Step 3: Wiring the LEDS

Picture of Wiring the LEDS
I used stranded wire to connect each of the lines of LEDs to each other.  I left enough slack in each of the wires to not cause tension on them, and soldered them to the LED leads. 

Once each of the paths was soldered together, I sewed together the remaining side seam and one shoulder seam, leaving the other open.  Then I completed the circuits by wiring the LEDs across the seam and finally to a AA battery pack near the hem.  (remember, long legs = +, short legs = -)

After soldering, I clipped the ends of the leads and covered them with dots of hot glue, both to secure the connections and protect the girls from any sharp edges.
