    Who is it for?

    How much cord did you use?

    I really like that belt.

    So you used a spool of paracord for that project?

    I never made a belt that long so i was thinking to make one that long you needed a spool of cord to keep from having to join cord together.
    I didn't think joined cord would have the strength of a continuous length of cord for a belt.

    I didn't fuse them together. I just used the cows hitch knot on the buckle for each color

    It also makes it easier to work with because instead of working with a 100 ft of cord for each color, you only have to work with 50 ft of each

    See the 2 cows hitch knots make each color only 50 ft to work with ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1432320768.262770.jpg
