I agree, Tying dogs, tying tarps, using it currently for keeping my bedroll rolled(lost my straps), tying gates shut.
In a pinch I have used it for piggin" string. Temporary tack repair.
I seen some one replace the seat and back of a folding lawn chair by weaving baling twine, same with making a hammock. Tying panels onto the trailer or panels together when the pins are lost. I have used it to tie the back gate shut on the trailer when the latch broke. Temporary fence mending. Sneaky way to catch horses. Makes dandy clothes line.

For " pretty", use strings cut right at the knot. I braid the drawstring for the net, for that you need the one's without knot, IR it will be a pain to close and tie the net( I learned the hard way, no need for you to learn the same way)

Hair ties, Bucket holders, Belts, halters and a couple of other things.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

When one of my x's wrecked my old truck, I used it to keep the hood tied down with. :) I've made halters, and the usual, hang buckets and ect. I also use it to tie my sleeves up in the summer when its hot, and to hang thongs up with in the tackroom.
