To make a 1/6th parachute, you will need:
1. Umbrella of any choice (even number of seams)
2. Strong white sewing thread (crosstitch thread recomended)
3. Sharp knife (not serrated)
4. Super glue
4. Seizors
5. Needle
6. Harness
7. Good sized 1/6 pack or ruck sack

Ok, take your umbrella and leave it open. Use your seizors and cut the thread that holds the umbrella to the tips of the arms. Don't make a big cut. Do this on every arm. Now leave your umbrella open or closed (whichever is easier for you) and use your knife to cut around the tip of the umbrella, stay as close as you can to the tip. Cut completely around the tip.
Next, lay your parachute upside down on the floor. Cut the thread not longer than 24in. Cut only the amount of thread that there is seams on the umbrella. After you have your thread cut, slip the thread threw the eye of the needle, do not destrand this thread as you would normally do. Poke the needle at the end of the umbrealla, and bring it back threw the other side of the seam. Double tie the thread and put a small dab of super glue on the knot. Do the same on all remaining threads.
Now its time to rig it up. put your harness on your figure. Make sure your harness will be ideal for the strings of the parachute so you can take the strings off from the harness with ease to get out any frustrating tangles. Slip your pack on over the harness and figure out how you will put yourstrings on the harness. There should be the same number of strings on each side. Make sure you do now criss cross your strands when attatching them onto the harness. After you have your stings tied on, put a dab of super glue on the knots.
Well, your ready for a airborne mission to blow Sadom Hussien's ass off the face of the planet.
Maybe I will post picture up here soon for visual aid.
