    I started making paracord bracelets while on vacation this summer and seem to have gotten hooked! Here's a few things I've manged so far.

    I made new hat band for my hat:

    Then I added a couple of lookouts to watch my back. ;)

    A couple of bracelets, a lanyard and a bottle wrap:

    Nice! What kind of hat is that? It's the first one I've seen that really looks good instead of kinda cheesy with the paracord band.

    I like the bottle wrap quite a bit. It seems like one that won't come loose easily. Would you mind posting instructions for making it? Thanks!

    I used to have a hat like that in college. I wonder where it ended up.

    Bushidomosquito: The hat is by London Fog and is just a basic, cheap, wool felt. I think they're probably marketed under several brand names though, I've seen others like it in many places. It's a good hat; soft, wears well and sheds water like a duck.

    Invisiblejules: Thanks. Tutorial? Um, not exactly...but I can post a link to the one I used: http://www.instructables.com/id/PARACORD-GERM-GRENADE/

    Atomic, Nuphoria, CatherineM, Addict: Thanks!
