After the stone fly contest I got to reading the suggestions and tried a woven variant with the articulated body. Thanks Peewee for the idea. Thought I would throw it out for suggestions.

While I couldn't quite cut up a perfectly good pair of underwear for rubber leg material, I did find a couple of pieces of some white 1/4 " elastic bands that I had in my junk box and found after seperating it, is a great size for the small rubber legs, a little sharpie color and they will work great.
Thanks Plumbob.

Nicely done, though.

Great idea Peewee, will have to try some of those. Been looking for a good helgramite pattern.
Thanks
