This is a way to power some LED necklaces with a less-bulky battery pack. This needle felted battery holder attaches at the back of the necklace, which also makes it easy to have a light-up jewelry piece that only turns on when it's clasped.
If you are as excited about the possibilities of mixing needle felting, the most addictive fiber art on the planet, and soft circuitry, here's a nice little exploration.
Step 1: Materials & Tools
- A hunk of wool roving in whatever colors you like - less than 1/4 oz
- 1 or 2 felting needles
- 1 piece of foam
(Bekathwia has a great starter kit for sewing LED circuits. She's the one who taught me!)
- a 3v coin cell battery
- Conductive thread - about 24"
- a Sewing Needle
- 2 Figure-Eight Eye Rings
Step 2: Wait!! Read Me!!
Felting needles are sharper than the sharpest sharp thing you can think of. While felting, always watch your hands and fingers to avoid boo-boos. Make sure your pokes are gentle, too.
