I am going to try  to make one of the paracord bracelets. Is there any site out there that shows how to start the brading on one? I want to think I saw a thread on here about how to do it, but I cant find it now.

I have got about 50 ft, but I am always looking for more. You would'nt happen to know where I could find some more would you?

 

How much ya want?  I have a fair sized spool, but Sportsman's Guide and Cheaper Than Dirt both have it if you need more.

no it's real easy to make... I have about 8 of them scattered around my room.  for my wrist size I use about 8ft for my button ones and just a little less for the buckle ones.

Yup, I think you were looking for those automatic fishing reels?  If I recall correctly they're a dozen for $29.97.

Well I finally set down and made one of the paracord bracelets. It was not near as difficult as I thought it would be. It is just a series of square knots tied around two other pieces of paracord. The buckle is a little big (I couldn't find any small ones), but it turned out OK for my first attempt.

Those are fun to make and pretty easy after you get the pattern down.  I've made version to use as a lanyard on my carry knife too.

I can do the bracelet part, but I have a hard time finishing them off neatly.  I tried tucking the ends inside the hitches but that didn't work well.  I tried tying them off in a knot but that makes a bulky mess, and I tried burning the ends and sticking them together but that didn't work either.   :(
