Don’t forget about the Paper Piecing Tips in the Pattern Drop Instagram Stories
The easiest way to make the antenna, at least for me, is to paper piece them! If you haven’t done a lot of paper piecing, I put together a *super* professional demonstration on my Instagram stories. If you go to the @patterndrop profile, click on the circle that says “Paper Piecing” for my permanent stories.
