First off, I can't exactly say that I am the originator of this design. Since I was going for a simple design, I used overhand knots for 99% of this design; since it's so simple, I'm sure others have ended up doing this at some point or another. With that said, this is my first instructible so please be gentle! Also, if you like this, please vote for this design for the paracord contest! Thanks!
Note: This can be used as a general idea on making more drawstring pouches/sacks using different knots.
Step 1: Stuff You'll Need
~100 ft of paracord
~ Some hardy object to use as a base/template (I used a trashcan. It's about a foot tall and has a diameter of about 7 inches)
~ Something to cut the paracord with (I used my multitool)
~ Lighter - to seal the ends of the rope
Ready? Let's go!
Step 2: 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). Also, tie up the end of the drawstring (Picture 4)
NOTE: For those interested in the Celtic Button knot, stormdrane has an amazing video on it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5twe3JuvGPE). If you guys don't know this man, he's a god at paracord and knotting projects :P
With that done, just slip your drawstring back onto your template!
NOTE: Don't forget to burn/close the ends of your paracord!
