I would appreciate your votes for my instructable in the Paracord contest.
Ive made the pouch, now if only i had a leatherman to put in it instead of a piece of wood!
This instructable will show you how to weave a custom made pouch using paracord.
The method used can be easily modified to fit a range of items from multi-tools and torches to mobile phones. It is very simple to make and doesnt use any fancy or difficult knots.
This patricular pouch used a total of 25 feet of 550 paracord however if you are making a pouch for something larger then obvooisly you would need a little more.
When making anything its always best to start with the best materials you can find which is why i always recommend using genuine military spec 550 paracord. The better the cord the longer your pouch will last.
I hope you like the instructable!
Step 1: Materials
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. Approximately 30 feet of 550 Paracord, any colour you like.
2. Scissors to cut the cord
3. Lighter to seal the ends of the cord
4. A pair of forceps or needle nose pliers
5. A hair pin or if you have one a permalock needle (not essential but it helps with the weaving process)
6. A scrap piece of wood at least 18 inches long and 3-4 inches wide
7. Some drawing pins or something similar to hold the cord in place as you weave.
