E-Textiles are a great way to add flair to your clothing and costumes, but crafting on a garment can be a challenge for your first project. Making an accessory is a great way to explore sewing circuits on a smaller scale.
For this project, we’ll be using multiple LEDs in a circuit to create an illuminated mask. Rather than stitching just one LED to the battery holder (as we did in the Glowing Pin project), we’ll use a parallel circuit to connect all of the LEDs to the battery.
Design and build time: 1 - 2 hours
This project is part of the LilyPad Sewable Electronics Kit, take a look at the other projects in the kit:
- Project 1: Glowing Pin
- Project 3: Light-Up Plush
- Project 4: Night-Light Pennant
If this is your first sewable electronics project, we recommend you read our LilyPad Basics tutorial.
