My Hub and I were fortunate enough to be able to go to the first Vancouver Mini Makers Fair ( http://vancouver.makerfaire.ca/ )last weekend.  Tons of fun for many reasons.  But what I was mostly excited about was I bought a small Get Started Sewing Electronics Into Stuff You Wear Kit from www.polymathdesinlab.com 's booth.  I spent the rest of the day thinking about what I would do with it when I got home.  And that night, I made this...



It's a wrist cuff, and the mantel of the squid flashes red, green, blue, and white.  It also flashes slow and fast, so it is changing all the time.




The battery just slips into a holder sewn between the 2 layers


I was so chuffed when it started to flash!  The snap is the switch.  So when you put it on, it starts to flash.  It was pretty easy.  One just has to be careful about not crossing the conductive thread paths.  The directions that came with the kit has a web site (that is pass word protected) with videos of the things she has designed for the kit to be used for.  The written instructions were rather easy to follow, but the video did help me get it all worked out in my head.

Thanks Grin.  The women who sells the kit gives access to instructions to make a flower cuff and a little robot key chain if you buy a kit.  I just made up the squid cause I love cephalopds too
