From time to time, I have wanted or needed to make a carrying handle on a bag or other item. Using the same knots that are used in the most common paracord bracelet, it's a simple matter to create yourself a sturdy handle as long as you have two anchor points, one for each end of the handle. Most recently, I purchased a scabbard for my H&R. I really wanted to make a leather one myself, but my leather skills are just mediocre, and a large section of leather for a project like just is not cheap! I haven't given up on crafting a leather one at some point, but it'll be a while before my leather skills have me confident enough to try. Anyway, the scabbard I found is a cordura one, lined with molle attachment straps and loops.
Below, I have laid out the simple method I use to craft a paracord handle - in this case using the molle loops. If you give this process a try, be sure to leave me a comment if you have any questions at all. I read all comments and will gladly try to walk you through any tough spots that I have not explained well here.
here is a good video explaining it. It's a great pattern and useful for all kinds of stuff.
