Etsy :: What is a Mobius Strip? How my twisted hats are constructed…

If you took a strip of paper and taped the ends together, you would most likely end up with a belt. It would be a loop with an inside surface and an outside surface. But what if you took that same strip of paper and gave it a half twist before taping the ends together? The result would be a fascinating geometric oddity called a mobius strip.

Etsy :: When was online shopping introduced? Online shopping was…


strawberrycouture says:
Online shopping was invented in 1979 in the UK. The first online B2B system was Thomson Holidays in 1981. The first B2C system was Tesco in 1984.

Shopping online was simply introduced becuase people did not want the hassle of driving all the way to the local mall..and to some people this could be an hour away depending on where you live. (rural, urban ect ect)

It’s a cool way to shop and you can look at what exactly you want with in a matter of minutes instead of shopping all day at the mall. You can’t just hit a search button to search “polka dot shoes” you have to look up and down the shelves for them. sSo simply for convience I would say this was introduced to shoppers world wide.

My computer froze up. Anyway for your next hat, I wanted to suggest to you the twisted hat. The most popular color has always been black, but you pick your color. Below is the color chart. I can’t wait to start on it! I’ll let you buy one hat with another hat free. I have another twisted hat in aubergine already made. sn’t take lomg to make. I’ll let you have that hat free. It’s up to you. Please tell me what you think.

Thanks,
Lenore
