A new sling I made with the aim of being totally waterproof and also being a bit more substantial than my seatbelts and other paracord slings. It's made from 2mm polypropylene. 22" from pouch centre to fingerloop. The braid varies from 6 to 10 cord and the core has 1-2 cords also.

My newest.  I call this the Netted Butterfly pouch, based on CA's Butterfly Pouch in Leather Sling Templates.  Beautiful blue leather compliments of Joe_meadmaker.  Cords are 4 strand bamboo yarn chain-sennit braided.

Does anyone know how to or have information to point me in the right direction on making this full braided full pouch style sling?  Smiley

@StaffSlinger - That looks pretty awesome!  I'm going to have to make me one of those. Thumbs Up


@Deltafour1212 - This isn't really my forte.  So forewarning, I could be completely wrong.  I do braid slings, but I don't weave the pouches.  I just use leather.

But here's what those look like to me.  The cords are a regular 4-strand round braid.  If you're not familiar with that, just run a search online.  There's lots of tutorials out there.  The pouch looks like a regular over/under weave around those 4 strands.  The weave will be done in a similar way at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EhnhCY_08.  But in the linked video, he starts at the pouch because the cord needs to be looped back and forth to create the 4 strands.  You won't need to do that because the braid itself is already providing the strands.

You will need to add a strand right before you get to the pouch to do the actual weaving.  You can do that in several different ways, but the easiest is probably to add a piece of paracord along side one of your other strands for the last few inches before the pouch.  Then you can just start weaving with it.  And the same thing can be done on the other side of the pouch.  Just braid with the extra strand for a short length, then drop it (you can just cut it off and melt it).  Then braid the release cord to the desired length.

I hope that made some sense.  It's where I would start if I was trying to duplicate one of those slings.  Someone else who is more familiar with woven pouched may have some other ideas.  Good luck with your investigation!

I know exactly what you mean. I knew someone smarter than me would have the answer.  I was thinking about buying one to do some reverse engineering on it.   You just saved me a possible $50!!!   Smiley  If you do make one, please post it on here. I would love to see it.

THANK YOU, Joe!   Smiley

You're welcome my man!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  Maybe I'll give it a go at some point too.  I like the design.  It will be down the road a bit though.  I still have to finish my SITH sling.  The braiding is done, I just need to put the pouch on.  (Don't worry Merddyn, it's coming real soon buddy!).  And after that I have to finish another sling I started working on a while back.  It has a unique pouch that was inspired by one that JudoP made.

Good call on the links IG!  I like the second one.  In the first one, I think the sling looks really good.  I just wish the guy explained things instead of text and background music.
