3D Printed Sewable Battery Holder

We like etextiles a lot - they make soft materials projects way more interesting and you can learn about electronic circuits in the process. The lilypad and sewable holders you can buy are really good but we are in New Zealand and thanks to being miles from anywhere and the rubbish exchange rate at the moment they can be expensive when we want to use a large number to run classes. Our Fab Lab has a 3D printer, and there was some copper strips out back so we made our own, they are not as nice as the bought ones but they work pretty well and you can make any colour you want.”
