How To Make a Paracord Drink Koozie Pouch PART THREE

Posted by Stacy on 1/9/2013
He's making it look easy.  With a little practice, I put one together pretty quickly myself.





Speaker 1: Whatís up guys? Iím coming at you with part three of the how to make Storm Drains pop can Coozie, and Iím using just a different jig and a different method. If you havenít seen part one and two, please go check them out.

So I told everybody Iíd come back to them when I weaved all the way around and I got to the point I was ready to take out the part that gives me some slack to begin with. When your pop can like this is caving in because youíre so far around, itís time to take it off. I would call that about three fourths weaved or so.

First of all weíre ready to take off the rubber band. And it is attached to the blue one, if youíre really worried about your rubber band, sorry. No leaving it on there. So you get that off of there, and then you get your jig out of there, or your piece that youíre holding for slack, and now you have a fairly loose fit again, but that will tighten up by the time we work our way around.

Letís just continue weaving at this point, and this one just got a little bit out of whack because we are loose again, but Iíll fix all that here in just a minute. Want to get all your cord nice and flat and each one of these, itís going to tighten up and by the end weíll be super tight again. I thought I missed one, that oneís just tall because itís so slack right now.

Pull all your slack through. Make sure youíve got no twists, push it all over. Line all this up.

Sorry about the dogs. Hush! They do some things I tell them to do. Then just continue weaving. Now this one, itís not as tight as I want quite yet, but weíll get it there as we continue tightening things up. And again the advantage of those curved fids really shows on these pouches.

Just continue pushing everything over, and then the one you did one before that is going to be a little easier to get tightened in there now. See, thatís going to stay put now, and now this one that I just did will be kind of loose until we get everything flush.

Just continue the weave, guys. Do the opposite of what you just did. Sometimes I think about leaving the dogs inside if Iím out here doing a video, but I like having them with me. If they really get on your allís nerves, let me know. Iím use to the dogs barking.

All right. Now when you do get to the end, thereís going to beÖ the first row that you started with and the last row you finish are not always going to coincide with the weave pattern that youíre doing. Other than that it will all line right up.

Again the one that I did before this is now the one I can get where I want it and the one that I just worked on is going to remain not quite so tight. Itís going to want to push itself away from the one next to it, until I do the next row. You can see where weíre getting real tight on there again.

Again guys the paracord for these tutorial series was provided by paracordstore.com, and definitely go check them out. Itís really nice quality. It doesnít get all twisted. Itís nice and tight, and when youíre dealing with bad paracord and youíre pulling it through and weaving it like this, it just wants to twist nonstop. The better the paracord the less twisting youíre going to get with it. All right, sorry I was off camera there a little bit, just straightening things out.

All right, now if you get to the point where youíre done, and youíre coming in an up pattern you can actually kind of scooch all these over, but I think weíre going to be good on this one. Youíll also start to see where the row next to the one you just did is always going to be the opposite, but the one that weíre coming up on, it doesnít look like itís done right on the weave, but it is. The first one that you did basically is going to be off.

Iím looking like Iím only going to have room for one more line, but Iím going to push all those over to where I have enough room. See what I mean. Looks like if I ran up through here Iím done, well I need to end down here for this design, so Iím going to scooch them all over again.

Been trying to make myself enough room for two. Like I said, I can push these over if I need to. Just going the opposite way and there will be plenty of room there now. Then this will be hidden once the projectís finished. Thatís our connector for the two colors when we started.

All right. So this line is actually the one we ran up, so it needs to come all the way out like this. Donít forget that line, because that will make your weave go off. Thatís why you want this line and this line to sort of be at the same place.

Now the line next to the line I just did is good to go, but the one across from it, in other words, the first line, the first weave we did, is going to be off from what weíre doing right now. Again, donít worry about that, just worry about the one that you just did, and being even with it.

Now this is one of those points when itís getting this tight that if you had your marlin spike it can help you to get your fid in the holes where you get it.

Pull that slack out again. Push everything over, and Iíll have one more line going down, and weíll be done with this portion of the weaving and weíll start half hitching the bottom.

These donít have to be absolutely perfect because weíre still going to be able to adjust these when weíre done, but enough room to go through them, thatís all youíre looking for. Donít worry about being off with the first one you did, just line it up to the opposite of the one you just did, like so. Really for the weaving this is the only one that can kind of look confusing when youíre looking at it and doing the work because itís not lining up the way all the other ones did. Just focus on the one to your right.

Excuse me.

Iíll just demonstrate at this point when itís getting close and tight you can get your marlin spike in there to grab the ones you want. Pull it out, and then that leaves room for your fid to go underneath of there. Or which youíve probably discovered this already, just get your fid through, and then start going from there, if you have a tight spot you couldnít work correctly. All right. When you pull a knot up, of course, you didnít have your fingers on the bottom of the paracord like I told you to, you get a knot every once in a while. All right guys, thatís going to be the last part of the weave. Going to have to come at you with a part four, for working on the bottom. For now straighten out all your lines, get them all right where you want them, so everything is nice and lined up and Iíll be right back at you with a part four, guys. Thanks for watching.
