Hey Guys welcome to our Entry for the Sew Contest Ins. We made an Electric Heated Sweater that uses a 9v battery to heat up your sweater. It works great yall should give it a shot. Just make sure to follow the instructions and you use a sweater that you dont really love! cuz you wont be able to wash this sweater EVER AGAIN!
Important safety point: only use this is a pure-wool sweater, or one with proven heat resistance. Many synthetic fibres melt at surprisingly low temperatures

Step 1: Getting Your 20 Gauge Wire
Step 2: Start to Weaver Your Sweater With Your Wire
You have to make sure that you weave in between the two layers of your sweater, you dont want it to make contac with your skin or you could get burned, very unlikely but it could happen.
You need to go all the way to the right (or left) then go down 1" and come back to the other side, then go under again 1" and go back. repeat this process till you get about half way down because anything bellow that is more of a hastle than anything.
you will end your zig zag at the bottom right and then weave your way to the top to about 1" by 1" from the corner.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 on the Back
Step 4: Connect Your Copper Wires
Step 5: Attach a Switch
Step 6: Make the Pocket and Put the Battery In
Attach the switch onthe side of the tin box and place it inside of the pocket. You need to then hook up your battery and put the battery inside the tin box and close it.
Step 7: Turn on Your Switch and Feel the Heat BABY!
Specially if you wear a jacket over the sweater it works better and it hides the battery. The coil can only be seen from an angle or under extremly bright lights. Enjoy your new sweater and hope you like it ! Dont forget to visit our website at www.hm-innovations.com
