Sparkle Universe Skirt #WearableWednesday

Tabbycat in the Adafruit Forums made this gorgeous skirt! based off of our Sparkle Skirt with the Flora Motion Sensor (accelerometer).

I just finished the last test with my first wearables project and it all works! I was captivated by the Sparkle Skirt tutorial, so I decided to jump head first into wearable electronics with this project.

Spinning on a 5 second exposure, also accidental light painting!

I had every intention of just following the tutorial, but after running the final strand test I decided I wanted it lit up at all times! I’m still learning the Arduino stuff so for the moment I’ve just programmed it to run rainbows until I can code it to fade between 3 or 4 colors, possibly based on motion or even direction since I did stitch the accelerometer in!

I wanted to make my Flora interchangeable with other projects (little did I know how many I would have at this point) but I can’t solder yet so I made it into a sort of badge. Below you can see my awful embroidering around the edges of my ‘Flora Badge’ and the snaps for the accelerometer badge (I put that onto iron-on patch fabric, which eliminated the need for heavy embroidered edges.)

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


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.
