Before Christmas, technoplay was looking for some people to play around with LEDs and battery backs to make wearable light crafts. I think that she is finished that part, though, she wanted the completed projects at the beginning of December. The threads about it are here:

And here is the picture of the cuff I made. It was really interesting. The kit came with instructions on how to put the electrical stuff (battery pack and LED lights) together, fabric for the cuff, templates and stencils for the designs and iron-on transfer sheets to put a design on the back. It was all packaged in a neat little book. Here is the picture of the cuff that I made.

Thanks for the comments.
 ninja_monkey - it's not heavy at all.It looks a bit think in the picture because I hadn't added any snaps or anything to hold it on yet. The battery pack is small, it uses watch batteries, and the LEDs are really small, too, less than 1cmX1cm, and only a few mm thick. I positioned the battery part so that it was flat on the underside of the wrist, as well. The battery pack and LEDs are connected together using conductive fabric and conductive velcro, which are both lightweight and easy to use. technoplay really had an ingenious idea paired with a great kit.
