Originally made for my youngest brother's birthday, Lightning Bug is a plush flashlight whos primary function is to provide light and be plush and squishible! My younger brother convinced me to start creating these furry monsters and this is my first.
This project is centered around inexpensive and easy to find materials. If you are an electronics hobbyist, (like me!) none of the parts are hard to find. For all the non-electronics oriented amoung us, you will need a soldering iron, solder, some wire, and an LED (commonly found in cheap flashlights.
Step 1: Supplies
- Soldering Iron ('d!)
- Needle ('d!)
- Scissors (preferably fabric)
- One white led (3 vdc)
- One coin cell battery (I used a CR2032)
- Thread (non-conductive)
- Aluminum foil ('d again!)
- Two buttons
- Two drinking straws
- Small binder clip
- Clear/Scotch/Semi-Opaque tape
- Small pilow to brutally murder ;-)
