Interesting! My ideas on making this neater for a next version were
either to just cut slits in the inside layer of material and hope that
the two layers weren't glued as well as stitched (shouldn't be, right,
or there'd be buckling problems?), which would allow threading wiring
through between them, or to use a belt that I dimly remember owning
which is made of strands of leather woven together, so just threading
black wire through it should work and not look too out of place.

Also: headers. :P
