Final Project Preparation - Lilypad LEDs Testing

I first tried to laser cut clear discs and vinyl cut the circuits and assemble them into sewable buttons. The hope was to not have to mill many tiny boards. However the size and detail of the process made it more frustrating than the (low) quality of the product warranted.


I've decided to go with: Red LED from DigiKey and Green LED from DigiKey and a sewing strategy for through pin LEDs from Leah Bucheley. Below is the finished "stitch-able" LED. Note that the anode (+) lead of the LED has been twisted into a round spiral and the cathode (-) lead of the LED has been twisted in a square spiral.
