This is the third beetle bottle I've made.
I wanted the legs and antennae to be stiff but bendable, so here's what I did:
I first knotted the narrow double fold bias tape.
Then I inserted a wired twist tie (the kind that holds your produce in the bag at the grocery store) between the folds.
Then I straight stitched down the center and cut it to the length needed.
Now the pieces can hold their shape.
