I have been experimenting with adding LED lights to make fabric postcards. Each postcard is constructed like a mini quilt, but, with the addition of some fun sparkle!
Conductive thread connects the LIlyPad coin cell battery holder that has an on/off switch to the LED light. It is the most simple circuit to create.
NiteLite Glow in the Dark Thread is used for all of the other stitching.
The flashlight postcard is a slightly more complex circuit. The sewable battery holder does not have an on/off switch, so I added a separate LilyPad Slide Switch to the circuit. This way you don’t need to continually remove the coin cell battery when you don’t want power to your LEDs.
The firefly postcards was so much fun! One of the tiny fireflies is captured in the mason jar, but one has managed to escape!
The two LED lights are connected in a series and I’ve hidden the LilyPad coin cell battery holder in the corner.
Which one is your favourite postcard?
