Picture of Paracord multipurpose drawstring bag

From past few days i was thinking about posting a different here i am with a paracord project..!! :D

i would like to clear it now that i am not the originator of this bag or this kind of knotting.

This kind of bag is very common and i saw a similar bag few days ago. It is very simple but takes a lot of time and patience.

it can carry fruits, vegetables, towels , quilt...etc...etc..

I seem to be the only person that has problems at the end with making the bottom. The pictures never show the bottom of the bag and I don't understand how you skip pairs and not run into problems.

Wow Faiza :), you have won the 2nd prize :) Congratulations!!!!
