I present to you a l i o t h, a day and night themed shirt.
It’s features two kinds of fabric, a white muslin and Starry Night by Cranston Fabric, as well as LED sequins and the Aniomagic Sparkle.
I am a big fan of joodito, and this was inspired by her p r o c y o n.
I really enjoyed making this shirt. It was my first attempt at pattern drafting. It came out pretty spiffy.
Watch it twinkle:
Cords were always cluttering my desk. I could never find a place to put anything down.
I designed the cor(d)set to cinch the cables together. One sweep can clear everything away!
I used Grace’s Garden print, by Sweetwater for Moda, for a little whimsy and the LEDs for a little excitement.
Cor(d)set is made from small squares (from one fat quarter of a Moda Precuts bundle) quilted together with batting in-between. Being my first time quilting, I think it came out pretty well. I learned a lot from wonderful tutorials online. My tiny Continental Electric pulled through for me.
It was also my first eTextile project! It was surprisingly easy. I found the Aniomagic Sparkle to be a great first microcontroller for eTextiles. There are others like Lilypad and Flower, but those are more involved. Building the LED circuit was super fun. A little work for a lot of pizzazz!
