This Dragon Claw Bracelet was made for my son. With patience, it is fairly easy to make. Just take your time, and breath.
Step 1: Materials
Jig(if you have one, it's much easier), scissors, lighter, crochet needle(I don't have a fid yet), 3/8 buckle, sowing needle, and thread(ideally same color as your cord).
Step 2: Thread the needle
Step 3: Combining cords.
With a lighter, use the blue section of the flame for a more controlled burn, and slightly melt the end of 1 of the paracords. Then quickly shape the melted part into a dome.
Take the same cord once done, and insert it into the other cord where you cut out the strands. Try to insert it the whole inch.
Using the blue part of the flame melt the end of the outer cord and smooth it along the cord that's inserted.
With your threaded needle, stitch the inch section of cord where they attached. After you first push the needle through the cord, pass the needle through the 2 threads between the knot and cord. Make as many stitches as you are comfortable with. Tie off ends when done. I also burn off the extra thread.
