How-To: Light Up Sparkle Skirt

Light up a room just by walking in—and I mean literally—with this light up sparkle skirt tutorial from Becky Stern at Adafruit!

Make clothing that lights up when you move! This is a sewing (no soldering) Flora project using 12 color-changing NeoPixels and the Flora accelerometer/compass module. Spikes in the sensor readings cause the pixels to flash, and sparkle. The pixels are sewn to the skirt’s lining and are diffused by the outer layer of fabric, whether it be a sheer overlay or a cutout lace design.
