Ever had the urge to create a voodoo doll of that one ex? This is your chance! Right in time for the dreaded V-Day holiday, learn about conductive sewing thread and fabrics, and make a soft circuits doll that lights up when you stick a pin in it.
Or if you aren’t feeling so revenge-y, we’ll happily walk you through any other project. Like perhaps a cool light-up cuff bracelet or other light-up fabric or felt project!
We’ll provide everything you need—everyone gets a blank doll, leds, batteries, and various fabrics for stylin’ clothing. And we’ll walk you through harnessing the power of LED light in squishy form, step-by-step.
Great class for those new to electronics! No sewing experience needed either!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
