Takeaways

  1. It was my first time working with LEDs. Although it did get challenging at times, it was mostly a rewarding feeling.
  2. Since I hand sewn each part separately, the most challenging part of the project was to figure out where to hand sew the claw placement and how to attach the head back to the body.
  3. Getting the lights to diffuse properly in the eyes region was especially hard because the LED kept moving so i had to hand sew it from the inside to prevent it from shifting side to side.
