The next step involves wiring the switches. I used 24 gauge wire to make stronger connections to the Lilypad. I first stripped a small end of the wire and wrapped it with a small plier to create a loop. I soldered the loop together so it wouldn't slip. Now, using the 6" remainder of the thread, you can sew the wire directly to the sides, making sure you have a tight connection on the loop. In addition, I color-coded the wire so I could keep track; I chose green for ground and red for positive. Again, you can repeat this process four additional times so you end up with five sides with pockets, switches and wires!
