LED Bib Necklace #WearableWednesday

Agy writes:

I’ve always wanted to make a bib necklace but didn’t get around to doing it as I wasn’t really sure what materials to use. Then a friend passed me an old jean skirt that no longer fitted her toddler. I used the jeans as the necklace base and strengthened it with felt. I added black lace scraps from the upcycled LBD project, a few Swarovski crystals (a few because they were so expensive!) and a couple of craft gems. The project was finished off with a black ribbon.

To give the project a sparkle, I sewed on the LilyPad board, light sensor and LED lights. This project glows when it is dim or dark, and flickers when it is bright. You don’t have to do the electronics, but I think I’m hooked ever since doing the blink bike bag! Read below for the tutorial.
