It’s awesome that the flora is more affordable now!
I’ve been using Pro Trinkets for most of my projects since they’re quite powerfull for a low price. I am working on a wearable at the moment and my question for the next show would be: What is the best way to add EL Wire and EL Panels to a rain coat like surface? And as far as I know you can cut EL Panels but are they waterproof or do I have to seal the edges?
I am looking forward to the next show!
Hi Becky! I would like to make some heated mittens – I live in Vermont and brr! It’s getting cold already. I am thinking about using the heating pad, but I wonder if there is something other than a 9V battery to use to power it? It just seems kind of bulky.
