ABOUT

This resource shows how to create a simple hand sewn e-textiles circuit using basic components that are mounted onto the surface of a textiles material or product. The basic e-textiles circuit in these instructions is made up of a battery holder and an LED which are joined together with conductive thread. A switch is also integrated into the circuit. These components are electronic components specially designed for use with textiles fabrics. There are no wires or any soldering to be done and you just sew the components together using specialist conductive thread. The instructions tell you how to make the circuit and include photo instructions and trouble shooting tips. The instructions includes information on where e-textiles components might be purchased from.

 

Note these instructions do not include instructions on making a finished product. View a range of free e-textiles guides and projects on our Tutorials page.
