I have made nets for various projects around the house, Including a storage place for stuffed animals, bottle covers and the like, even a shirt once.
For this instructable I will be making a net bag.
Living with other people and not wanting them to use up all my shampoo and soap, I made this nifty net bag to haul all my toiletries to and from the shower!
This bag is large enough to hold three bottles of shampoo, bottle of face wash, soap, and a razor with room for more due to its ability to stretch.
Enough jibba jabba, let's get started!
Step 1: ...What you will need...
1 piece of scrap wood (for a 'loom' if you will)
Cordage of your choosing. (I used Jute 3 ply 28lb)
Screws, Nails or Some form of fastener.
1 Shuttle (Optional)
Just a suggestion before starting, get some gloves or some kind of finger tip protection.
After 3 hours of knotting a net your finger tips may become rather sore, moreso with the natural fibers such as jute or hemp. Nylon paracord or some nylon string is easier on t he hands.
Step 2: ...Setting up your 'Loom'...
Start by putting four screws into the corners of your board and leave about 1/4 inch protruding.
Also, put a screw mid-point on both the top and bottom for more support later.
Once you have all the screws in, take some cordage and place it around the screws making a large square and then secure it tighlty by tying the ends together.
On to step 3...
