They look great! My only critique would be to braid a little tighter. You don't want it to be so loose. But other than that, they look fantastic!

I splurged and got the buckles that have the built in whistle. They make it a tad more expensive, but since they also make them a tad more useful, I am thinking I can charge a bit more with the whistle to make up for the cost.

Since I have no time to make these, I have even found a friend to help. She gets a cut of the profits (which she can really use) and I get the bracelets for my show in May!

I think I am going to buy paracord tomorrow after school. It's going to be difficult to narrow it to a few colors though. They claim to have "every color under the sun".
Good for you! I'm still thinking about trying to see if the Army Surplus in town has decent prices. There are a few other ones that are fairly near by, and I don't mind driving to get it. I guess I need to just call around. Is that how you found a supplier?
