Awesome mini-Maker, Sylvia, is back with a great video and tutorial for working with soft circuitry to create plush toys that light up over on MAKE!

I bet you didn’t know that there’s a soft side to the hard edged fiberglass boarded electronics you know and love, and it’s called soft circuitry! The copper clad board in through-the-hole electronics can actually be replaced by cloth, and the traces replaced with conductive thread, allowing your projects to light up, and still be huggable and wear friendly. Today we’ll show you how to make your very own glowey-eyed cuddle monster you can sew together with the threadbare essentials. Lets go!

    That’s the best presented craft video I’ve seen, nice work ninja family. I am now going to figure out where to buy the bits from to ship to the uk for my 6 year olds Christmas present. Look forward to the next tutorial x Lyndsay
