I know folks were looking for ways to make them stretch (not custom-sized). Here's an idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmXV6RyjTfk

Buckles were from the Scrub Hat Lady on eBay. The cheapest I've found compasses are here http://cgi.ebay.com/20mm-Mini-Body-P...item2a0ecac473 They're in the US but unfortunately they don't ship at all to Hawaii. Boooo! These look like the same one most people use on their bracelets.
LOL I started my son off with a business "loan" and fronted the money for his supplies. The rest is up to him - I told him it's his responsibility to produce a quality product, figure out the cost per piece and set a selling price that would turn a profit. The prospect of possibly making some money is really appealing to him. We'll see how it goes

That would be cute for smaller kids. I think it's too small for adults. It might break. What do you guys think?

ARRRGHHH!
I got my paracord in the mail last night and I was totally planning on making some bracelets today. But low and behold when I get up this morning (*I had left my mail in the car last nite*) Hubby had taken my car to work this morning . Figures...he uses his truck all week and then boom today he decides to use my car. MEN! SHEESH!

I just got some cord from the base near me, but all they have was Army colours....mossy green, black and tan (imagine that)

Guess I will have to order other colors online.
