How to Make an LED Soft Circuit Valentine


  • Felt
  • Sewing needle
  • Thread
  • Conductive Thread
  • Coin battery
  • LED
  1. Begin by cutting your shape from the felt. You will need two sheets that are the same size and shape and one that is slightly smaller in size.
  2. Cut a small hole for your LED to poke through. Put your LED into place.
  3. Cut a slit in the back piece of your felt where the battery pocket will be created.
  4. Stitch a battery pocket between the middle smaller piece of felt and the larger back piece. *Be sure that your pocket places the battery in a place where both legs of the LED will reach the front and back of the battery (one per side).
  5. Now, stitch the outside of all three pieces together.
  6. Place your battery in the pocket and set the legs of the LED in place on either side of the battery (positive to negative and negative to positive).
  7. Add a pin to the back if you would like to wear your Valentine and you are all set!
