loooooonnnngggggg time lurker and crafter, first time poster.
on the first day of my film class last year our prof passed around a spool of 35mm film from the toronto film festival, so we could see how long 5 minutes of film is. We were all told to cut off and keep pieces of it. After much debate, I decided to make a belt out of my piece.
I covered it in this vinyl stuff I bought in mexico, and sewed along the perforations down the side. I bent a bangle bracelet to act as the closure.
It kind of tore over time...but it was fun to wear for a while.
**also...if anyone has any ideas for a better closure (other than the ugly bent bangle one I have going on...) I was thinking of using an old super-8 spool, but I thought that would look too film school nerd.
