Nice, I've made mostly hemp jewelry in the past but I recently made a few paracord bracelets with the side release buckles and I like em.  I also made a replacement watch band using the cobra stitch and it's holding up great and looks pretty good.  You might want to give that a try if you have any old watches lying around.

Also I put together a squidoo page with a few of the more advanced paracord knot videos that I had found here:

I love it! I made one last year and hubby at time just had to have one, and when I wore it to class, a guy had me to take a charm like component and make one for him. I just recently (last night lol) ordered some side release buckles to try since I couldn't find any around here. I have an army penpal that was surprised I was able to make one, he is supposed to get me some old military buttons Cheesy I have already made two lanyards for gifts & have been requested to make two more. I love the versatility of the paracord!

I love this and wanted to make something similar for my dad for Christmas.  I had no idea where to get the supplies or what the cord was even called!  Now I just need to find me some paracord so I can make these for next year!

Fabulous bracelet.  I ordered one of these for my nephew for Christmas in Red Sox colors.  Great job creating one for yourself!

I love 5-50 cord! Cheesy It's so durable and works for almost everything. I've gotten so much use out of the bracelet I wear.

My oldest son made some of these last year, and people are always commenting on them (and wanting one).  I ordered one online for my son for Christmas because it had a dog-tag attached, and I didn't have time to figure out how to make them on my own before Christmas got here.  His friends at school are always bugging him for one.   I've even read about a kid that makes them and sells them online to make extra spending money.  This is definitely a future project for me.  Thanks for sharing!
