DIY Customizing Drawstrings

I'm looking for ideas for how to "finish" the drawstrings on my LM and WTM (both full-size). I don't like the circle rings - heavy, noisy and they just don't look finished to me. But on their own the drawstrings look a bit naked. Also, I'm afraid the slip tabs will fall off. I don't want anything too cutesy or once again heavy and noisy.

One thought is to add another rivet in between the two at each end of the drawstring. But that doesn't address the slip tab issue.

Ideas? :thinking:

Hi

You are not the only one! I dont find the silver circles ugly but they can be noisy and they do add weight. I've been a bit busy the last few days but I'm going to take out some of the styles I have with drawstrings and see if I can think of something! The biggest issue is not having the sliders fall off.

^ Yes, I hate clanking into a glass door when entering a business meeting. Don't much like having one bop me in the face either.

I have removed all of the rings on the ends of my BEs. I have not felt that the drawstrings looked naked...I am interested in seeing some ideas!
