Materials and Tools

Let's go over some of the basic supplies you'll need to get started:

  • We suggest 3 LilyPad Pixel Boards to start with, but feel free to use more or less in your personal project. See the next section of this tutorial for calculating how many pixels you can power.
  • We've also included an optional capacitor which will help to smooth out your power supply and reduce potential flickering of the LEDs in our circuit. See WS2812 tutorial for more details.

Additional Tools:

  • Scissors
  • Sewing thread (non conductive)
  • A project to sew into!
