    Quite a lot do, mainly moth caterpillars. 

    Bagworms are the most well-known type which do, though, and that may be what you are thinking of.

    A very self-conscious one.

    The Wavy-lined Emerald Moth caterpillar's defense is different from both of those adaptations. This caterpillar will attach bits of the plant material on which it is feeding to its back with bits of silk in order to blend into its host plant and avoid detection.
