    New use 4 paracord

    Needed to do some modifications to the grand trunk hammock. Tiedowns/ loops. My wife's puny sewing mating couldn't handle the thinest nylon webbing I had

    I'm going to hanging for the next three days and really wanted/ needed to get this done. SOOOOOO

    Cut a bunch (22) of 2 inch pieces of paracord. Gut them, and cut them lengthwise down the center. Melt Ed all four sides and wa la !!! Have perfect strong ribbon
    Now I can batten this thing down for a huricain

    Sewing machine lasted for 14 of them, then the medium size needle broke. The rest have been hand sewn

    Always claimed to be a master of making due, just another notch in the bed post
