Let's 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 also one of our most popular activities for large 'make and take' events, so we’ve included downloadable templates for use with inkjet printable fabric if you want to save time. The attached PDFs are available in full color or black and white coloring book style designs.
