For this circuits formative, I chose the Legendary Proficiency mark of the game King of Glory. I chose this design because 王者荣耀 (King of Glory) is a game I really enjoy playing, the 传说熟练度标 (Legendary Proficiency Mark) is an important symbol in the game and it just looks really cool to me. The other two designs I made was a mark of the character 兰陵王(Warrior LanLing)’s, which is also from the game 王者荣耀, second ability: 秘技·影蚀(Secret Skill·Shadow Eclipse), and a Minecraft character. I figured that I was up for a challenge and I realized that the 传说熟练度标 would be the hardest to sew, which is why I chose that one.
The thing I was most proud about this project is the design itself, it took a lot of time to plan out and prototype all the pieces to make it look good. Thankfully, it paid off and I was really happy with my final design.
This project helped and made me learn a lot of new things, for example, sewing itself. I have actually never sewn before, and in this project I learned not only how to sew with normal thread, but also with conductive thread, which I found was really fun to do.
As I said earlier, this project was pretty challenging for me. For example, I had to cut out fabric pieces, which was easy for some but wasn’t so easy for other pieces, and I also had to sew some pieces on the back, without the thread showing on the front. Those are just some of the challenges of this project, but working with and around the challenges was fun, and every time I overcame a challenge, I get a satisfying feeling of success.
A tip and reminder I would like to give to whoever will be doing this project is to sew the battery holder and the LED light on before sewing the actual design. I say this because it would be easier to hide the thread and LED since you can simply hide it behind the fabric pieces, instead of burying it in the back fabric piece.
Adding on to this project, I would really like to learn how to add sensors to control the LED, as I think that using the switch on the battery holder is probably the simplest and most easy way. I would also like to learn how I can add more than one LED, making the project way more interesting that it is right now with only one LED.
