Coming Soon: Paracord Contest

Next week we'll be starting a paracord speed contest. Make anything out of paracord to win a Leatherman with a laser-etched message of your choice! You can include other materials or wrap the paracord around something else, but the main focus of the Instructable should be all about the paracord. So start thinking of some ideas soon to show off your paracord skills. (Photo credit: David J. Fred)

Paracord Instructables

Ok, let me preface what I am about to say by letting you know that I am not trying to be rude in any way. I think there are way to many Instructables coming out about paracord bracelets. I frequently get Instructable newsletters in my inbox with a paracord bracelet Instructable. Paracord bracelets is a very dead horse at this point. I am not trying to be mean or rude, I am just suggesting that people should think of a different Instructable before they consider making one about paracord bracelets. Cheers! Darman12

Paracord braided horse halter

Hi, I have challenged myself to make a braided paracord halter and I need LOTS of help.  I found one online that I really like and would like to duplicate.  I purchased a book "How to Braid Quality Custom Tack", however the halters in this book are not quite what I want.  Hoping someone will be able to give me some pointers or tell me where to find the directions I need. The picture of the halter I have attached is what I want to make.  It appears to me that you would need to start with the nose band to make this work but none of the patterns I have found start that way. Help!!

single ebook download page behaves as if I cannot log in

While logged in (account links look correct in upper right hand corner), I visit the "Guide-to-Paracord" page. Immidiately, it looks as though I've been logged out ("Login" appears in the upper right.) Logging in and returning to this page always has this same effect (no other ebook page [so far] does so.) When clicking the "download" link, the mini-login appears. entering my username/password only cycles the page (ending in the same result.) Maybe something wrong with the page...

Paracord phone case?

I want to weave a paracord sheet, roughly about 120mm x 210mm. How mush paracord will I need? Also, the paracord will be white in colour. I will also line the paracord sheet with fabric with a design on it. The design face will come back on itself to form a pouch and the excess will form a 'lid'. When the sheet comes back on itself, i will join the sides together with elastic material. Also, I will laser cut on black acrylic an android robot, which will sit on a face of the case. How do you find my design?
