Sewable LED Sequins (video)

Learn to convert SMT LEDs into sewable sequins of light in this video tutorial. Video on YouTube (please subscribe to our channel!) and Vimeo.

In addition to the following supplies, you’ll need some tiny silver beads from your local craft or jewelry supply store:


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. awesome! if you need to solder a very large number of sequins you can easily do them in batches.

    here’s a picture and description of the results:

    to further elaborate:

    1. get a thin sewing pin, that will fit through the silver bead crimps.
    2. thread the bead crimps onto the needle.
    3. place the need and crimps onto a piece of masking tape to keep them from bouncing around.
    4. place the LEDs, emitter down, onto the tape next to the crimps.
    5. solder them all.
    6. repeat for the other side 🙂
