Circuit

Making process is as seen above. For better reference, I asked my friend who has sewn her whole life to show me how to use the sewing machine. It was an epic fail. I also tried to use ping pong balls to propagate the light, and that also didn’t work for me. Below please see my friend’s prototype.

Johanna’s prototype (my friend)

Overall it was a lot of the same from the first prototype. I tried to use the ping pong balls, as mentioned, and it just didn’t do me any good. I also noticed that the less poly filling I used, the better it made my product look. I used a mesh fabric to wrap all the lights inside it, and then I inserted the mesh fabric with the lights in the middle of the material. I then lightly filled the rest of the inside with enough poly to hold my pattern shape up, but not too much, so it would not block the light.
