Make Your Own LED Sequin Bow Tie #AdafruitWeekendProject


Get your formal bling on with this Adafruit LED sequin bow tie tutorial

Bring some bling to your formalwear! Don’t be left out when your prom date shows up in her twinkling Sparkle Skirt, add some LEDs to your bow tie! This beginner project is a great way to get into e-textiles. No programming or soldering required, just a bit of stitching.

You don’t need much background to start this project, just check out the Conductive Thread guide for tips on working with this tricky textile.

For this project you will need:
20mm coin cell battery board with switch
2-4 LED sequins (we have white, blue, red, green, and pink)
2-ply conductive thread
CR2032 coin cell battery
sewing needle
clear nail polish
scissors
pre-tied bowtie
