I made some little figures out of hemp and beads with faces painted on them.  I'll have to take some pics.  My nephew loved them.  I think I have a book around here with the directions.  I'll look around and post it if I can find it.  The knots were really easy (the directions were for a cross, but we modified it a bit) once we got started.

Oh, and check under "landyards" which is what we called them way back in girl scout camp.  I'll keep looking for that book too.

I found the book, now I just have to get to the scanner and post them.  I probably won't be able to do that for a few days (sorry) since I'll be at my sister's while she is dealing with yet another shoulder surgery.

These are what my nephew and I made - not quite the same, but similar knotting.  I had been looking to use those face beads for quite some time.

Hope the pics help!

I used to make those when I was a kid.  I also used to teach kids to make them at a drop in summer program my town used to run.  The same techniques can be used for hemp for an interesting twist.
