Turn on a light with a fabric switch and keep lite when switch is open? Answered

LIke a motion activated flood light, I want to activate a light/lamp by switch closure and have the light/lamp remain lit when the switch is open. I want a timer in line to turn the light/lamp off at some set time (1min, 5min, etc). The circuit must be powered by say a 9v battery, and utilize a LED as the light. I would like to use a fabric switch where temporary contact completes the circuit powering the light.

You need a relay. The switch triggers the relay, which latches.
