One of my goals for 2011 is to learn to knit and crochet. I love the look of handmade yarn projects, and lately have been seeing more and more using soft circuits. Here are a few techniques I’m hoping to try once I get the hang of some needlework basics.
Here’s a project using LEDs, fabrics, and felt to make a decorative Christmas tree wall hanging. Inspired by Becky Stern’s Electronic Embroidery tutorial, it uses simple techniques to make a festive decoration.
Awhile back I had the idea to make big, squishy pillows shaped like Arduino boards, inspired by Blythe Church’s amazing hand sewn felt electronics. In my spare time, I’ve been working on a large LilyPad floor pillow. Here are a few pictures of the finished piece.
