Yep.. so I'm pretty much obsessed with anything that glows. So I had an idea for this festival coming up in August. It's called IDENTITY in Mountain View, CA and a lot rave-goers go there. Girls normally wear minimal clothing, like tutus and fluffy boots, but I decided to just decorate my shorts with EZ-EL Wire of course! I started in the front with some squiggly designs on the side, and just for giggles I sewed a cute little heart on the center of my butt lol. Suuuuuuper easy and fun to make!



Materials:
 1. Translucent Thread
 2. Needle
 3. 25ft Purple EZ-EL wire
 4. Wire cutter
 5. Fabric chalk
 6. Velcro

Step 1:
Decide what design you want on your article of clothing! For me, I decided to do squiggly patterns on the side of my legs and a heart on the butt. When you've decided, place the connecter and inverter on the inner waistband of your shorts or shirt. This is where you will begin sewing.


Step 2: Begin using thread (color depends on your article of clothing) to sew on the pattern onto your shorts.




Step 3: Almost done! Just need to snip off the excess wire and sew the rest of it onto the shorts.
Ta da!

The shorts are cute! I was wondering though is there a diffrence with EZ-EL Wire and normal Electroluminescent Wire?

Thanks! No, there isn't really a difference. It's just that I like to get my wires from EZ-EL because they sell wires + inverters together in neat kit packages for a good price compared to other places that sell them separately and cost more.
