Could somebody point me to instructions on creating a belt made of paracord? I'm interested in the type that is braided, with a metal end that allows for a changing waist size. I saw one for sale on ebay, but would like to make one myself. I've never made anything with paracord before, but I've seen some of the wide variety of things that can be made from it.

Please excuse me if this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find anything while searching. Thanks.

I've never seen a braided paracord belt before, but it sounds like a good Idea... I have a braided paracord sling on my .22 that I made. I made it using 5 pieces that all ran in one direction. Then I wove a 6th strand through all 5 around the end and then back thru all 5, around the end and repeat... Its like basket weaving... You might try someting small first like a paracord keychain or a bracelet for practice and to know what you're getting yourself into...
I hope this helped a little... Fell free to IM me with any Q's
