LED techstyle bug

I've made a battery-powered bug with LED lights!

I made this bug at a Techstyles workshop organised by Norwich Hackspace.

A bug painted on fabric with three little LED lights. (c) 2017 by Eloise O'Hare.

The bug has got a battery on it's tummy to power the LEDs. The circuit is done with conductive thread, which also holds everything together.

If you want to make funky stuff yourself, Norwich Hackspace is a community that shares a workshop space, tools, materials and knowledge. They're meeting on Monday evenings at Lion  House on Muspole Street.
