I watched one with a military/spec forces type of guy making one (well it was from the neck down, so I am basing that on the t-shirt he was wearing...lol).
I think they should sell great at your upcoming show! Different colors and sizes...you can't go wrong.
Thanks! I use aprroximately 7 feet for a small bracelet grand total. The place I bought from sells it by 25 feet sections. But I did find a place that sells it by the ft. (or maybe it was yard...IDK)

I liked this video the best. He has other videos you can watch that were really helpful.
