    Can I ask a stupid question? Why the hell does anyone need a bag with a solar panel?

      Hi Myrtle,

      Not a stupid question – that was a bit of a silly link really ;)

      Having said that, I’m always forgetting to charge my phone and camera so I could see how it could be useful. More than on an about-town handbag, sewn into a big rucksack, it could be useful for hikers/campers — charging stuff while you walk — not just phones/cameras but also GPS units and possibly even LED torches/flashlights to use when nightfalls.

    Love the garlic skin paper thing :) I’ve always wondered if that was possible. Could onion and physalis skins do the some sort of thing d’ya think?

      I’ve tried it with onion skins – but without much success – it looks awesome but fell apart as soon as I tried to move it after forming. I’ve got a couple of ideas for how to do it differently though so will try again.

  4. Wirral Open Studio Tour will have a few folks that are into recycling showing, including my wire work from old tellies at

    But at other venues there will be Susan Boardman who has been known to re-use fabric, maps, egg containers from the fridge etc and Istra Toner who works with glass mainly but also works with recycled materials, Susan Meyerhoff Sharples who re-uses electrical wiring and old copper pipes….worth a look…I think if you click on my name it should take you to the Wirral Art website..
