Material girl to bag lady.
Her face appears on a mat made from a mountain of plastic shopping bags by Davina Robinson from Framwellgate Moor in Durham.
Davina likes to recycle as much as possible of her household waste and spotted an opportunity to do something different with her carrier bags.
She said. "I cut the bags into strips then hooked them through some hessian. It's a new slant on the old hooky mat.
"I chose to do Madonna's face because it seemed appropriate. She sang about being a Material Girl and I suppose I've made her into a Waste Material Girl," said Davina, who has completed a 10-week mat-making course organised by New College Durham at Clay-port Library in the city.
