Here’s a tutorial I’ve put together for my blog. It’s an easy, cute, sack-style purse. http://kristinlaflamme.com/musings/?p=119 I recommend making it with the longer handles.

pretty neat. replace industrial plastic beads with used plastic, and replace a $200,000 plastics extrusion machine with an iron and two sheets of paper. now can we do this with solar if we allow more time and more pressure?
