humbug beetles,

I was up early making bugs....so far this was all pieces of fabric that I had laying around. Sometimes it is good not to clean up stuff right away.

I made two bodies, then they needed some legs.....


I wanted skinny legs, so they were cut at about 3/4's inch.


hmmmm......looks more like a fly smooshed on the windshield. 
I have that other body started. I am thinking that I want little feet, I may try that on the next one.
