Over the years I have acquired numerous Bakelite vintage buckles... Why? I don't know.
BUT, I Finally found a perfect use for them... well, One anyways!
...and with that, I have COMPLETED plarn bag #4 (yes, this 'plarn' thing is addicting)!! Another 'to do' item checked of my list during a productive Labor Day Weekend.
Introducing The Fall Line... (ha, ha). This is my custom designed WARRENSBURG bag (for ME!!) - complete with Bakelite Buckle closure. The embroidery floss 'tie string' was compliments of my niece while she was visiting a few weeks ago! I was making those embroidery floss 'friendship bracelets' back in '85 when I went to college, who would have thought 20+ years later they'd be making them again? ...still? - Does anybody else out there remember them??
You can't see it, but there is even an interior pocket for holding my 'saling necessities' (cell phone, sunglasses , wet-wipes, etc...).
Now, I can't wait until October to use it!!
