Introduction: Bobbin for Braiding Lanyards and Such
When making lanyards and the like, you have a lot of cord hanging around. It can get tangled up very easily as you twist and loop the cords.
One way to help prevent this from happening is to use a simple bobbin. The bobbin can be made from a plastic jug, cardboard, or other thin, slightly flexible substance. Size depends on how much cord you need to hold and how thick the cord is. Just cut to the illustrated pattern, wind the cord around the bobbin, and put the end under the "hook" on top.
