    So I ended making a watch strap using gutted paracord for the foundation since non-gutted would not fit under the pins. It was essentially a standalone strap:

    The two ends are then fused together - one inserted inside the other, then melted, and stitched together, as described here: A better way to fuse paracord strands.

    Then I used a Solomon V Bar pattern over that foundation.

    Looking for advice on how to tie the end off of my paracord wrapped Candiru. Any thoughts? (Right now I just did a little temporary knot...didn't want to cut all the excess off until I figure out what to do) Thanks!

    in my EDC pics, you'd see a lot of Paracord being used.

    It's fun to mess with, try different things and all that good stuff.

    My favourite, still, is the square sinnet for fobs. I use it on my Gerber Shard and haven't looked back.

    Thanks! Got the idea from Pinterest.

    I'm doing a set for my family to wear on the 4th.

    Here's the final setup, i added another loop making the paracord to have almost the same length of the car keys. It caught some glances in my workplace today :)

    Been keeping it simple. Tying a few here and there at work to kill downtime.

    And here's a young family member showing one off.

    She can't read yet. And yes, this will be used to embarrass her in a few years. :p
