Geek Crafters Rejoice: Moonlit Flowers Tutorial

"Moonlit Flower DIY Kit" from techdyi

Those of you who regularly read my blog know that it can be a bit eclectic at times. Today is one of those days. I bring you a really cool tutorial I found online that merges technology and craft: Moonlit flowers!

What's so cool about it? How can conductive thread united with LEDs and felt not be cool? Especially that conductive thread -- what a fabulous industry supply with unending possiblities! Please see the full online tutorial at TechDYI. There is even a downloadable template. It states that there are kits available at Etsy, but the shop was empty when I went to check it out. I'm hoping a local Radio Shack will have some of the materials. Don't know about that conductive thread though ... out here with the llamas it could be a challenge to rustle up.

Love them. LOVE them. I have to do these and pronto! Thanks so much for the tutorial as well as the post. Gosh they are just so luminous which is what we all are and/or should go for. Lighting up our own and others' ways.

Thanks again!
