Slow Stitching is a crafting method used for meditation. I want to combine slow stitching with soft fabrication and make lighting using conductive materials.
First, I started painting on my fabric. Then I started stitching on it.
The next step is using copper fabric to make a touch sensor (or a pressure sensor) and add LEDs to light up my piece.
Exploring and sticking copper fabric pieces with heat and bond on my main fabric.
Finally, it was time to work on the main piece.
I did not want to my circuit be visible on the surface so I used a second layer of fabric and start to stitch my circuit and connections on that.
I made jumper wires out of fabric strips and conductive threads.
I put tape on top of my fabric jumping wires so the threads won’t touch each other.
Now that the second fabric layer is secure and my circuit is working, it is time to saw the back of the pillow.
And then fill it out.
The red LED blinks (like a heart bit) at you touch both copper fabrics simultaneously, the LED on a triangle (at the bottom) just lights on as you touch the switch. The remaining 2 LEDs on the left and right turn on as you touch the switch and turn off if you touch it again (On and off switch).
