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. Before you get started, read through the Introducing GEMMA guide and install the Adafruit Arduino software.
Gather up the following parts & tools:
GEMMA Sequin Starter Pack
Conductive hook & loop (Velcro)
Purse or backpack
Clear nail polish
Computer with Adafruit Arduino software
