nope there was a thread a while back where someone did make a sling with adjustable length cords. Some sort of special knots i think. Should be findable in the search if it's not in the index.

Navajo Sling Use?
Reply #901 - Nov 12th, 2016 at 12:37pm
 
I was wondering if anyone has any information of use of the sling by the Navajo. I would assume they did as there are collections containing Ute and Apache slings. I'm working on a university paper on the slings of the SW and would really like to get some citeable info on Navajo slings.

I've looked over at the Project Goliath page to no luck, any help would be appreciated thanks!

Found this in the FAQ but the link's broken, can anyone point me to the way of tying this pouch?

It's a sheepshank sling. There is a half hitch at both ends. Run the cords through the small opening that is created when you tie the half hitches and you are good to go. You can also add a weaver and make a solid pouch.  Wink

Thank you Walter
I was going to make some (actually 20) slings for a class but don't have nearly the time to braid each, nor enough leather/seatbelt for that many solid pouches. Sheepshank's gonna be perfect.

I've been out of the game for awhile, but I just got 500 ft of paracord for sling making. I recall that rockman and pj were among the most highly recommended designs, but I can't find the tutorials anywhere. I tried the sticky, but it says the page is no longer available. Any ideas?

Happliy, those tutorials weren't just on the now-absent main site; you can find them here:

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

Does anyone have pointers on adding leather to braided slings? Specifically on sewing it in, etc

Are you aiming to sew onto the split pouch itself as a covering? Sew it over a split to create a solid pouch? Line the fingerloop?

I found the sewing side fairly simple to pick up, just poke holes through the leather with an awl then you can either sew from hole across to the other side hole then pull it tight so it constricts the leather to the sling, or you can actually push the needle through the hole and the sling itself actually attaching it on. I find the latter is less tight but it depends on what you need. Softer is sometimes better, and it's probably easier too.

Ahhhhh. I see. Well, I was thinking that you sewed it into the sling itself on a split pouch. This gives me more options.

In the case of a split pouch I find sewing on seems to work better. If the split has thin cords you may have to sew across though. Fingerloops my preference is to sew across and pull tight.
