I just joined the forum and have completed 2 projects so far...i started with a bracelet for my wife. I messed up in the measurements... but it left a bit longer cable between the buckle to hang some dangles or some clips. Then i did a DNA knot for my keychain.

Made this for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day:


Made this for my wife: (I added some Chinese staircase at the end of the stitch to hide the last bit of the second string)


Made this with #95 paracord, it was the first time using it. I tried to make a bracelet but looked kinda funky. Took it apart and made a Chinese staircase for wife:

Thats a bit of an understatement lol. I had originally bought this for my wifes nieces to try out. it looked like something a kid would enjoy... Until i saw my first youtube video, wife told me to open it up and give it a shot, thats how she learned how to knit and crochet. Youtube can be a test of your patience but it is worth it in the end. Here i am now lol and i havent given the nieces anything yet :doh: lol It is an amazing hobby, i just need to make my own jig to make it easier on me. Its kinda hard and sometimes comes out crooked. My wife says "its not a hobby its a life skill" :p

Then I went ahead and made a dragonfly with the left over purple #325 paracord. That too would have left some long scrap strings. What I did was went under the dragonfly and fed them through the "eyes" and melted the ends. That ended up being like antennae looking things for the dragonfly, while at the bottom it gave it a "belt loop" feel to it. I put the bracelet through the "belt loops" and pulled the "antennae" to tighten it. Im pretty satisfied with the results so was my wife. :D:cool:

I've never been happy with any of the T-Virus bracelets I've made. Very hard to be consistent.
Im with mixed emotions with it. It would look beautiful made perfect, but like you said, its really hard being consistent. The one I tried was with the #325 cord and it was a bit difficult to manipulate. I bought some glow in the dark paracord #525 and some black also, I'm going to try it again. Lets see how it goes.

The dragonfly looks nice.
Thanks, thats the first one I've made, Wife loved it:). I was thinking of making a ring sized one with #95 paracord:confused: lol

Thanks guys.
I bought a black cable and two glow in the dark paracord #525 cables (green and pink) both 50 ft. I used those two make two lanyards, one for my mother in law and another for my sister in law. I used a basic cobra stitch for both and I bought some lanyard hooks and used those. My mother in laws is pink, and my sister in laws is green. I know the pink looks white, its like a baby pink... for some reason it looks white lol
