Looks like with all the news of LEDs causing bomb scares, and recent arrests in Boston (MAKE post), it’s only fitting we show just how fashionable and so not dangerous LEDs are. They light up. They can blink if you want them to. They are fun! We know that by adding just a li’l bit of simple technology to your sewing skills, it will be worth it in the end when you’re lighting up the streets with your cool wares. Featured in CRAFT: 01 was the “The Electric Tank Top” where you can make a fashionable tank with any pattern you wish.
