Trying to find something in your purse at a dark restaurant or party? What a pain! Make it easy to see what’s in your bag with LED sequins, GEMMA, and conductive hook & loop (aka Velcro).
This beginner level e-textiles project has you sewing with conductive thread and loading a simple Arduino program onto the GEMMA microcontroller. This project is perfect for use with the GEMMA Sequin Starter Pack! Just add hook & loop.
Adafruit Gemma Sequin Starter Pack – This GEMMA parts pack makes it easy to add light to your wearables. It comes with thread, needles, two CR2032 coin cell batteries, a holder for the batteries, a GEMMA sewable microcontroller, and warm white Adafruit LED Sequins. This pack is perfect for adding a little sparkle to any garment or accessory, and is a great way to get started sewing electronics.
