Girl, Put Your Records On...LITERALLY!

Fireflies and Jellybeans is hosting an Iron Crafter Challenge this week.  The secret ingredient to use is anything vinyl.  I liked the idea of using old records.  My first thought was to melt and reshape them, but that thought soon left.  The next thought was to make a purse out of them.  But, that thought left my mind also.  Come to think of it, a lot of thoughts leave my mind....but that's a different story!  Anyway, the thought that actually stuck was to make a funky belt to wear.  So, this is my entry...I used old 45's, vinyl fabric, and silver brads.  It took a bit of figuring, okay, maybe a lot of figuring, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.    I hope you enjoy it.
