Step 1: Material -->

For the Soft Circuit Cuff you will need: scissors, tweezer or sth to bend the wires of LEDs, conductive thread, normal thread, battery, needle, various types of fabric.

Step 2:

1. First of all you take a conductive thread and LEDs, you estimate the place for your LEDs and start sewing the LEDs as you can see the pattern above. Be careful about your positive and negative sides.

Step 3:

When you are done with the actual circuit you can add some design which you choose, I wanted to make different flowers(different fabric and shapes). After you'll have your shapes try to sew it onto your shirt/dress.

Step 4:

And the last step is to put the battery to your circuit and you are done!
