  1. I see no indication as to how much cordage is used to make the bell pull here. It is beautifully done, but the worst thing that can happen is for someone to underestimate the amount of cordage needed or over estimate and have too little cordage left to do another project.

    You don’t suppose you could indicate the length/yardage/footage of the cord used to make them?
