It can get frustrating carrying soft items like blankets or clothes to a camp ground. I designed this super easy to make strap to carry blankets; however, it can also be used to carry other items like bundled wood which makes it incredibly useful!!
The Design is super simple and does not require many tools or materials. I used two colors to make this, but you could of course use one if you prefer. I am using this for camping so I made sure to choose darker color paracord to ensure that it will not show how dirty it will get after extended use.
10' - Red Paracord
7' - Black Paracord
Lighter or candle
Cup of water (I like to use this to cool the ends of the cord after I melt them)
Knife with serrated edge
Pen tube (used to slide on the cord to create a locking mechinism)
Wire hangar (for added support in the handle)
Measure tape (not required, but will help to be precise)
12" File folder (used to measure paracord)
Wire cutters (to cut hangar pieces)
I designed this handle to be super simple. It only requires 2 different types of knots and can be made with 17' of paracord and household items!
