Degree of Difficulty: Still learning
Time length: 45 minutes
Materials: garment for sewing, conductive thread, scissors, two LEDS, CR2032 watch battery, BS7 battery holder, disappearing ink pen, needle-nose pliers, regular thread, wire cutters, and a sewing needle
Step 1: Trace the Pattern
Step 2: Prep the Battery Holder
Step 3: Prep the LEDs
Bend the leads straight up so the LED can lay flat.
Use the needle nose pliers to curve the lead into a circle.
Repeat Step 3 on other LED
Step 4: Sew the Circuit
With a single strand of conductive thread, knotted at the end, start sewing down the battery holder on the positive side.
Wrap the conductive thread around the positive prawn tags for a strong connection by looping it around and going back down the same hole in the battery holder.
Repeat by sewing around the positive prawn tag once more.
Step 5: Sew Along the Pattern
Step 6: Sew on the LEDs
Stitch on the larger loop which is the positive side of the LED by stitching over and under around the loop, wrapping the conductive thread around the lop.
Sew across to make the rest of the mouth pattern and then repeat sewing the positive side of the LED on the other eye.
Once the two eyes are sewed on know the thread in the back.
Step 7: Sew the Negative Circuit
Start by sewing conductive thread through and around the negative prawn tag of the battery holder.
Sew the conductive thread following the negative part of the pattern.
When you get to the top of the robot's head attach the conductive thread to the top of the LEDs b sewing in and around the smaller loop of the LEDs
