Im a newbie to arduino, electronics and all things e-textiles. I have a project going where I have successfully attached 3 LEDs to a lilypad twinkle board. Now I want to control this with a push button. I tried attaching the push button between the cell battery and twinkle board:+ in cell battery to S on push button, S on Cell battery to + on twinkle board. - on cell battery to - on push button. - on push button to - on twinkle board and then LED's attached to twinkle. When I switch on the cell battery, the LEDs light up. when I push the button I need to hold in physically in for then LED's to stop working. As soon as I release the push button the LEDs come back on.
Can a push button be connected to a twinkle board. Can anyone out there in arduino land help? :(
