Nice job. Smiley

 I like the look of the closure, and the contrast  of the fabrics.

Wow! This is great, especially since it was one of your first sewing attempts.

Good job, you look great! Smiley

I'm pretty new at sewing too, and I think it looks quite good. Smiley

How big is #2? I really hate to answer this & date myself but I am having an 80s flashback.  In the 80s we wore big drapey tshirts & used something that looked like that to bunch up the bottom of the shirt & hike it up.  Like you pull your shirt to the side & hold it tight, then thread the shirt tail through it like a belt buckle.  it holds your shirt taunt at the bottom.  Oh the fashion victims......

It's about as big as a small belt buckle (maybe an inch & a half long?), which is what I think it is.
That fad was around when I was being born, but I do know what you're talking about...hahaha.

The belt buckles would be nice used on a handbag, like make a strap/flap that comes over the top and the fastener can be a snap or magnet but the buckle on the strap is just decorative. That way there would be less stress on the buckle than using it on a real belt, and less likely to break.

That's quite the good idea. I'm imagining a kind of retro, but dressy bag...I may have to try that.

1 These might be beading needles. Are they very flexible, and does the hole at the top squish together?

2 I would say are definitely belt buckles, I have loads in my stash inherited from my Grandma. Be careful though, the ones I've got are plastic, and because they're old they do tend to break quite easily.

3 Haven't a clue, they look a little like beaded beads which I've seen patterns for making. Maybe your Grandma was just experimenting with a new beading stitch.

4 These look like beaded buttons to me.

1 Mm, yes, it does. I guess that's what they are then.

2 Yes, these are plastic, and look like they could break.

3 Hm, okay. I'll find something to do with them.

4 Yes, that should have been obvious, they were near the the box of buttons.... I just didn't figure it out, haha.

As I just sat here, seeing people used the all-capital negatives, don't worry, I haven't touched them. (haha)

I realize they go for a pretty penny, I figured I had 2, and wanted some way to utilize one (my crafty side getting the better of me!), but I have realized how silly that was.

So, my plans are to frame them. (I still live at home, and they're not really bedroom material...but they can be saved for better decoration later.) First I need to flatten them, as they're quite creased.

Thanks for the advising though, no one in my family seemed to think much of handing them over to me.

ooooh those are gorgeous

I'd be too afraid to make anything out of them.
I'd probably just frame them and put them on the wall. Or frame one and make a shirt or a purse out of the other.

I'm a little afraid too. I'm going to keep one intact, and probably frame it. And I'll probably make some kind of skirt or purse, if it's not too difficult.

Very beautiful.  Are you looking for recon wearable ideas or how to perhaps use one or both in a home dec sort of way?

Either one, I'm keeping one together. But I'll up for any ideas for the other one.

You did a great job on this Smiley

(I sort of liked the style the first time, but your way is so much more flattering for you!)
