Step 2: Jacket Requirements
I made my own jacket from a pattern and design I created, but any jacket would work. Just make sure it is loose enough to have room for your board and other electronics. Also, having an asymmetrical cut will allow you to work with a larger space when placing and hooking up the LCD screen.
When choosing or making your own jacket, be prepared for the following:
1. The jacket should be made of a natural fiber, like cotton or wool. Cotton is best and will allow you to attach interfacing and will handle heat from your iron well.
2. If your jacket has a lining, be ready to rip it out. Grab a seam ripper and go for it. Try to save the lining if you would like to reuse it after the electronics are in.
