Light-up Stuffed Alien (Camp for Teens)

alien monster

Come learn about the amazing world of e-textiles by fabricating a stuffed alien monster complete with an illuminated eyeball! In this camp, we’ll start by choosing from an assortment of thread and fabric colors to customize a simple monster design. Using a variety of hand-stitching techniques, we’ll fabricate a 10-inch-tall alien monster. We’ll learn how to construct basic circuitry using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and coin cell batteries to sew into our monsters for a glowing eyeball. Upon completion, each participant will leave with a cuddly monster companion that lights up.
