B(f)reak out!

Ohhh. look at the (kind of neat, almost good, getting there, bit on the long side) soldering!

Another tricky part of the process was connecting to the pins -i.e. making a breakout board for conductive thread. After a skype “consultation” with Seb and Hannah, who both work on a really exciting glove project and are experts in e-textiles, I decided to solder wires to the live pins, and then padded them with felt to stop any breaks or shorting. 

I then made loops on the wires to connect the conductive thread to (inspired by the wire-loop/thread in this example).
