If you can sew a straight seam then you can make a pillowcase with a French seam. I’m going to teach you something I call the Burrito Method to assemble your pillowcase and remove any fear you may have regarding French seams. Let’s get started!
After months of searching, we finally have what we consider to be the
ultimate conductive thread. It’s thin, strong, smooth, and made
completely of 316L stainless steel. Once you start working with this
thread you’ll quickly agree its optimal for any wearables work!
We carry this thread in 2 and 3 ply. 2 ply is a little thicker than every day polyester or
cotton thread but still thin enough to be sewn by hand in medium-eye
needles or with a sewing machine that can handle ‘heavy’ thread. Because
it is strong and smooth, its ideal for any wearable/e-textile project.
It also has fairly low resistivity, 16 ohms per foot so you can use it
to drive LEDs and other electronic components that

Paper Circuits to Sewing Circuits
In our #bigmakerbook, I suggest crafting with paper circuits to learn about simple and parallel circuits before delving into sewing circuitry. Last year, my GirlsinTech campers had a great time with paper circuits, but when we began to explore sewing circuits, they ran into many roadblocks. Some had never sewn before, some couldn’t thread the needle, some had pre-conceived ideas about sewing that led to disastrous short circuits, etc. (Note: I did have great success with teaching a parallel circuit bracelet at the DPL, but I also had 3 extra helpers for that workshop!) So I wanted to try something new this year to get students started sewing and creating circuitry knowledge, but still keep the project simple.
