Maker’s Notebook light mod build photos


I took my first stab at sewing the conductive thread from the Lilypad e-sewing kit into my Maker’s Notebook bookmark ribbon. I have gotten some great suggestions from readers on switches and wires and things, which I have yet to try. Currently, I’m just putting the coin battery into the battery holder to test out my sewing job. It works pretty well, and puts out enough light to scribble ideas late at night without disturbing anyone who’s sleeping. What’s this “sleep” they speak of, anyway?
