Wear your deep sea geekery on your sleeve—er, shorts—with this fun light-up angler fish embroidery tutorial and video from Becky at Adafruit!

This is a very simple FLORA project with no soldering– a single NeoPixel lights up on an embroidered angler fish on a pair of shorts. The main board is stitched on the front of the design, in the belly of the fish. A snap is used on the fin as a digital switch, triggering a color change in the pixel in the angler’s lure. Follow the circuit diagram to stitch up this circuit, and tuck the battery in the pocket.

Technophobes, take heart: you’ll also find resources for conductive thread, FLORA, and embroidery basics linked right in the tutorial. Head over to Adafruit to see the full how-to!
