Finishing Touches

Once all your stitching is done, insert the coin cell battery, and test out your circuit. Try each switch to see the combinations of colors you can create.

To finish the project, measure a length of elastic ribbon that will fit comfortably around your wrist, and hot glue to each end of the felt. Embellish with additional flowers, ribbon, or other decorative accents to hide the switches and battery holder. Make sure to leave access to the switches and enough room to slide the battery in and out of the holder.

As added protection for the thread and for comfort while wearing, line the back of the project with a scrap piece of fabric or cover the conductive thread with a thin layer of hot glue.

Here are some examples of corsages that we made:
