I forgot how addictive onion ring crisps (chips) are. Like many people I admire the looped shape of them. I thought about how to use them in a project and eventually ended with the idea of making a fabric out of them.

I glued the onion rings together with a flexible glue. The main problem I had was that I kept eating the rings. This is however the perfect solution to my Day 8: Reminder Flag .

I think the crew at Macdonalds should wear these as cloaks

Comment by A friend

When you showed this at the talk at Chelsea everyone groaned at how ‘gross’ it was. Deep down i thought it looked really tasty, these are my favourite crisps. mmm.

Might not make the best blanket for a particularly chilly night, but would be great for layering on and saving a trip out of bed and to the kitchen for a midnight snack… =)
