In a survival situation it's a useful skill to be able to make cordage out of natural plants.I had recently made some cordage and was wondering what to do with it and then I thought why don't I use it like paracord and make a braclet or keychain out of it.

Step 1: What You Will Need

-Key Ring
-Fibery Plants

Step 2: Making Your Cordage

1.)Gather plants that are very fibery
2.)Cut or strip off strands of the plants fibers
3.)Use the reverse twist method to make the rope(If you don't know how to do this look it up)

Step 3: Starting the Keychain

Bend your rope in half and put it through the keyring.Then tie a knot on both sides of the rope where it touches the key ring.Place one side across the bottom loop then wrap the other rope around it and put it through the hole you made with the first half.Then repeat this until you have about 1 in of the loop left.

Step 4: Finishing the Keychain

Tie remaining rope onto the loop at the very end and cut of slack.

Step 5: The Finished Product

It should look something like this when it's done.

Can you go into more detail for step 2? It seems like the heart of the matter.

Now this is really survival!

I don't think it should say PARACORD keychain. It won't hold 550 pounds
