    Just picked up a new bag. It's all grey which I like but the grey zipper pulls just blend right in. Looking to spice things up a bit! [​IMG]

    just what i did .. its shoelace because i didn't think of paracord(stupid me) but you get the idea

    for that color of your bag i would recommend you to use dark-ish red

    Red would look pretty sweet. I think I have that same monster backpack at home I might have to do the same to mine

    Is there a way to make that with a loop on it so you could have the loop going directly onto the zipper?

    In the last step of the tutorial
    single strand star knot
    do not trim the end that emerges between the points of the star. Bring it around in a loop of the desired size back between the points of the star to the center of the star. Add a dab of glue and trim the end.

    There is a thread about what to do with paracord. Loads of ideas on there but in particular a guy who i think is called Essexman makes some awesome paracord figures/voodo dolls. His Star Wars ones are great. Well worth a look.

    I tend to just use the snake knot

    Although I guess I could use these guys as Zip pulls?

    Well our Essexman's clever of course
    His childrens' toys drilled - no remorse
    It's just so great to see
    Customized EDC
    And his zipper pulls all use The Force
