How to make conductive fabric traces from non-stretchy fabric and attach them to stretchy fabric.
You will need:
- Conductive fabric. I used Cobaltex from Less EMF http://www.lessemf.com/fabric.html
- Wonder Under or some other iron-on adhesive sheeting (you can get it at fabric stores)
- Laser cutter
- Clothing iron
- Soldering iron
- Stuff you want to solder
- rhinestone glue (like Gemtac) for gluing your components to the fabric.
I used these conductive fabric traces in my Caché dress, which is made out of cotton jersey. You can read more about that here: http://infosyncratic.nl/projects/cache-online-and-offline-identity/
