Even though the actual embroidery isn't much, this project is a big deal to me because it's my first time using conductive thread to sew a circuit.

I've wanted to start learning electronics to work into projects for a long time and I finally just chose a simple pattern to put together.

It's done in hasty backstitch.  I mixed a strand of the conductive thread with two strands of silver embroidery floss.  The LED, battery and battery holder are all from Radio Shack.  The robot pattern is from Diana Eng's book Fashion Geek.

So fun. Conductive thread provides so many possibilities.  Yours is very cute.

Thanks!  I'm really looking forward to some more advanced projects now that I've seen how easy it was.

NotKnit, I ordered the thread from SparkFun.com.  They have some amazing stuff there.

Thanks for the Web site, it is really awesome! I love geeky crafts and my husband is a programmer so I can't wait to try something like this out.

And your robot embroidery is really cute Smiley

AHHH!  I'm a theatrical electrician and I NEED one of these!!! 

I dunno if I'll bother with conductive thread, but I can certainly use colorful wire and couch it on... and I'll probably just stitch a replica of a lamp... but what an awesome idea!  I love your little robot guy.  Smiley
