For a good sewing starter project, I decided to replicate Adafruit's Tron Hoodie.
You only need a hoodie, needle & thread, & some EL Wire with a battery pack. No soldering involved.
Relatively straight forward, sew thread loops around the EL wire about every 3 inches.
To get a nice curve along the hood, use a tighter spacing of stitch.
Good idea to measure the inner length of your hoodie first as I ended up having enough EL wire to do half the back too.
A second consideration is if you want it inside the zipper or outside.
Inside you won't see half the EL if you zip it up.
I chose a reversible hoodie, so could wear it inside or out.
Sew the battery connector close to a pocket, so that can sit in there undisturbed.
Completed Hoodie :
The standard EL Inverter has 3 modes for the EL Wire.
Fully lit, flashing & seizure mode.
