Week 5 – Update


What did you do this week?

I bought iron-on reflective ribbon and made sure it would adhere to my fabric without any issues (successful! See picture below)

My plan is to use the reflective ribbon to hold the string lights in place.

I finished most of the construction of the jacket but still need to sew on the cuffs and around the bottom edge.

After talking with Emelia a few weeks ago, we decided it would be best to put a small pocket on the inside of the jacket to hide the Lilypad and other wiring.

Describe the problems you encountered.

No serious problems.  I had hoped to have spent some time working with the proximity sensor but didn’t get around to it.

Describe the successes you had.

I sewed in a zipper for the first time!

Are you on schedule?

I am on schedule but will be busy next week.

What do you plan to do next week?

Program the proximity sensor and start sewing/ironing the string LEDs into place.
