Our second project was to sew a bracelet using e-textile thread and LED lights. I quickly learned that my sewing was in need of drastic improvement before i do anything serious. You must weave then thread through the entire pattern route or the thread wires risk touching and shorting out. It was a fun activity that took us adults quite a while. This would be a great undertaking for students. Perhaps its an opportunity to integrate with CTE Classes.
Our simple test circuit.
The wires here can touch shorting the circuit. Must weave thread.
Finished project had on/off switch and would only work if metal button was snapped to close the circuit.
