I have to admit, I was a little lazy and haven don't my research on available sources before asking the question.
On Valérie's page mentioned in this posting
is a nice dress with some led applied. I liked the idea and as I was drafting some patterns anyway, I though it might be a nice idea to try this too.
No I have here some smd led laying around and would like to mount them on a cloth strip (eg twilled tape) and wonder how to achieve that best. The tape will then be sown into the garment to provide some surprising illumination. As I wish to control the led individually and have some carrier that works well with a sewing machine, I don't really know if there's a ready made led band for such applications at reasonable costs.
Does soldering them directly to some high gauge wire work well enough?
Any other ideas? I would prefer to avoid having big carriers for the led as I wish them to be inconspicuous.
