e-Textile Art Pin
Create a quick and easy piece of e-textile art using a LilyPad LED, Battery Holder, conductive thread, and coin cell battery. This beginner project introduces sewing with conductive thread to create a simple circuit pin.
This is one of our most popular activities for events, so we’ve created downloadable templates for use with inkjet printable fabric to get students started with pre-made designs. The attached PDFs are available in full color or black and white coloring book style designs.
Instructions are attached as a one page HotSheet or an 11"x17" printable ‘placemat’.
