Has anyone managed to find clear straws? They seem to be non-existent here in Aus!
I've had to change my design because of it, but it'll be fine. Can't wait to post and see what everyone else has got!

usually they give you clear straws at RESTAURANTS (not fast food) when you order a coke or iced tea or something..

progress on mine... i decided to make it mini ... maybe an egg cosy (another kind of straw hat) or if it turns out big enough then the dogs noggin will be kept warm. until he eats it. my knitting hasn't been working out lately so i made a loom for knitting out of a box and my art kit!

off to work
