Here is the leedle green candycane hat, in all her biasy stripedy sassy glory. You can clicky these photos to see them even bigger.
An in-focus closeup of the "let's try this technique and see what happens" ribbon flowers, (with which I am thrilled!)
and a back view of ribbon flower "buds"
And a final side view of the hat, from the non-flower side.
