Great!...thank you!!

I went to Hobby Lobby today and they actually had a couple of different plastic buckles in the button section. They were wayyyy too big for my little man so I still think that the button is the way to go

Love them!

I am going to try some of these at my next show too. I found a local supplier of paracord at the same cheap price I could get online. I ordered some buckles too. 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".

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!

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?

Yes. I knew there was an army surplus near me so I called and asked about prices and colors. I am heading there soon! My buckles shipped today so I need to be ready to hand this off to my friend.

Like hotcakes! I'm gonna see about getting more stuff. I would have sold even more if I had more of them, but it got to the point where I was out of a lot of colors in the sizes people wanted/needed.

Poop... I called two diffrent stores (and had a very long convo with some crazy lady at one store! ROFL!) and they are both around 14cents a foot. I can get it online for about 11cents a foot shipped... UGHHH why can't it be as easy as just going to pick it up! lol

ETA: I did find one place that is about 7cents a foot, but its 2 hrs from me. Its only an hour from my inlaws, so next time I'm down there I may try to make it by this place.

Do you mind sharing which tut you used for the 2 color with buckle? I have yet to try the 2 color. My one color with buckle started to come undone a bit. I had to fire the thing to death (used a blow torch )

TIA
