This is a light-up Tardis embroidery made with felt and sewable electronics.
Step 1: Materials
- Cotton fabric in whatever print or color you want
- Embroidery hoop
- Blue felt
- White felt
- Black felt
- Embroidery floss
- Blue thread
- Black thread
- White thread
- Conductive thread
- CR2032 battery
- Sewable battery holder
- Sewable LED
- Fabric glue (optional)
Step 2: Place your fabric in the embroidery hoop
Step 3: Sew your electronics
The positive trail and the negative trail shouldn't cross or touch each other. However, it's ok if normal (non-conductive) thread touches or crosses these paths. Since your LED will be face-down, make sure you take a good look at which side is your positive and which side is your negative before you attach it to the fabric.
Once you have finished sewing this part, you can pop in the battery and check that your LED lights up.
Step 4: Cut your felt
Step 5: Embroider the "Police Box" sign
Step 6: Sew everything together
For the windows, use the blue thread to sew two vertical lines and one horizontal line on each one to make the window panes.
