We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.

Braided Rope for Drawstring Bag

Our ever growing collection of mega blocks needed a storage solution. We happened to have an old net laundry bag that would be perfect, but it's been missing it's drawstring for years. A spool of heavy duty string from the hardware department provided a new drawstring & now Baby Boy has an easy way to tote his blocks from room to room. :)
Using 9 strands of string (cut to the desired length) separated into 3 sections, the string was braided and tied off at the ends. This string was really prone to unwind, but a few passes over a candle melted the ends just enough to keep the knots & braids from coming loose.
