I’m loving these light-up heart pasties by Randy Sarafan.

LED heart pasties speak for themselves. While they are not necessarily day-to-day wear, you will be glad you have them in your boudoir when that special occasions arises (or is in need of it). If you have sewing and electronic experience, these could easily be made in a few hours. Without this experience, consider it a weekend project. There is a pattern included for these pasties which can be scaled up or down to fit.

He used a special jig to attach tiny metal beads to tiny surface mount LEDs to make sewable light-up sequins. Finished off with a soft coincell battery holder, these take the cake as my favorite wearable tech project so far this year. Well, at least until I saw Randy’s (not safe for work) clap-off bra
