It’s Funny, But When I Set Out to Make Wearables, I Never Expect to do This Much Hand Sewing

less with sticking connecting them (both front and back of suspenders shown)

leds with hand-stitching connecting them (both front and back of suspenders shown)

It’s taking a really long time to stitch all these LEDs together into a chain on the suspenders. In addition to attaching them to the suspenders themselves, (which took about 6 hours), I have to hand sew connections between the LEDs, which requires three lines of conductive thread connecting all the LEDs. This probably took another 5 hours….

Edit: I’ve discovered that a lot of the connections I made between leds on the front of the suspenders unraveled. A good way to secure knots it by covering them with clear nail polish, which did manage to save some of my connections, although I ended up having to redo half of them.
