Hannah’s plush nightlight concepts

Here are my three ideas!


1. Friendly Dragon

I want to make a friendly dragon for a child’s bedroom (to scare off monsters under the bed or in the closet). The LEDs would be scattered in the flame, and it would be cute to make the dragon out of patterned or brightly colored fabric like in the book “My Father’s Dragon”. It would be neat to diffuse the light under the flame fabric to make it look more like it’s within the fire.


2. Contellation

This would be more for adults who enjoy a more rustic aesthetic. I thought it would be nice to embroider some extra swirl patterns and just make it a square pillow shape. I also thought there could be a series of these with different popular constellations and maybe even star signs (like Aquarius, Taurus, etc.)


3. Snowflake

A pretty compliment to long winter nights! This may be for people who enjoy seasonal decorating. As a plush nightlight, I would definitely make the snowflake arms fatter but maybe add more snowy colors and detailing.

All three of these would be especially pretty with twinkle LEDs.

  1. Fun ideas, Hannah! All three have great opportunities for exploration of the core project concept (LED light diffusion with soft materials). I could imagine ruffled or bunched sheer fabric as part of dragon’s flames. I could also imagine your constellation pillow in an Anthropologie catalog. The snowflake idea might be better as a pillow too– or a roughly shaped pillow with detail applique of the snowflake to get the best of both bulky shape and detailed look (just thinking out loud). Any way you decide to take this project, it seems like LED sequins might be great: https://www.adafruit.com/?q=led%20sequin
