Stitching Into a Project

Once you are done exploring the parts of the ProtoSnap Plus and prototyping your code, you can snap along the perforations on the board to remove the individual LilyPad pieces and build them into a project.

Snap LilyPad Components

Carefully snap the pieces of the ProtoSnap apart to prepare for sewing. Use a set of pliers or diagonal cutters if you are having trouble snapping the pieces apart. Discard the non-sewable pieces and scraps. The conductive pathways on the ProtoSnap can then be recreated with conductive thread by stitching the components in your project.
