Nice little earner.

During the winter when I couldn't get about, I brought some paracord with the idea of making bracelets, gun slings, zipper pulls, keyring fobs, anything really.

I was in the hairdressers a week or so ago, and I had a camo bracelet on my wrist, the hairdresser asked "where I got it","I made It", I said.

She rang this morning and asked if I would make her 50, as she has a stall at the local music festival and thought they would go down well. Nice little earner while watching the TV.

I have made a start, but bugger is it hard on the fingers. Here are a few I have already done.
I'm just about to start some using another knot. I have just purchased a whole load of girly colours purple, hot pink, neon orange, acid blue, peachpuff and a couple of bright coloured camo's

That's the game anything to "turn a pound" as my old man used to say , well done .

Thanks for the positive comments.

Just tied a couple using a different knot, it gives a round bracelet rather than a flat one.

K........If the colours below are what you are looking for, then I can try and make two for you.

The only temporary problem is my supplier of paracord  (I don't have silver grey in stock) has just gone on holiday for 3 weeks, so it will be at least 4-5 weeks before I could get them to you.

You can drop me a PM if the colours are correct and you wish to place an order.

Electric blue



Navy blue



Silver grey
