Introduction: Paracord Comfort Handle

Picture of Paracord Comfort Handle

I was inspired to make this one day while I was carrying my archery target. I picked it up, and after walking with it for about 20 feet, I set it down, and noticed that there were some abrasion marks on my hands. The terrible handle on the bag was starting to cut into my hand. So i got out my paracord and got to it! Really, this could be applied to any handle, say on a backpack or laptop case.

Step 1: Materials

Just a question for anyone reading this, are the instructions easy to understand?

This is a great Instructable!

Especially with knitting/paracord/knot tying projects I find that the best thing to do is include a video that shows you going through the motions of tying a specific know. Having said that, I did find the instructions clear.

Cheers,

Laura
