Sparkle Universe Skirt #WearableWednesday

9711340473_b5f6e0d0f69714575128_98543f06b2

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!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
