ETextile Wristband




Introduction: ETextile Wristband

You will need:

Base fabric

Top fabric

Conductive fabric ('bondaweb' already attached)

Conductive thread

A sewable battery holder

An LED (use pliers to create sewable loops)

Step 1: STEP 1: Adding the Fastening

Preparing the velcro (no image).

Cut the 'hook' side of 2cm wide conductive velcro into 2 (1cm) wide strips.

Attaching the 'hook' velcro.

Attach the 1cm velcro strip to one end of the fabric, with a zig zag stitch. Repeat with second piece of fabric.

Attach 'loop' velcro.
Place both pieces of fabric, one on-top of the other (laser cut slit on-top) and attach 2cm velcro strip, using a zig zag stitch across the top of the velcro only.

Step 2: STEP 2: Marking Out

Marking the base fabric.

Using tailors chalk, mark out where the light and battery will go.

Marking the conductive fabric.

Using tailors chalk mark where you will need to cut the conductive fabric.

Cut the conductive fabric to size and iron into place.

Step 3: STEP 3: Joining Conductive Fabric to Velcro

Using conductive thread, make secure stitches that connect the conductive fabric to the velcro.

Step 4: STEP 4: Connect the Battery and LED to the Circuit

Tip: make sure your stitching is secure and don't leave loose threads.
