sew the other circle in the same manner. Now pin the seams all the way up to the center point, then fold the excess back and pin it in place. This should give you a finished bed with a hole in the middle where you will turn and stuff the bed. Keep sewing…

Slatts Rescue Belt (paracord belt upgrade) For those of you who are regular visitors to this site, you know how often I stress making 550 Paracord an essential item in your bug-out-bag, survival kit, car and so on — the more the better. Given the strength of paracord (550 lbs of tensile strength) and its many applications (tiedowns, lashings, shelter building, friction fire making, fishing line and nets, splints, repairing equipment, tooth floss and many more) it’s one of those things you should never leave home without. In my article on How to Put Together a Survival Kit I talk about my three-tiered survival kit system, with the first tier being what you always have on your person. My Journey to Find the Ultimate Paracord Belt Originally I had posted an article about the first paracord belt that I made. At that time I began looking for other belt ideas. How to Make the Slatt’s Rescue Belt The stitch, while it may appear complicated, is actually quite easy to do.

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!derek & lauren CLICK HERE for the full project after the jump! here’s what you’ll need: -14 feet of 1/2” rope for an approximately 8” trivet (we recommend you play around with different lengths and thicknesses of rope until you find a size and style you like. the cotton rope is great for this project, but we couldn’t resist the nylon rope with its amazing patterns and colors.) 2. form a loop with the right (longer) piece as shown.

From $3 IKEA Floor Mat To Fabulous Floor Pouf Wanna know how a couple of these striped rugs become this cushy piece of bum lovin'? Well, sit down and relax. Let me start from the beginning. I happened upon these beauties a while back whilst browsing on West Elm's website. What a great {and fashionable} extra seating option, I thought. {I don't know how it is at your house, but when we get the whole fam together, it always seems like we are running out of seating. If money were no option, I probably would have just bought them directly from West Elm. I don't know if I am just picky {or cheap...or both}, but I couldn't find any fabric that "spoke" to me. No angelic light, no overflowing of emotion. They are $3 rugs from IKEA. All you need is:mediocre sewing skills {by that I mean, the ablility to "fudge it" a little and sew in a straight line}. A Zipper {optional, but with five kids I needed my pouf cover to be removable/washable...this is where my fudging skills came in...didn't know how to sew in a zipper til I did it.

How To Make A Paracord Leatherman Pouch For best results use genuine 550 Paracord. 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. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Fabric Leash As promised I have finished up one doggie-inspired project and I am offering it here for you to try. It is really simple, pretty quick and I've got a few photos to walk you through it. Then after you're finished you can walk your dog with it. Materials:*one six foot length of cotton canvas strapping-whatever width you desire, but at least one inch*3 cut strips of fabrics, equal in length and width to your strapping*one of those metal thingermaginggins that latches to the collar, readily available at your hardware store*heavy duty sewing machine needles Step one: Stitch one strip of the fabric to the strapping-very close to the edges on each side. You'll want to cover this stitching with the edging later. Step two: On the remaining 2 strips of fabric, fold the edges in and press so that the edges meet in the middle. Step three: Fold in lengthwise once more down the center and press so that raw edges are tucked away. I hope all is clear and good luck giving your pup a new leash on life!!

Easy Paracord Drawstring Pouch First off, we'll be needing a drawstring. 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). With that done, just slip your drawstring back onto your template! NOTE: Don't forget to burn/close the ends of your paracord!
