New rifle sling for my Mauser underway. Since its going to be my go to rifle until things calm down I figured I might as well accessorize.

I swear, this stuff is addicting. I hope to god I never need all the paracord I carry. If I do it means I'm in some serious shit.

And done now. I'll put up a pic once I put it on the rifle.

Nice work. I have done this for my winter coats. Works great. And I used glow in the dark para cord for those.

I was looking for a 1940's 'Popular Science' article on some braided/woven projects, that I'd shared the link for several years ago in a forum or blog post, but haven't found that particular link again yet. I have a few other items from the POPSCI archives that paracord enthusiasts may find interesting. 8-)

Tried my hand with a watch band. I think I have a hemo clamp at home to finish it nicely.

I made it following StormDrane's Instructable. Will try the alternate half hitch another time.

I wasn't sure how to secure the ends.
I had about 3' on each tail, and I didn't want to waste it; so the Mrs. did some funky macreme knots.
