I think the cd idea sounds great. I entered a challenge last year sponsored by Red Bull that had to use 100 cans of their product. I made payettes out of the aluminum. I wanted to make a Paco Robanne style dress but really didn't have the time. I know an artist that makes bags out of innertubes, no, not the typical Little Earth ones. We have some awesome metal bags in the store I work in from another artist, Natalie Mcluggage. She has a website, I will try to find it so you can see them.

Try to make one out of tires! I thought of something looking like a boat, or banana, with some grafitti, maybe in red...
I guess the only problem will be findin' a tire which is light enuff But I guess you could manage,

I thought I posted the site for you, but it was when the site was wonky. Check out Natalie McCluggage's bags at www.hardwearstudio.com They aren't really recycled materials, but at least it could give you some ideas. Just as an aside, we also have hats made from metal mesh. I wish I had a pic of them for you, just for the sake of it.

Make a bag out of windowscreen(but not the screen more on the metal side, make it out of the more soft and pliable meshy kind)

Shoot, I posted this and it got eaten.

Anyway: I just adore that cd bag idea ( ) and I was wondering whether you'd mind if I used it. I've been thinking about it all day and I've come up with a few ideas/variations, but I wanted to make sure that you wouldn't mind first.

If you don't want me to use your idea, I'll just use it as inspiration for my own creations. That assignment is so cool, though, and I love your solution!

I've seen several CD bags come out of people in my program.

They've all come out pretty crappy looking... I hope yours turns waaaay better.

Mesh and Windowscreen are a bit diff... mesh is a generally used material for anything fashionwise.

The reason I say Windowscreen is because I made a few cool sculptures and mobiles out of it, and they all turns out pretty damn cool. and I was thinking of doing windowscreen bags myself.. but just never got around to it.

You can pick up windowscreen at your local homedepot or whatever. i would imagine that it would be fairly easy to sew.

Duct tape has been done... and then done again...

It's completely crazy that I have the same assignment as you at the same time. I dunno.

I came up with a really good idea that I love. I hope it turns out well.

You could try to do some interesting things with bubblewrap.. but I'm sure that's been done too... I've seen bubblewrap thongs for chrissakes

I really like your idea for the CD bag though.. to crush them... drill holes in the pieces and attach it to fabric to make a bag.. It would look so very cool.

But then again I like the windowscreen idea... Hell.. use both. windowscreen and cds.
