Hey you got too much gear? How about a pair of jeans kicked down in the wrong size with a good hem on the bottom. ( not walked off ) Got some rope or para-cord. Gonna need a needle n thread or some fishing line. 4-8 lb. Is good.

Lets begin. To start cut the legs off them wrong size pants. And turn them inside out. Start w the needle n line and stitch the cut side. How you stitch is up to you but dont skimp you want a strong seam.

Now turn your pant leg stitched back out the right way find where the hem and the seam meet and make a lil ✂ then take youe length of rope twine shoelace para-cord or w/e and feed it halfway through a soda straw.

Now the easy part feed the straw with the cord through rhe hole in the hem next to the seam. If you ever fed poles of a tent trough fabric you can see where this is going bunch the fabric up arounf the straw and push pull. The straw and cord all the way around the hem.

When you get to the end just loop the middle end of the cord over the ends of the cord and pull..

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
