For our first assignment, we were tasked with making a flashlight. A portable light source. I made a light that can ideally be used in a handbag to produce light when needed. It is flat and its enclosure is a made with felt.


  • Felt – enclosurecomponents
  • Thread- enclosure
  • Conductive thread
  • 3V battery and holder
  • LED
  • switch button


The components are linked using the conductive thread. The switch controls the light.
