Light Up Pennant with E-Textiles

September 17, 2015

Show your school spirit, geek pride, or fandom with a light up pennant using the LilyTwinkle or LilyPad Arduino.
  • For the smallest and largest pictures, I did. For the sunset photo, I just let the light shine through the canvas.

  • Yes! I love that idea!

  • Hi! I did go through a couple stickers before realizing that I should be soldering to the top pad on the sticker instead of the adhesive side. After completing the whole thing, I realized that the stickers may not have been the best piece for this project. If I were to do it again, I would probably use the LilyPad LEDs. Sometimes these projects take a little trial and error before you find the best fit. I still think the result was pretty cool!

  • Hi! Thanks for your feedback, we are currently working on making this an option and we will keep you updated as soon as we launch this new part of the program!

  • Hey Peter, thanks for the suggestion! We do currently make the custom kits available for purchase on the website. However, we only produce the quantity requested by the kit-maker and we want to ensure that there is enough stock for that group, so we don't advertise those kits. If you would like to speak with someone about how to get a custom kit started, feel free to email customkits@sparkfun.com.

  • Great post Destroyer!
