The LED Sewing kit from the Maker Shed was inspired by Becky Stern’s Electronic Embroidery article from CRAFT Volume 09 (buy the back issue). You can follow the instructions in the article, or come up with your own unique LED embroidery piece, plush toy, or garment hack. It’s a great way to get started with soft electronics.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.
Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
