Want to show your love of zombies, or just wear a bracelet made of paracord that has awesome colors? Stand out from the crowd with zombie themed paracord bracelets and key fobs!
I am starting a hobby from home where I make custom products out of paracord, such as bracelets, key fobs, belts, and leashes. I want to carry a large stock with different colors, including strands that are single color and multi-colored. Luckily, I have found a great supplier that carries almost 200 different colors of paracord. The goal of this project is to be able to carry a small stock of all the single color cords and about of third of their muli-colored cords. This will help me to fulfill any orders I receive and restock my cord quickly. I will also be able to have a booth at local craft fairs and be able to have some ready made stock on hand. If this project goes well I will be creating more projects, offering more colors, weaves, belts, and leashes!
I have 5 zombie colors available:
I use the below weaves for the items:
All bracelets come with a black buckle, and all key fobs come with a ring and a carabiner* to attach to a belt loop or purse! Carabiner colors are:
*Please note that the carabiners are not rated to bear weight, and should not be used for climbing, leashes, collars, child harnesses, or as a life saving device.
Key fobs are made 3 inches in length. Bracelets are made as 6, 7, 8 or 9 inches, also half inch sizes (for example, 6 1/2 inches). The jig that I use to make bracelets is very exact, and I always measure every bracelet after weaving it to ensure the correct length!
In order for the bracelet to fit correctly, a proper measurement should be taken. To measure your wrist, take a shoelace or piece of string and put one end against your wrist, and then wrap it around your wrist until it meets. Mark the string where it meets or pinch it between your fingers and hold it against a ruler to see your wrist size. Depending on how snug you like your bracelet, you can add or subtract length. I add 1/2 of an inch to an inch to the bracelet I wear, because I like it to be somewhat loose. If you provide a size that is not a whole or half number, I will round up. For example, if you say your size is 6 3/4 inches, I will round it up to 7 inches. If you provide a size in Metric then I will use Google converter to change it into inches.

Risks and challenges
The largest setback to this project would be if my supplier ran out of the specific color cord that I need to complete this. However, I have spoken to my supplier and they receive their restock of cord fairly quickly. I have also researched this issue and found an alternate supplier if necessary.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
