Rudolph the Reindeer Christmas decoration with push switch on/off

This resource describes how to make a Rudolph christmas decoration using a PCB LED that sits under the fabric and lights up when you hold the switch hidden in his cheek. The decoration is made out of felt fabric and is lightly stuffed to give a 3D effect. It uses embroidery stitches to decorate the surface and to...

LED Brooch with Magnetic Switch

This resource describes how to make a brooch which uses a magnetic switch to holds it in place on the garment to turn on the LED. The magnetic switch is stitched into one side of the circuit. When the magnet is attached to the switch this joins the circuit making the LED switch on. When the magnet is taken away...

Lazy Daisy Skirt with Zip Switch

This project shows how to embellish a skirt with buttons and embroidered flowers enhanced with LEDs in the centre of each flower. It uses a metal zip as an on/off switch so that when the zip is open the LEDs are off and when it is closed they come on. Each flower is made up of a lazy daisy embroidery stitch with a...

Flower Power Hair Accessory

This resource provides step by step instructions on how to make a hair accessory which lights up. Photographs are provided for each stage to illustrate the techniques. A small circuit needs to be hidden at the back of the hair accessory, so a miniature cell holder is an ideal component for this project. The circuit...

Beanie Hat with a Standard and a PCB LED

This resource describes how to add an LED light to a beanie hat.It is an ideal starter project and uses a basic e-textiles circuit. Students will learn how to use conductive thread, a standard LED and a switched cell holder in order to place the light on the outside of the hat without cutting a hole. Step by step...

Be Seen Be Safe

This resource describes how to make a safety armband or beltband.The projects use a basic e-textiles circuit, but a popper has been added into the circuit to create a switch. When the popper is open the circuit is broken and the LED will not light up. When the popper is closed the circuit is functional and the LED...

e-Textiles in a Box

This professional development resource provides teachers with the basic knowledge to deliver an e-textiles project in the classroom. The four lessons of varying duration cover: • basic electronics with batteries and LEDs • Using craft techniques to create wearable electronics • Introductory programming with Arduino...

Open Softwear: Fashionable Prototyping and Wearable Computing Using the Arduino

This guide is suitable to support a full introductory wearable-technology project using Arduino. It gives an overview of the Arduino system as well as the key terms surrounding ‘making’ and ‘hacking’. After a brief review of basic electrical theory, a closer look at the inputs and outputs of a basic board, and of...

Sustainable Design: Volvo Life Cycle Assessment

This film clip shows how life cycle assessment has resulted in changes to many of the materials used in the production of Volvo cars. The Life Cycle Assessment team test new low emission materials, such as safe plastics and novel textiles, to ensure they have a neutral smell. This is an ongoing process, with every...
