Instructables
Picture of Nursery Rhyme Hat
I created the Nursery Rhyme Hat for a class on youth and technology.  I'm new to instructables and e-textiles, so please bear with me!
This is the first time I have used the Lilypad Arduino or any kind of soft circuit technology, so my coding is borrowed from several others (more on my code in Step 2). 
All in all, it was quite the learning experience creating this hat and I'm excited to share it with you!

I don't know what class has its students creating soft circuit projects on Instructables, but I like it! This is an excellent first project, and the editors even featured it. That's fantastic for a first-time Ibles author. Nice work.
