Burn Holes for Pixels in Synthetic Fabrics #WearableWednesday

We’ve been following the Anthrolume build blog, which recently called out a great way to create holes in synthetic fabrics for poking through pixels:

I ended up doing a bunch of important IT administrative stuff tonight instead of working on the trench, but I did do one important thing – an LED attachment test.
The trenchcoat I have is an “all-weather” trench. I knew it was at least partially synthetic, but it turns out that both the shell and liner of the trench are entirely polyester. That’s great news, because it means that I can burn the holes into the trench for the LEDs. It is not only convenient, but burning the holes also melts the edges, cauterizing the holes so the fabric won’t fray. It’s really perfect.
