Default Vintage attachment mystery

Anyone know what these are for? They came in a box of Singer attachments and I have no idea what they are.

The clear part is for button holes. I am not sure but the rest probably helps hold everything in place for making a button hole

The solid cream color pieces are an attachment for putting in invisible zippers. It comes with different length shanks to slide onto the presser foot (the flat part) for various machines.

I wouldn't know how to use them on the machine - no instructions... Might string them all up and make an unusual necklace or something...

Amazing! I just got a machine with the same 'unusual' parts..one item not pictured here has "Unique" trademark and word 'patented' play around with them some yesterday and got only as far as you did..I think some are a 'shank' adjustment part..not sure..don't like plastic, but just for the age and oddity will keep..Miriam's idea to make jewelry sounds interesting..LOL

Remember buying the inadvisable zipper attachment. Worked like a charm.
