JD,
I love those little acorn baskets!
I'll have to make some for each of my fingertips. *Smile*

See I keep thinking that I need to make a pair out of 3-strand layed rope and then coat the inside with beeswax... Pair of those acorn baskets in the right size and colors would make a really cool set of shot glasses.

Hello Johnny,

if you would like a diagram of the cut sheet for a ditty bag there is a picture posted at this site  > http://pineapple.myfunforum.org/about1549.html&highlight=

And at least one of the members here has site that he offers them for sale and inspiration. >http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/ropeandcanvas/page3.html

dewildeman - I like those matts, they look great.  I wonder where a good source for old climbing rope is?  

I got mine from a local climbing gym.

Thanks Brian!
It covered nicely considering I left the core inside the paracord. Next one with paracord I will remove the strands.

10-point starknot earrings of 1.4mm blind cord.  No glue, no core.

Those are gorgeous little gems Vince!

No core? No glue? What then, magic? ;-)
Going to share a tutorial?

My very first attempt at a ditty bag ...

I used a purchased canvas bucket with the bolt rope removed for the bag (I have already hand-sewn a lifetime's quota of miles of seam  ;) ) and used a couple of tricks learned from wydonknot for the lanyard and bag-closer thingie.

Red and black are the colours of my gaff cutter's 1889 racing flag.

Attempt? You did it just fine SlipJig!
Too pretty for use. Now you'll have to make another for working.

Hi SlipJig,

Great looking ditty-bag!  I love the idea of using the Star Knot for a gathering of the strands - great job!
