also, iirc it's the kind of plastic cording that they used to make the box stitch weaving for keychains.

iirc - i baked them at the same temp/time . . . but they're real springy/keeps their shape.

lol - pls don't ask how long ago i made these = the reason for so many iirc!
Oh pr, I'd love to see some pics please!! I don't recall ever seeing a korker made out of plastic lacing cord
