DIY Fabric LED Strip #WearableWednesday



Fabric LED strip on Kobakant:

– Using a sewing machine, sew two parallel lines of the solderable conductive thread to the fabric by zig-zaging over them with a regular (non-sythetic) thread.

– Solder on the LEDs.

– Cut the conductive thread on one of the leads and insert the 10 Ohm resistor.

– Sew and solder the LilyPower module.

– Plug the battery and turn on.

– Use stuffing or padding with translucent gauze fabric to diffuse the light if desired.
