Can't wait to get my cord!!
This is the way we did it when we were kids! Only difference was we used two ponies 'cause it laid flatter and gave a "bulkier" look.

We used black 1/4" elastic for those with larger wrists, way back when. Used to stitch the ends into a circle, but nowadays, there's glue.

This is the tutorial I used for the two color. I have the same problem, I have to melt it several times and it still came out. I have tried putting glue on one end and shoving into the other end, then melting the edges. That worked but it was difficult. I do put in several stitches after I melt the edges just to really secure it. I am going to try my woodburner to see how that works. You do have to take about 2" out of the cord before putting the other end in...this really gets it in there.

So Ive been making the paracord bracelets on elastics and without, and was googling other ideas for these and found the weave. Its pretty easy and it holds a LOT more paracord. Have you guys seen this one yet?

lol Holds more = uses more.... meaning more cost in product.... meaning I either lose more money or have to go up in price... haha Most people I sell to really just want it for looks, so I'll stick with the other one... but that is pretty neat lookin!

I've read this whole thread a million times but can't remember if this was addressed or not, so sorry in advance if it was! For those of you making the 2 tone ones, wouldn't taking out the inner core and fusing them together lessen the "survival" tactic? I would think they wouldn't be able to be advertised as holding 550 lbs, etc. if you've fused them. Or, am I completely wrong? I made my first one today, and it's all black, but I would love to add some colors. This could become very addicting!!

I think you are right. Once you fuse the two colors, you cannot have the whole length hold the same weight.

Part of the whole survivial thing is that you could use this cord for anything- making a shelter, splinting a leg, making a harness. I don't think it has to be only about rappeling down a cliff. Let's be real- is 8 or 10 feet going to get you very far anyway? That is how I still justify calling them survival bracelets. It's about having a supply of cord with you in case you need it.

I'm pretty sure you don't remove the entire inner core - just an inch or two where you want to fuse - but I could be wrong. I would still agree about the strength, though. As others have said, however, most are made for the look vs true survival.
